I never knew coffee could be like this! As I take the first sip it is like being hugged by a comfortable leather couch. It almost seems so decadent that it is out of my league. Yet on the other hand, I want this coffee everyday!
So what am I talking about. Well it is a bourbon barrel aged coffee that has incredible aroma and flavor without the alcohol. A smooth, flavorful, medium roast that blends so well with the unique flavor of the bourbon used to create the coffee. I had to find out more about how this wonderful coffee came about.
I am definitely a curious person and through some friends combined with social media, I was able to catch up with Carole Sprunk. Carole is the owner of Clout Coffee and also Edge Magazine. A very busy person who enjoys coffee and bourbon. I can relate to the that!
In our conversation, I could tell Carole is a person who cares about high quality and making a product special. Carole takes the time to find the exact bourbon barrels from the distilleries that she likes. Each batch is aged in a different barrel from a different distillery which makes each one very unique. A couple examples include:
Four Roses - Lawrenceburg, KY
Brickway Brewery & Distillery - Omaha, NE
So the whole process is very intriguing that takes between 8 to 10 weeks for each batch. Needless to say this is not some artificial flavor sprayed onto the beans! After the beans have been aged then roasted with extreme care, you have a wonderful coffee.
I highly recommend checking out Clout Coffee - https://www.cloutcoffee.com. I think you will enjoy the experience of having a bourbon barrel aged coffee, especially one that is so well crafted as Clout Coffee!
You know I will need to add to my beer wish list - A Coffee Stout Made with Clout Coffee. Cheers!
