This is a full bodied cheese with a nutty flavor and smooth texture. The cheese is hand rubbed with a Turkish grind of Colorado Legacy Coffee Company`s (The Cheesemakers brother) `Beehive Blend`. The blend consists of a mix of South American, Central American, and Indonesian beans roasted to different styles. French Superior Lavender buds are ground with the coffee and the mixture is diluted with oil to suspend the dry ingredients in the rub. The rub imparts notes of butterscotch and caramel which are prevalent near the rind, but find their way to the center of the cheese. The cheese is aged on Utah Blue Spruce aging racks in our humidity controlled caves, and moved to different temperature during the aging process to develop texture and flavor. The name `Barely Buzzed` comes from Andrea at Deluxe Foods in California. She was the winner of the name this cheese contest.

This raw, (mostly) Jersey cow milk blue has no buttermilk in it; however, the dominant lactic flavor of this cheese may remind you of that rich, tangy dairy product. As assertive blue, it is tongue-shockingly good, with a texture perfect for the table, or for crumbling over a salad or melting on a burger. Made in Wisconsin by Roth Kase.
