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 Beehive Cheese Co's humidity controlled caves, and moved to different temperatures during the four-month aging process to develop texture and flavor.

When you take a bite of Beehive Cheese, it melts like butter in your mouth- that's because it's made from some of the creamiest and cleanest milk in Utah, lovingly crafted into specialty cheese by a family who shares a passion for the artisan way of life. In 2005, brothers-in-law Tim Welsh and Pat Ford left the fast-paced world of software and real estate seeking a more simple way of life as artisan cheese makers. They traded in their grinding traffic commute for quiet mornings sitting with 500 gallons of farm-fresh milk. They gave up briefcases and laptops for the romance of making hand-crafted cheese: hours spent mixing and warming milk, feeling it thicken and envelope the room with the sweet smell of custard. Days spent following natural rhythms: waking before dawn to welcome new milk and feeling the tired ache of sore muscles at day's end and months waiting with an artisan's patience for their cheeses to ripen to perfection.

My new favorite
So awesome! Its firm and nutty, kind of like a Parmesan, but the coffee adds a such a great distinct flavor

Anything to be Different (coffee grounds on cheese)? WORKS
Cheese itself is delightful and one can only assume that the coffee grounds (spent) are a quirky addition. They don't detract, except visually, from the product, which I would gladly buy without the grounds. Very good cheese

beguiling
This was a hit at a recent party. For those who don't like to drink coffee, but like the aroma, this is right up your alley, too. The coffee flavor is not too strong, but adds a nice touch. A little goes a long, flavorful way.

Unique and Tasty!
We really liked this cheese! It is more mild than we expected, but the flavor is amazing. The coffee rub is a unique touch and adds even more flavor. This is a cheese worth purchasing and trying...you won't be disappointed!

Hint of Coffee
I got this cheese along with several others as a gift. This cheese mostly lives up to its description. The rind fun and notably covered in coffee grounds. The cheese is semi-firm and easy to cut. It's great for snacking, too. Because of the flavor, I don't seem much use besides just on a cheese platter. I give it a 4/5 because I was hoping it would be even stronger in coffee flavor. Instead, it's subtle but noticable.

Absolutely Delicious
I can't get enough of this cheese. This is actually the third time I got it and we devoured it even though we had intended to savor it.

Loved the Buzz!
This cheese had a great mild flavor but the coffee & lavender rub made gave it a very different and notable taste that was enjoyed by all! Will order this again-as will several friends that tried it!
