Coffee Roasted Beets
A coffee-centric twist on a classic roasted veggie.
Coffee Roasted Beets are great on beet salad with goat cheese, arugula, pistachios, and a simple lemon vinaigrette. They can also be served as a side dish for steak or burgers.
We recommend experimenting with different single origin coffees in this recipe to get your preferred flavor profile, but you can never go wrong with our medium-roasted espresso blend, 700.
