Coffee meets Wine: A Love Story

#766 Pinot Noir Barrel Aged El Salvador

8 oz whole bean medium coffee

Add to Cart

It’s back and going fast! With notes of sweet wine grapes, black cherry, rich chocolate and an oaky complexity, our Pinot Noir barrel-aged El Salvador is one of our most popular and exclusive coffees. This year’s limited batch has arrived just in time for the transition into fall's cozy flavors. If you liked our Bourbon barrel-aged coffee, you’ll love this Pinot coffee: the wine barrels add depth to the cup, but they don’t dominate it; instead, the sweet, fermenty red grapes provide a boozy compliment to a mild, creamy Salvadoran coffee with notes of cocoa and citrus zest.

To prepare this coffee, unroasted beans from El Salvador are aged for three months in the same oak barrels that aged Pinot Noir for over a year. The coffee comes from the Las Delicias farm, located in the volcanic foothills of Santa Ana. Miguel Menendez Sr., a 7th generation grower, has won numerous awards for his coffees— including multiple showings in the Cup of Excellence. Salvadoran beans are beloved for their full body, their honeyed sweetness, their soft and gentle fruit notes, their rich cocoa undertones. The Pinot Noir barrels are sourced from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a Pinot Noir paradise whose fruity wines stand toe-to-toe with their classic rivals from Burgundy, France. The combination of these two profiles results in a sweet, balanced interplay of coffee and wine that feels playful, sophisticated, and utterly unique.

It’s no wonder that coffee and wine attract many of the same fans. Both require a narrow and specific climate to thrive; both require decades of experience to grow, harvest, and process; and both speak the same language, with flavors that tell fascinating stories about their origins. Enjoy this sweet, luxurious sip of local wine and local coffee, a love story of expertise and flavor that can only come from the Pacific Northwest. This exclusive coffee won’t last long, so don’t wait: reserve a bag of our Pinot Noir barrel-aged El Salvador today, and brew up a very special toast to your day. Cheers to the morning!

Reviews & Ratings

★★★★★ 19 reviews total

★★★★★ ★★★★★ My husband and I love Pinot Noir wine and expected a stronger wine flavor in the coffee. Nevertheless, we are enjoying our first cups this morning. It took a few sips but we grew to enjoy the unusual flavor of this lightly roasted coffee.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Typically we drink stronger roasts but after a few sips this coffee, even though lighter, tastes good. We loved the Bourbon barrel aged coffee. The Pinot Noir definitely is more lightly fragranced but still very enjoyable.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I was not sure what to expect when ordering this, but I does taste like drinking coffee wine. I mean that in the best way possible though. If you are a fan of pinots then you will like this, but it's personally too much for an every day coffee. Maybe that is how it is supposed to be though.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ If you've ever tried to salvage bad coffee with cheap brandy, and liked the result, then these are the beans for you.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I did not find this to be an enticing morning brew but rather a very interesting segue in the afternoon to wine with cheese and crackers before dinner.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This was delicious with the perfect black cherry accent. Not sweet, and with a great body.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This might be the best coffee ever known to womankind. Do you wish that you could start each day with a glass of wine before a hectic workday? Wish day-drinking were still a thing? Why not drink wine coffee? This coffee has powerful overtones of Pinot Noir accompanying the rich bold El Salvador coffee bean. It is definitely the most decadent coffee I've ever had!
★★★★★ ★★★★★ You can really smell and taste they wineyness in this blend. I got it for my husband's birthday for something a little different.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ I didn't know what to expect even after opening the bag yesterday since I wanted to get to this before I start on the Kona. I did grind it all because I knew this was not going to be a favorite like the bourbon aged. It was an unusual aroma that was pleasant and I think needed the little sugar I use in a large mug for the first cup. I did get the fruitiness of red wine but think have to do again for the other notes. I don't press it strong so maybe the chocolate would come through.
★★★★★ ★★★★★ This was a really nice surprise. It was nice and warm without an overpowering wine taste from the barrels. I really enjoyed this one. It had a rich flavor that was really complex.
