1. Heat grill to medium-high. In a bowl, combine the paprika, sugar, espresso, oregano, and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
2. Gently form the beef into 12 balls. (Don't overwork the meat - this can result in a tough, dry burger.) Flatten each ball into a 3/4-inch-thick patty. Using your thumb, make a shallow 1 1/2-inch-wide indent in the top of each patty. Sprinkle the patties with the redeye spice mixture.
3. Lightly oil the grill. Place the patties on the grill, indent-side facing up, and cook until the burgers release easily from the grill, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook 3 to 4 minutes more for medium.
4. If desired, grill the buns until lightly toasted. Serve the burgers on the buns with the Worcestershire-glazed onions and other toppings, as desired.
