Barrel Aged Common Grounds (beans)
This product is currently sold out.
We love a collab. And when our house coffee roasters Dark Woods put their heads together with fellow Huddersfield folk at Magic Rock Brewing it was likely to make something worthwhile. And this js definitely in that category.
Magic Rock use whisky barrels to age some of their beers in. This mellows the flavours of the beer and adds complexity from the wood and the traces of whiskey. The same effect can be found when you store green beans in the barrels. Dark Woods use washed Ethiopian coffee from Yirgacheffe, that is “aged” in a Bourbon barrel for a couple of week before roasting.
This coffee has a subtle whisky aromatic and a lovely smooth sweet vanilla flavour.
Best for espresso.
