New Big Spoon Espresso Nut Butter Made w/Carrboro Coffee Roaster’s Red Sunset Espresso Collaboration!
The new nut butter recipe combines freshly roasted and milled heirloom Mission-variety almonds and NC Runner peanuts with finely ground Red Sunset Espresso, raw NC wildflower honey, and a pinch of hand-harvested sea salt. The resulting nut butter has a distinctly rich, molasses-like sweetness along with the espresso’s signature notes of dark cherry and baking spice.
“We’re extremely proud of this collaboration with Carrboro Coffee Roasters, which has the simple goal of getting the most delicious flavor out of this unique blend of fresh-roasted nuts and coffee,” said Big Spoon founder Mark Overbay. “Having worked in the specialty coffee industry for years, it’s especially rewarding to work with Scott Conary and his team, who are sourcing & roasting beautiful coffees.”
“The Red Sunset Espresso blend is a delightful combination of two uniquely delicious coffees. When put together, the molasses and floral citrus of the YergZ from Ethiopia turns into a sweet Red Cherry from the attributes of the Sumatra Royal Badger, which also lends a spice element, so perfect for nut butter!” said Carrboro Coffee Roasters President Scott Conary. “Our ongoing efforts as a Roastery for the last 14 years has been about building Relationships with farmers and connecting communities around the world; so we are very excited to combine those elements here by sharing the coffee, and their communities, with communities around the country, thru this unique collaboration with a like-minded business of quality like Big Spoon!
The new nut butter blend will be available to Big Spoon’s other wholesale customers around the country.
