Black Sea Salt & Coffee Smash Burgers

Black Sea Salt & Coffee Smash Burgers

Jul 3, 2023

When it comes to burgers, the ingredients matter. That's why we recommend using the Smash Burger Blend from Porter Road for this recipe. This blend is made with 100% grass-fed and finished beef, and it's perfect for smash burgers. The Kairos Black Sea Salt & Coffee Blend adds a delicious flavor boost, and the American cheese is the only cheese that's truly worthy of a smash burger.



  • Flat top grill or cast iron griddle pan (We love Blackstone Griddles for Cooking outdoors)
  • Burger press or heavy metal spatula


  1. Roll the Smash Burger Blend into balls. You should be able to get 4-5 patties per pound of meat. 
  2. Cover in Kairos Black Sea Salt & Coffee Blend. The more the merrier! (We also like Texas Style dry rub as an alternative.)
  3. Heat your cooktop and add plenty of ghee to the surface.

  1. Now is a good time to make sure you remembered to pour yourself something to drink
  2. Drop the balls onto the very hot surface and smash down with a burger press.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the crispy edge of the burger begins to form - Flip to other side and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until done
  4. Top with American cheese and cook for an additional minute, or until the cheese is melted.
  5. Serve on your favorite buns with your favorite toppings.
