Ships freshly roasted to order.

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 all the celebrations of the season. 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 flavors 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!

Joe Wright
★★★★★ ★★★★★ 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.
Joseph D. Gordon
★★★★★ ★★★★★ 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.
David Speer
★★★★★ ★★★★★ 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.
Dan Rissi
★★★★★ ★★★★★ Nice one! The wine/grape notes are delicate and do not take over the chocolate coffee flavor. One of my faves.
Ricky Landino
★★★★★ ★★★★★ 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.
