I had a bit of trouble explaining the coffee to them—I’ve never tried an aged coffee, nor have I ever had a significant conversation with anyone who has an opinion on the matter.
Water Avenue recommends using a press for the coffee, and calls it one of their “grand experiments.”
Coffee is aged in Virgin White Oak, then roasted, which, according to Water Ave. “opens up a gigantic spectrum of subtle flavors locked away in this bean.”
I’m not sure how I feel about this coffee, but would recommend it to anyone who likes a more “traditional” tasting coffee—something roasted a bit on the darker end of the spectrum, and most likely enjoyed with an after dinner dessert.
An interesting experiment by the folks at Water Ave, to say the least.
I’d love to hear some opinions on aged coffee—I truly know nothing about it.
