One of the key features of bourbon is that the barrels they are aged in can only be used once. To get the clarity, taste, and name, it’s the only way it can be made. Our friends and neighbors at Hewn Spirits make a ton of their delicious Dark Hollow Bourbon – it’s their biggest seller.
We’ve partnered with Hewn to acquire their used bourbon barrels, still dripping wet with their spirit, and age some of our best coffees inside of them. Unroasted coffee has a very low moisture content, so it soaks the rich flavors and aromas directly out of the wood and internal atmosphere of the barrel. Slowly, over 30 days, the beans reach maximum saturation. We then roast them to control how much of the aromatics and flavor will remain within the coffee. The roasting/heating process removes all of the alcohol and you’re left with only the incredibly aromatic, sweet, caramelized bourbon and coffee flavors.

You’ll notice more dimples in this roast, as the bean isn’t roasted dark enough to expand to a smooth polished finish. This helps preserve the natural flavors inherent in the beans.

A coffee this complex leaves us a lot of room to play, which is always fun! We loved the roast from very light to almost dark. We found the right blend of flavor and acidity to roast notes just above a medium roast, where the hearty chocolate characteristics mix well with the delicate custard and fruit notes.
New this year, we are sourcing a marvelous Organic Indonesian from the north of Sumatra. Grown and harvested by family-operated farmers along the volcanic-lake shores of Lake Toba, this coffee captured our dark-roast loving hearts.
These cup profile notes are incredible, featuring flavors of cedar, cardamom, and baker's chocolate. We think those looking for rich and distinct coffees have a new contender on their hands.
