Pablo’s Coffee and Merf’s Condiments Collaborate on Hot Sauce

Pablo’s Coffee has released a collaboration with longtime company friend Merf’s Condiments: Chipotle Joe Hot Sauce. Chipotle Joe Hot Sauce is available at all three Pablo’s Coffee locations and online at for $5.25.

Pablo Coffee’s rich cold brew coffee is combined with smoky chipotle peppers and ripe red cherries to create a bold hot sauce that enhances everything from breakfast tacos to pho to bloody marys. Bolstered by guajillo chile and a touch of ghost pepper, this sauce starts smooth and tasty with a kick at the finish.

“Just like Pablo’s Coffee and Merf’s Condiments, coffee and hot sauce complement each other extremely well,” said Pablo’s Coffee Owner Craig Conner. “Both have bold flavors and give you a jolt when you need it. It’s a natural pairing, and we’re proud to have made a hot sauce that is versatile enough to leave out on your kitchen table everyday and exciting enough to bring on your outdoor adventures.”

After Pablo’s Coffee moved into a new roasting facility on East Colfax in early 2018, Merf’s Condiments took over Pablo’s Coffee old roasting facility at 7th and Lipan to expand its hot sauce kitchen and bottling facilities. Merf’s Condiments hot sauce maven Kelly Schexnaildre was approached by Pablo’s Coffee to create a coffee-flavored hot sauce and Chipotle Joe was crafted.

Chipotle Joe is also available at all Snooze: an AM eatery locations and for purchase at Denver Whole Foods locations.
