Latest Cheese

Post by ryland » Sun Mar 22, 2015 6:51 pm

I apologize if this thread was already started, and please delete and direct, if needed.

My wife and I went on a date a while ago and ordered a cheese plate. One of the cheeses came from Beehive Cheese

I believe it was the Barely Buzzed cheese. It was served with toasted baguette and cherry mostardo. One of the best I've ever had.

The description on the website:
Unique espresso and lavender hand-rubbed cheese with subtle notes of butterscotch and caramel. Made from the milk of Jersey cows; this is a full-bodied cheese with a smooth, creamy texture. Barely Buzzed is our most popular cheese and is considered by many to be a great American original.

Barely Buzzed recipes

Awards

Bronze Award at the World Cheese Awards in 2012 & 2014
1st Place at the American Cheese Society competition in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011
3rd Place American Cheese Society competition in 2012
Quality Ingredients

It’s all about the rub.

Colorado Legacy Fine Coffee's produces a Beehive Blend of South American, Central American, and Indonesian beans roasted in different styles exclusively for Barely Buzzed. It turns out the love for food and artisan craftsmanship runs in the family. The owner and roaster of Colorado Legacy Fine Coffee is the brother of cheesemaker Tim Welsh.

Our unique espresso blend is then mixed with French Superior lavender buds and freshly ground onsite. The mixture is diluted with oil to suspend the dry ingredients in the rub. Rubbing the cheese produces notes of butterscotch and caramel near the rind, which find their way to the center of the cheese.

Barely Buzzed is aged in our humidity controlled facility and then moved to two different temperatures during the aging process to develop texture and flavor.

Pairing suggestions

Medium and full-bodied wines, ports, bourbons, ales, stouts and ciders
Toasted nuts, chocolate, fresh fruits or charcuterie
Interesting fact

The name "Barely Buzzed" came from Andrea at Deluxe Foods in California. She was the winner of the “Name this Cheese” contest.

I consumed a block of cheese to myself yesterday. It was a New Zealand cheddar, in case you were wondering.

Yesterday I had some Armenian String Cheese (with seeds) in a turkey sandwich for lunch, and extra sharp Cheddar on a cheeseburger (no bun) for dinner. :cheese:

I like watching the boob tube while whittling away at a chunk of Tillamook medium cheddar the size of a fire clay brick.

I've decided sharp cheddar is my desert island cheese.
