I try not to tell too many people about the quality of coffee that your brother roasts....If too many people find out how good it is, then maybe, just maybe there won't be enough left for me....I bought some for relatives when they visited Colorado, and now I (for last 3 years) have been shipping coffee back to Iowa, Indiana, & NJ. since they want to drink nothing else, Of course it comes in handy, when I want them to do something for me (blackmail can be a family thing).

Anyway, two brothers, running two very different business, putting out two great products, plus now combining those products, into this cheese, amazing, simply amazing.

Yes, long live Cheese Heads. But not the narrow minded ones not up for a little artisan cheese adventure. Ask the Chicago gathering people. I bring Wisconsin cheese down there (I think that's legal) and there's a fantastic gal down there that works at an artisan cheese, bread & wine store called Pastoral. Each cheese brings something different to the party. All of a sudden I'm craving some sheep's milk cheese she brought. I'm a staunch defender of the 10 year Wisconsin cheddar, and an absolute lover of the stuff she brings as well. She really knows her stuff. I wonder if she'll speak up here? I'm sure it would be a quality post.

Actually it was the thought of ground coffee rubbed on cheese that had me a bit skeptical at first but the rats and SFGate article helped to dissipate any concerns I may have had. It's always fun to experience something outside the norm and these appear to match that criteria. IMO

Curious if you've ever considered crafting the Barely Buzzed in a Morbier style?

We'll start shipping the 2-3 day ground shipments on Tuesday 3/24.

We'll ship to the warmer areas of the country, FL, TX, AZ etc... 2 day starting Tuesday 3/24 as well using 2 day shipping

Some ground shipments to the colder states on the East coast will ship Monday 3/30

All of this in an effort to keep your shipping costs to a minimum and the package price as low as we could.

Cool, thanks for the answer. I'll just let my roommate know that it'll be coming and to be aware so he doesn't forget about it.

Well, we'll see if they last long enough for me to finish them (*very* hesitant about buying so much cheese at once), but I just couldn't resist! In for 1.

I agree that there are plenty of good, no great, WI cheeses. They just have not quite made it to wine.woot, yet. Until then, I'll keep enjoying all of these fabulous cheeses that I'd never have been able to try otherwise.

From earlier in the discussion -


The cheeses will arrive vacuum packaged and hey that is what we have been doing all night for you. When you are ready to serve, take the cheese from the ice box and let it come to room temp for an hour or two, open the package and enjoy.

Once you open the package, you should plan on eating it within several days to a week, each time re-packaging to keep the oxygen away from the exposed or cut surface.

Or keep the cheese in the original vacuum package and age it out for another 6 months. If the package puffs during this time, it's OK. That is CO2 forming as the cheese ages. The colder the aging temp, the slower the flavor development and CO2 production. Do not age for more that a month above 44 degrees and never age above 56 degrees with this cheese. You can hang on to it for 6 months between 38 and 42 degrees.

We tried the Beehive cheese that was sent along with the K Vintners Syrah, and like them both quite a bit. My Wife ad I particularly liked the Seahive. Very creamy and flavorful, excellent quality.

The Barely Buzzed was similar to Seahive except for the espresso/lavender on the edge. The flavor of the espresso/lavender is subtle and does not overpower. Very cool, nice flavor, but for me more of a "that's interesting" type of cheese as opposed to a "Oh man, you ate the last of it?" type of cheese.

Ok. After reading the posts I am in for two. I LOVE CHEESE! 1 for now to try both. One for a special occasion, maybe a wine tasting event at my house with friends. I will be having with one of the Roessler Red Label Pinots I bought. My mouth is watering. Ship cheese to Missouri ASAP!

Can our labrats please add a comment or two on the lavender flavors?



For me the lavender aspect of the cheese was very subtle. The coffee element was much more noticeable to me. Overall, the cheese was interesting, and very similar to the "Seahive". If you prefer it without the espresso/lavender, you could easily trim it off. It is not mixed throughout the cheese.

Hope that helps

Weber State is one I remember. Wildcats.

MacRostie Winery was on a while back. Maybe they will be tonight? Tie-in from " MacRostie's acclaimed Wildcat Mountain Vineyard".

In other words, they were in recent NCAA tourney's (2008, 2007, maybe 2006), but are not in the current one (and probably weren't even invited to the dance.

If there were a George Mason winery, this clue would be a perfect fit.

Think of another University that made a showing in recent past tourneys but isn't in this one.

Davidson. Also the wildcats. But I can't find a winery that ties to it.

Also, UNLV has been in past tournaments, and done well in one or two, and is missing this year.

At one point, Trinchero Winery and Three Thieves formed Rebel Wine Co..

But I can't find anything about them, other than "The Show" Cab Sauv. and possibly "Newman's Own" CS and Chard.


There's also the Rebel Wine Society which is supposed to highlight wineries with UNLV ties. They currently have Ehlers Estate Winery.

Aha!

George Mason are the Patriots.

Grace Patriot Wines is in CA, but ancestors are from the Virginia area. AND ... the winemaker went to Fresno State.
