Barrel Aged Brazil

A big, bold Brazilian coffee aged in a barrel from Yorkshire's first ever whisky distillery Spirit of Yorkshire. The flavour profile starts with dark chocolate and nuts, then billows out into notes of super-ripe pears, sweet tobacco, malt and cedar wood.

At the moment, we create this coffee in incredibly small batches. We place the green bean inside the 20-litre barrel, then each day, we turn the barrel, take a sample of beans out to roast, and cup to see how the flavour is developing. By around the 7 day mark, the barrel aromas have infused into the coffee - and it's ready to be roasted.
