The Great Pumpkin Roll Decision – A BCBlog Editorial by the CBG

Hello coffee enthusiasts,

Today I would like to talk a little bit about a very special menu item that only comes around for a few short months every year. Although it’s not around for long, it’s one of my personal favorites. That item is the Pumpkin Roll Muffin. Now this isn’t just any ordinary muffin, and the origin of this baked creation stems all the way back to our very first months of existence.

The year was 2014. Laurel had been successfully running Brew Crumberland’s Best on her own for one short month when October rolled around and she was blindsided by her first real baking decision. At this time, she was just scratching the surface of what all she could concoct for the new menu, and while the leaves were quickly changing color, she was stuck with the biggest menu-crafting decision she had faced yet. This Pumpkin Roll decision was not something that was resolved over night, but I think we all can agree that the outcome was something amazing.

After having a few different customers ask if we would be serving slices of pumpkin roll, Laurel realized that she had to meet this demand. But how does one offer slices of pumpkin roll in an easily accessible package? This is the conundrum that Laurel knew she had to answer before Autumn passed by. After countless attempts, she realized that there really is no way to make slices of pumpkin roll that are easy to package. When she was just about to give up on the idea all together, she had an epiphany.

Could it be possible to bake the components of a pumpkin roll into a different pastry? If so, how could you incorporate the cream cheese icing that is a staple component of the seasonal delicacy? The easiest way Laurel could imagine to do this would be to make individual muffins that were topped with cream cheese icing. Once the idea hit her, it only took one try to get the product that we offer seasonally to this day. The Pumpkin Roll Muffin was born, and it just wouldn’t be Fall at BCB without them.

If anyone out there hasn’t gotten a chance to try one of our Pumpkin Roll Muffins, I assure you, you’re simply missing out. We will be selling them at both shops all the way up until December, so please do yourself a favor and pick one up as soon as possible. Make sure to send us a message on our Facebook or email to let us know what you think about the Pumpkin Roll Muffins. I hope you guys enjoyed hearing the story of how this unique item was born.


Until next time,

-Your CBG
