Staff Picks Seasonal Nut Butter Trio

Here at Big Spoon Roasters, we’re passionate about a few things—great food, preserving our planet, and perhaps most importantly, the good people behind it all. Lucky for us, our team is full of amazing individuals that make the magic happen every day, and we can’t think of any better way to share more about them than through their favorite nut butters. 


This season’s Staff Picks Trio is curated by our bookkeeper (and general AP/AR wizard), Cathy Gerdes. Cathy has been with Big Spoon for more than a year and a half, and while she’s only in the office part-time, she provides our team with a full supply of lovely conversation, warm smiles, and a treasure trove of fun stories. Cathy handles all our accounts and ensures that all our numbers are in order—from tracking down receipts to handling payments and invoicing for our retail partners and distributors. Her constant positivity and intentional nature is a ray of sunshine here at our HQ, and we’re so grateful to have her on our team! 


Each of Cathy’s Trios includes one 13oz jar, each, of the following nut butters (her words about each in italics): 


Carrot Cake Almond & Walnut Butter 

Who doesn’t love Carrot Cake? I’m not a baker, so the fact that it comes in a jar means instant gratification. 


Lemon Coconut Cashew Butter 

The taste of Lemon Coconut is wonderfully surprising and unexpected. I really love the citrus pairing with the smooth cashew base and find myself adding it to many foods just for fun. 


Pistachio Crunch Almond Butter 

Pistachio Crunch became an instant favorite of mine for both taste and texture. It’s a creamy base, infused with lots of crunchy pistachio pieces and a level of sweetness that’s just right. I love being able to experiment with spreadable pistachio goodness! 


Cathy was drawn to Big Spoon after reading—and talking to co-founders Mark and Megan—about our business values and mission. She loves seeing the way we live our core values in each way Big Spoon operates every day. The rest of the team is also a big plus—according to Cathy, it’s been so fun getting to know and learn from each diverse member of our team (and the smiles don’t hurt, either). 


When she’s not in the office, Cathy’s busy taking classical guitar lessons to grow patience, photographing or gardening, or jet-setting to yet another beautiful destination on her list of travels. 


We’re so thankful for Cathy and everyone who makes Big Spoon, Big Spoon. Keep up with us on Instagram to learn more about Cathy and the rest of our team.
