One of the most unique and flavorful coffees we've ever tasted, this El Salvador roast has enjoyed the last three months aging in Oregon's world renowned Pinot Noir wine country. You'll taste sweet, complex notes of boozy, oaky wine upon a base of creamy cocoa.
This coffee-meets-wine love story has been in the works for over a year. After housing and soaking up Oregon's highly prized Pinot Noir wine for 12 months, oak barrels are filled with an unroasted El Salvador coffee beans. The Latin coffee spends the next three months mingling and being infused with oaky Pinot Noir flavors before making its way to Portland where the beans are slowly roasted in small batches for you. The yearlong process will greet your mug with notes of dark chocolate, cherry, red wine, and oak. It's a coffee meets wine, falls in love, and brews happily ever after story that we couldn't wait to share with you. Treat yourself or someone special to an exclusive and highly limited batch!

||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was an oddly great coffee. I'm not a wine drinker, so I have to say that I noticed the dark red/purple fruit tones/flavors. Loved the dark chocolate woody flavor, and the zingy red/purple fruit notes. Very different, very good.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ A kind of unusual but certainly interesting coffee. I did not get much chocolate but did get the cherry and wine flavors. The wine notes, though, were a little too overpowering for me. I blended it with a Sumatra and it was very delicious. Brewed french press.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Nice one! The wine/grape notes are delicate and do not take over the chocolate coffee flavor. One of my faves.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This coffee is an absolute treat! As soon as I opened the bag I got a whiff wine. As the coffee cools, the wine taste becomes more noticeable. Smooth, fruity, low acidity.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Wow! It really does have a wine taste and after feel. A very unique coffee worth trying.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ A very unique aroma, definitely smells of wine. Coffee has strong fruit notes but is fairly smooth as well. Very flavorful coffee with an unusual twist. Not one of our favorite coffeess but very good.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I was really looking forward to trying this roast, but have to say I was a little disappointed. This is a good medium roast coffee, but I was expecting better. It just might be the wine tasting notes that I am not used to. I think I’ll stick with the more traditional roasts.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Loved this one. Dark cherry flavor with dark chocolate and after taste of red/purple fruit tones that must be the wine finish.|

||★★★★★||★★★★★ Holy FLAVOR! This is the first time I reserved a Top Shelf, and I am so happy I did. This coffee is bursting with flavor. The first note I noticed right away was root beer. Then a cherry flavor. It has a semi-sweet, tangy flavor. If you love flavorful coffee, I suggest giving this one try!|
