Sherry is a fortified wine that compliments whisky with its rich, full mouth feel and notes of dark fruits, nuts and raisins.
We wanted to do the same with our coffee beans.
We use freshly emptied Australian Apera casks to age our coffee beans. The dark fruit and nutty notes from the cask are detectable in all the right ways. It's smooth, balanced, with nice body. It reminds us of dark chocolate covered cherries.
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 Bean. We recommend an electric burr grinder (sold at a wide range of prices).
