PACKAGING GUIDE
This Cacao Mole Coffee Rub combines finely ground medium-roast coffee with high-fat cacao powder, creating a distinctive rub that imparts deep, chocolaty flavors to your dishes. The fine texture helps it adhere well to the surface of meats or vegetables. The light brown hue is interspersed with the reddish-orange tones of our high-fat cacao, there are no artificial colorings added.

The rub includes garlic and onion powders for a robust flavor foundation, enhanced by ancho chile powder which introduces a mild, fruity heat. Granulated molasses adds a touch of sweetness that complements the bitterness of the coffee and richness of the cacao. French grey sea salt is used to balance the sweet and spicy elements, ensuring a well-rounded taste profile.

A touch of guajillo chile powder broadens the spice spectrum with its tangy and smoky notes, while cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice add a warm, aromatic finish. A hint of cayenne pepper provides a subtle kick, perfect for those who appreciate a slight heat.

Ideal for more than just traditional Mexican dishes, this rub excels with various meats and even vegetable preparations. To fully release its flavors, we recommend applying it to your ingredients well before cooking, allowing the complex blend of spices to meld effectively.

QUICK FACT
