A visit from Airways

Last week Alex from Airways came to roast our coffee that was aged in an empty whiskey barrel that we obtained from Bainbridge Organic Distillers. We were amazed at how strong the beans smelled when we took them from the barrel. We roasted them to a nice medium city roast. We were amazed once again at how strong the whiskey aroma was after the coffee was roasted. Apparently Alex took it right back and added it to a nice stout they were putting together. We roasted more of the whiskey beans to a darker roast and made them available in our annual blue Saturday event. We made coffee from the beans and it tasted wonderful with that whiskey aroma and taste.  It really is a special coffee and we look forward to develop this exceptional bean.
