Rum Barrel Aged Coffee
The first of our local team ups!
Our Rum Barrel Aged Coffee is an Ethiopian honey processed green coffee chosen to allow the notes of a previously used Queen Charlotte rum barrel from Muddy River Distillery to accent the natural flavors of the coffee.
How does it work?
The green coffee is put into an empty Muddy River Distillery rum barrel and allowed to age for over 4 weeks. For this first release, we sampled the green coffee at various points in time to determine how much aging was ideal for the flavor profile we wished to create. While in the barrel the green coffee absorbs the residual moisture and aroma that is inside the oak barrel walls from the original Queen Charlotte Rum that aged in the barrel just a few months before. Once the green coffee is roasted those aromas and notes develop alongside the coffee, burning off any alcohol traces that may be in the beans, to yield a coffee that has a distinct tropical rum aroma with light fruity body and sweet oak notes.
This is an extremely limited release.
Pick up bags here on our website and at Muddy River Distillery while they last!
