Wine Batch #2
Wine Barrel Batch #2 is now Available!
We started with a chardonnay barrel from the Winery at Holy Cross Abbey. We poured organic Ethiopian coffee into the barrel and let it age for 14 weeks. This batch we also experimented with rolling the barrel out into the sun to allow the barrel to sweat wine into the beans. In the hot Pueblo sun you could smell the wine barrel from 10 feet.
After 14 weeks, we roasted the coffee and packaged it into hand signed and numbered specialty barrel. Only 460 of these were created. The coffee itself has a beautiful full fruit flavor with a distinct oak finish. This batch is very unique in the flavors and very different from the prior batch.
Check it out on the store and get a barrel for home!
