We're excited to re-introduce the old fashioned cocktail of coffee, just in time for the cozy Autumn season. This short-run of Whiskey Barrel-Aged Costa Rica is created in partnership with Seattle's finest artisan roasters and craft distilleries. To make these special coffees, we age unroasted beans in liquor barrels for up to two weeks, and then roast them to cocktail-like perfection. The resulting coffees contain no alcohol, but the big, boozy flavors saturate the aroma and the brew: happy hour meets coffee bar.
The barrels come from Westland Distillery, a craft distillery that prides itself on being one of the first to make whiskey using Oregon oak. Oregon oak is a type of American oak that carries a higher concentration of tannins, resulting in a darker, smokier edge that offsets the fruity nature of the Costa Rican. The coffee is roasted for us by Seattle Strong, a young, innovative coffee roaster founded in 2017 by students at the University of Washington. The result is a smooth, sippable Costa Rican coffee with a spicy, whiskey-forward complexity and a sweet, easy vibrance. And it's just as tasty over ice, like a traditional old fashioned.
Because of the size of the barrels, we can only make so much of these special-edition coffees. With less than 200 bags available, it’s bound to sell out fast. Reserve your bag of Whiskey Barrel-Aged Costa Rica today, and don't miss the chance to try this unique, coffee-loving take on an old fashioned cocktail. Cheers!
Available in 8 oz. bags while supplies last.
