Barrel Conditioned Coffee

Every time we age beans in a barrel environment, we introduce many variables that cannot be replicated. Each bean-in-barrel environment is unique and while flavor notes may vary from release to release, know that there is something magical that happens when you cook with spirits.

PLEASE NOTE: this is a VERY different product and flavor profile than the rye, bourbon, or whiskey Barrel Conditioned Coffee.

This is a one-of-a-kind product that is very unique to both J. Rieger & Co. and Thou Mayest.

We aged raw, green beans of our Brazil “Smooth Operator” coffee in a J. Rieger & Co. Caffé Amaro barrel for 10 days. We monitored the moisture of the unroasted beans by removing the rings off the barrels daily - we have to be careful not to rehydrate the beans. Once the right moisture is reached, we pull the beans out and let them rest for a few weeks. We then can roast the beans more delicately. This particular roast is medium/light in color, but there are a lot “heavier” and darker notes rolling around.

This is complex and the flavor radically changes from when the coffee is hot, to when it is cold. The amaro botanicals, along with the intense environment of the barrel, bring out surprisingly delicate, but strong notes. We noticed
• nutty vanilla
• sweet boozy-soaked cherries
• bittersweet dark chocolate
• caramel
• heavy mouthfeel
Let this product cool off to room temperature to reveal the sweeter, “boozy” fruit notes.
