Dark Woods Common Grounds Barrel Aged 8x250g (Beans)
Barrel Aged coffee beans. Notes of vanilla, dried fruits and milk chocolate. Medium roast. A faint aroma of the whiskey (especially when you grind it!) gives way to a sweet smooth vanilla flavour. Just delicious.
We are delighted that Common Grounds has won a coveted 3-star Gold award in the 2017 Great Taste Awards. GTA judges commented that it “has great nose; feels like you can taste the barrels in the aroma. It delivers a big hit of blackcurrants and forest fruits. With milk, the fruits are even more pronounced. Funky, sweet, rich, and smooth. Delicious. 3 star.”
Last year saw the launch of Common Grounds, a collaboration with ourselves and Magic Rock Brewery, to make the the ultimate triple coffee porter. This collaboration has now gone even further.
Magic Rock use whiskey barrels to age some of their beers in. This mellows the flavours of the beer and adds complexity from the wood and the traces of whiskey. The same effect can be found when you store green beans in the barrels. This is the second batch using some washed Ethiopian coffee from Yirgacheffe, that was “aged” in a Woodford Reserve Bourbon barrel for a couple of week before roasting
