If the man you have in mind for a gift is both a coffee and whiskey lover, then this is the ideal present for him. The Morning Dram's coffees are roasted in whiskey barrels giving different expressions in flavor. While a bag on its own would make a wonderful housewarming gift, the starter kit – complete with grinder and pour over option – would make a more complete present.

I was able to sample The Morning Dram coffee and can say this is a bold, flavorful coffee. I am amazed by how much unique flavor the beans get from being barrel-aged!

American Whiskey magazine
"I’m a purist and take my morning brew black, so coffee that I’d put my name behind must be balanced, smooth, and complex – a coffee that you can drink slowly and appreciate on its own, like a fine spirit. With The Morning Dram, you can taste the difference in the quality with each sip."
