When two things are as awesome as bourbon and coffee, they were bound to get together at some point.
We assume they met at a bar.
Bourbon goes into a cup of coffee, sparks fly and everyone knows immediately that they were made for each other. But like every good relationship, that bond has matured with time.
It’s not about the alcohol anymore.
With bourbon infused coffee, the alcohol content disappears during the roasting process, so you can enjoy it anytime. Fire Dept. Coffee was a pioneer of the Spirit Infused Coffee craze when we created our signature infusion process. So if you want to know what to look for when you’re looking for bourbon coffee, we’ve got you covered.
We might not want to admit it, but the smell of coffee is almost as important as the taste.
When that first whiff hits your nose, you know you’re in for a treat. It sets the tone for the coffee experience you’re about to have. It usually sets the tone for your entire day.
When you’re brewing bourbon coffee, if it’s the good stuff, you will know immediately that this is something special. You’ll smell the bourbon, and you’ll smell the coffee. It’ll be as if you’re noticing them individually and together at the same time.
It’s difficult to wrap your head around that, but the aroma will wrap itself around you. You might find yourself just standing by the coffee pot until the time arrives.
That’s OK. Enjoy the moment.
Infusing bourbon into coffee beans is a high-wire act. Because the best qualities of great bourbon and great coffee beans can vary greatly, it’s no easy task to find the bourbon and beans that perfectly complement each other.
When you’re drinking bourbon coffee, keep in mind that you’re drinking coffee, first and foremost, but bourbon plays a vital role in the final product.
So you should taste the coffee first but, as you savor the sip, the bourbon notes will arrive like a pleasant surprise. The bourbon should enhance but never overpower the taste of the coffee. You don’t want to feel as if you’ve just taken a swig of that discount bourbon that you thought was the best thing ever when you were a freshman in college.
When we’re creating our bourbon coffees, we make sure that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. That’s true for our original Bourbon Infused Coffee, and it’s true for the specialty roasts like Black Cherry Bourbon Infused Coffee, Vanilla Bean Bourbon Infused and Salted Caramel Bourbon Infused.
Each roast delivers a unique flavor profile, drawn from the type of bourbon we choose and the varieties of coffee beans we’ve selected for the pairing.
Marketing is great. We have almost as much fun creating our marketing as we do creating our coffee.
And we know that a happy customer is ALWAYS the best marketing. So if you want to find a great bourbon coffee, go find great bourbon coffee reviews.
People are passionate about coffee. They love drinking it, discussing it and sharing their favorites. So if you visit a coffee roaster’s website and don’t see reviews, it doesn’t mean the coffee is bad — but it’s not a good sign.
At Fire Dept. Coffee, we give everyone a chance to visit our website and let us know exactly what they think of our coffee. And we understand that everyone has different tastes in coffee. That’s why we pride ourselves on offering an exceptional variety of roasts, so there’s something for everyone.
Our customers never hesitate to chime in and give their take on our roasts. In fact, you’ll find hundreds of reviews for our bourbon coffees. Take the time and read through them to get a sense of what stands out about each roast.
It’ll help steer you toward the bourbon coffee that best fits the taste that you’re craving.
