The rich flavors of coffee aren’t only for your morning brew. Coffee grounds and espresso powders can give an old dish new life. As a rub for meat, it can create a crispy skin, or simply add depth to the dish. In sweets, the same notes that are craved in mocha lattes or other brewed beverages become a baked treat you’ll want to make again and again. Take these eight recipes and set a date with your new favorite ingredient: coffee.
