Apera Sherry Barrel Aged Coffee
As a spirits drinker, you know that many whiskeys are aged in ex-sherry casks. Sherry is a fortified wine that compliments whiskey with its rich, full-mouth feel and notes of dark fruits, nuts, and raisins. We age coffee beans in freshly emptied Australian Apera Sherry barrels so they can impart those flavors on our coffee beans.
Flavor notes: Dark chocolate-covered cherries, Brazil nuts, Sweet dates & figs
Bean origin: Guatemala
Barrel: Apera sherry
Size: 12 oz Whole Bean
Flavor: This is a medium roast that is sweet with subtle sherry flavors. The dark fruit and nutty notes from the cask are detectable and complement the chocolate notes from the coffee bean. This coffee is balanced with a nice body and reminds us of dark chocolate-covered cherries mixed with nuts.
None of our coffees contain any alcohol. The barrel aging just imparts the great flavors from the spirits it once held.
All of our coffees are whole beans. We recommend an electric burr grinder (sold at a wide range of prices) or our handheld manual grinder.
