I know what you’re thinking. Coffee on a burger? That’s crazy! I know. But – it’s not.

It’s crazy amazing.

Ambiance coffee from Smart & Final comes in a huge variety of flavors for brewing.

I was just as please with their Ambiance Instant Coffee selection!  I chose the decaffeinated Classic Roast for this recipe.  It was the perfect touch!

Before I prove to you, just how amazing this coffee glaze is, I should tell you about why I love Smart & Final.

#Shop #ChooseSmart #Cbias Store

Not only have they been around forever, but they’ve been the “Smart AND Final” choice for just as long.  Many years ago before my oldest son was born, I worked at a company where the owner refused to shop at the “supermarket.”  She would only shop at Smart and Final.  It used to get on my last nerve!  Just go the “blah blah” store, I’d tell her.  No.  She just wouldn’t.  So one day I ventured in to see what all (her) the hype was about.  I was sold.  I got it.  The prices were great.  The service was amazing.  The selection was fantastic.  Somehow, there were no hour-long-waits in line!  Over the years, food has gotten so expensive.  Smart and Final remains as competitive as it ever was, with even greater product selections now.  They have everything from produce to meats to coffee.  To this day, I’m a Smart & Final fan! I’m in and out in a flash.  Getting my coffee for this recipe that I just had to share with you all was WAY faster than getting it from the local supermarket, which happens to be closer.

Way to go, Smart & Final!

I love to think outside of the Bag, Jar, and metaphorical box! It’s my thing.  So I came up with this super easy  to make recipe using one of my favorite things in the (entire) world; coffee!

First, gather your INGREDIENTS for the Ambiance Coffee & Worcestershire Glaze:

#Shop #ChooseSmart #Cbias Ingredients

Ambiance Coffee & Worcestershire Glaze Ingredients:

  1. 1 Cup Sugar
  2. 1/4 Cup Water
  3. 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  4. 1/4 Cup Ketchup


Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer for 4-5 minutes. Stir each minute. Set aside. Heated sauce will have a thinner consistency. Use the sauce to baste your burger while it cooks on the grill. You can also use the sauce at a cooler temperature for a thicker glaze for topping your burger with. This yummy glaze will surprise you! Think outside the jar.
