This limited edition Espresso Nut Butter collaboration with our friends at Intelligentsia combines fresh-roasted heirloom Mission almonds and Runner peanuts, Muddy Pond sorghum syrup, and sea salt with Black Cat Organic Espresso and its signature flavors of caramel, brown sugar, and dark chocolate. Intensely rich yet balanced, it’s delightful with fresh fruit, stirred into warm oatmeal, on toast, and of course, right out of your spoon.
Mark Overbay, founder of Durham-based Big Spoon Roasters, speaks to not only the texture of his nut butters, but also what his company stands for as a whole. Last month, Meredith Davin and I visited Big Spoon Roasters' facility, met Mark, and fell further in love with this company.
"We love their texture; it’s a combo of melt-in-your mouth creamy with a bit of crunch from puffed quinoa and cacao nibs. They’re great snacks on their own, of course, but we also love crumbling a bar over yogurt or a smoothie bowl."
Our Almond Coconut Butter is handmade from fresh-roasted heirloom Mission variety almonds, crispy toasted coconut flakes, raw organic coconut crystals, and hand-harvested sea salt to create a decadent, naturally sweet, irresistible nut butter reminiscent of homemade coconut macaroons.
