we're stoked to offer our most limited release of coffee yet: introducing our barrel aged rye whiskey roast! back in July of 2019 we put 20lbs of our Huehuetenango, Guatemala green coffee into a rye whiskey cask from New Holland Spirits in Holland, MI. After six months we pulled it out and roasted it to a perfect medium roast.
The flavor tastes very similar to a rye whiskey, without any alcohol taste or effect. The beans themselves kept their caramel and chocolate notes to complement the barrel notes.
This is our most limited release to date, so make sure you get some before it's gone!
Your purchase supports the School of Hope in Guatemala, which serves students in Huehuetenango by offering a quality bilingual education.
Barrel Aged Rye Whiskey Coffee
In order to keep your coffee as fresh as possible, make sure you keep your beans away from coffee's four main enemies: air, moisture, heat, and light. Preferably, keep your coffee in an air-tight container, but out of light. We know our beans are pretty, but keeping the beans in an opaque container will prolong their shelf life. Do not put your beans in a cabinet above the stove, or in an area that receives strong sunlight. Lastly, do not put your beans in the freezer. We follow the rule of wherever we would be comfortable, there our beans will be comfortable too. Follow these tips and your coffee will taste great for an extended amount of time!
