Coffee lovers – get ready for a mug of caffeinated goodness! The Blue Strawberry Coffee Company has been brewing cups of joe since 2003. Wesley Bryant, the company’s second owner, recently transitioned the business from a café to a coffee subscription service. With a name you can’t forget, Blue Strawberry is a delicious way to enjoy roasted coffee, while staying local.
“Our mission is simple – we want to roast an excellent cup of coffee that everyone can enjoy and share,” their website explains. “Whether you like coffee as dark as a moonless night, as light as the morning sun, or anywhere in between, we got you covered! Each batch of coffee is roasted with a specific coffee drinker in mind. We roast small custom batches every week to ensure the best quality and freshest taste.”
Blue Strawberry has a variety of custom blends that are sure to tingle your tastebuds. Classic varieties come in different and fun names like All Nighter (dark roast), Midnight Noire (French roasted), and Jitter Free (Columbian decaf). Choose between whole beans or ground.
Love flavored coffee? You might be enticed by the Chocolate Raspberry or Maple Nut. Bryant enjoys creating candy-inspired options, like Snickers, Mint Chocolate Chip, and S’mores. A fun way to wake up the senses!
Subscriptions can be tailored to your preference. If you enjoy variety, sign-up for the Roasters Choice for a surprise every time. Or you can drink a roast from a single country of origin. Can’t make up your mind? Try the sample bundle and explore different blends.
“We roast our beans in-house and ship them directly to you as often as you like,” their website says. “Just pick the beans, the size, and the grind of your choice, and we’ll take care of the rest. You can update your subscription at any time.”
You can also shop online to purchase individual bags. Definitely consider adding a box of locally made macarons made with Blue Strawberry’s raspberry espresso coffee! And if you know someone who loves the smell of coffee but doesn’t drink it, there are Espresso and Snickers Coffee scented candles.
