I have had only two barrel-aged coffees so far in my life. (I know that I am behind) but I am intrigued by this new hoppy / whiskey version from Fireside Coffee.
It is pretty expensive but this is why…
“We age our coffee beans in a Founders Brewing Company barrel for 2 weeks before roasting them. The barrel is used twice before we get it…. once for whiskey, and once for beer. The aging process infuses the coffee with light and smooth beer notes, and hints of hops & whiskey.”
Not to mention it is small batch beans and not some large Starbuck-ian amount.
