Flavored Coffee

Experience the rich and complex flavors of our Whiskey Barrel-Aged flavored specialty coffee, where the bold sophistication of whiskey meets the smooth richness of freshly roasted coffee beans. Each sip of this exquisite blend is a journey through layers of flavor, offering a truly unique and indulgent coffee experience.

 

Our Whiskey Barrel-Aged flavored specialty coffee is a unique and artisanal coffee made with our single-origin Guatemala beans that undergo a special aging process in barrels that were once used to mature whiskey. This process imparts distinctive flavors and aromas to the coffee beans, creating a fusion of rich coffee notes with the nuanced characteristics of the whiskey-infused barrel.

 

Here's an overview of the whiskey barrel-aged coffee process:

Barrel Selection

The process begins with selecting high-quality Bourbon barrels that previously held whiskey. These barrels contribute residual flavors from the whiskey, such as vanilla, caramel and the distinctive oaky notes.

 

Coffee Bean Selection

High quality, Guatemalan specialty coffee beans are chosen to undergo the aging process. The beans' inherent characteristics combine with the whiskey-infused flavors during aging.

 

Aging Process

The chosen coffee beans are placed in the whiskey barrels, allowing them to absorb the residual flavors and aromas from the wood and whiskey. The aging process lasts 30 days.

 

Roasting

After the aging process is complete, the coffee beans are carefully roasted  (to order upon purchase) to develop their unique profile while preserving the acquired whiskey notes. The roasting process enhances the flavors and ensures a well-balanced cup.

 

Roast: Medium

 

Flavor Profile

Whiskey barrel-aged specialty coffee often exhibits a complex flavor profile that includes notes of whiskey, oak, vanilla, caramel, and sometimes subtle hints of the original coffee's characteristics. The result is a rich and nuanced cup with a delightful fusion of coffee and whiskey-inspired flavors.

 

Whiskey barrel-aged specialty coffee is appreciated by those who enjoy both coffee and whiskey, as it offers a distinctive and elevated coffee experience. The process adds a layer of sophistication to the beans, creating a unique brew that appeals to enthusiasts seeking something beyond traditional coffee flavors.

 

Types of Grinds
Whole Bean: Grind yourself (Freshest way)

Standard: Drip brewing, Keurig machines and pour-over.

Espresso: Espresso machines

Coarse: French press and cold brew

 

Types of Roasts
Light: roasts have a lighter color, higher acidity, and retain more of the original bean flavors.

Medium: roasts have a balanced flavor profile with a slightly darker color.

Dark: roasts have a bold flavor, lower acidity, and a shiny surface due to oils released during roasting.

 

The Golden Ratio
The Specialty Coffee Association of America has set a golden ratio of 1:18, which is approximately 55 grams of coffee for 1000 ml (grams) of water. To achieve a golden standard cup, it's recommended to use two tablespoons per 6oz cup. This varies depending on brew method and personal preference.

 

Types of Brewing Methods
Drip Coffee: Add water and coffee grounds to the machine's reservoir and filter, then turn it on. The machine heats the water and drips it evenly over the coffee grounds. Once brewed, serve and enjoy.

 

Espresso: Fill the portafilter with fine grounds, tamp them down evenly, and attach it to the espresso machine. Start the extraction process, and the machine will force hot water through the grounds under pressure. Collect the espresso shot in a cup and serve immediately.

 

French Press: Add coarsely ground coffee to the French press, pour hot water over it, and let it steep for about 4 minutes. Press down the plunger slowly to separate the grounds from the brewed coffee, then pour and serve.

Cold Brew: Combine coarsely ground coffee and cold water in a jar or pitcher, then let it steep in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Once steeped, strain the mixture to remove the grounds and dilute with water or milk to taste.

 

Pour-Over: In pour-over coffee brewing, hot water is poured over coffee grounds in a filter cone. The water drips through the grounds and filter into a vessel below. It allows for precise control over brewing variables like water temperature and pouring technique, resulting in a clean and flavorful cup.

Each method may require slight variations in measurements, grind size, and brewing time to achieve the desired flavor profile. Experimentation and practice will help you refine your technique for each method.
