Legend has it Jose Gaspar, one of the last Buccaneers, sailed the seas with a taste for adventure and treasure.  Gaspar charted a course in search of a new fortune, and reached the lands of what we now know as Indonesia and Africa.  This is where he discovered the treasure he was searching for: coffee cherries.

Passed down through many generations, Joffrey’s Roastmaster is one of the few to hold the mystery of these cherries’ historic location, as well as the secrets of their delicacy and flavor. We took Gaspar’s treasured cherries and roasted them to bring out the Tampa Bay Pirate that lies in us all. This year, we are proud to be the Official Coffee of Tampa’s Gasparilla Celebration and share with you the amazing secret of Gaspar’s Brew.

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co. finds Gaspar’s Brew to be the perfect blend of Tampa Bay’s heritage and the vibrancy Tampa has today.  Ted Abrams, CEO of Joffrey’s shared; “Being a part of the Tampa Bay community since 1984, we are extremely honored and excited to be the Official Coffee for Tampa’s Gasparilla Celebration, and to bring this unique blend to life.”

Curious to try Gaspar’s Brew? Joffrey’s Coffee Truck will be stationed at Bayshore Blvd. NB and S. Howard Ave. for Gasparilla Children’s Extravaganza serving coffee, tea, smoothies and pastries.  Gaspar’s Brew will be featured at Gasparilla signature events
