Every roaster needs a signature espresso blend, and Bold Bean has done themselves proud. SweetSpot is elegantly spicy, sweet and syrupy, with enough fruited complexity to keep things interesting. Their goal is to create a coffee that is both comfortable and thrilling, and they want coffee lovers to be thrilled with how SweetSpot comforts them. It’s a supremely sweet and viscous, easy-to-work-with coffee that lends excitement to a morning wake-up cup and anytime of the day thereafter. The Brazilian component of SweetSpot Espresso Blend gives it structure and body while contributing a deep and fruity 80%-cocoa notes along with pecans, vanilla and caramel. The rotating Latin American component adds a liveliness and enough citrus-toned brightness to sparkle with vitality and complexity. Bold Bean sources the blend components with the goal of seasonal freshness while keeping the flavor profile consistent throughout the year. That way, every shot of SweetSpot yields consistently brilliant results. Holding its own as a straight espresso, in milk-based drinks, and stellar as brewed coffee, too, whatever the method, this espresso should hit your coffee sweet spot.

Bold Bean Coffee
Bold Bean Coffee has been making history ever since Jay Burnett launched the roasting company in 2007 in Jacksonville, Florida: from opening their first retail shop in 2011, expanding to three cafes and a roastery, to winning best coffee shop in Jacksonville for several years running.
These days Jay’s son, Zack Burnett (an avid surfer who calls the beach his “third place”), drives the vision of Bold Bean, buying their green coffee (including an increasing number of direct trade relationships) and overseeing daily operations, with Jay still active behind the scenes, and head roaster Chris Rucker presiding over a San Franciscan SF-75 roaster.
For Zack, coffee is a tool for promoting the wellbeing of others:
“I enjoy every day that we can positively affect people’s lives through the product we make and the interactions we have. These effects can stretch through the entire chain of coffee from producer to consumer. Not many jobs provide people with this opportunity, so for me, that’s pretty special.”
