I’ve been a longtime regular customer for Bold Bean Coffee Roasters here in Jacksonville, Floridad. They have helped pioneered specialty coffee in North East Florida for 11 years. They really have mastered the experience of enjoying unique coffee blends carefully prepared and making you feel welcomed by baristas who seem to really care about what they do. Its no wonder they have retained and maintained a wide and yet particular customer loyalty wanting artisan coffee.
I’ve been a customer when the Roastery used to be located in the Murray Hill neighborhood district. It was nice when sometimes things got too busy on Stockton street , then the roastery was a haven. That’s where I met baristas like John Boback, Joe Simpson, Angela, and many others that were so welcoming. Fast forward and many cups of coffee later, I was approached by the Barista guru/dealmaker himself Paul Carr. Paul approached me with the task of making Bold Bean socks. It was a natural fit to them after being a longtime supporter and customer.
They wanted something that didn’t say Bold Bean and I was excited about the creative freedom around that. I was working on my 1st design already but this was an opportunity to not pass up. By many uncertainties and perseverance, now these socks are finally here. Designed by myself and manufactured by BUGATCHI these socks are truly unique. Handmade in Italy with 80% mercerized Egyptian cotton. You’re getting a product normally found in high end department stores like Nordstrom now in the possession of your local specialty coffee shop. Available in all Bold Bean locations and online here.
