We can forgive you if you’re not quite sure what Spirit Infused Coffee is all about.
It’s a relatively new term, one that didn’t exist until … well, we created it.
Back in 2016, we had the idea to blend the incredible tastes of fine spirits and bold, smooth coffee into a single unforgettable beverage. So we set out to make it happen.
The mission succeeded beyond our thirstiest imagination.
Now Spirit Infused Coffee sits near the top of the list of things that Fire Department Coffee is proud to be known for.
Coffee drinkers loved our original roasts that include coffee infused with the tastes of bourbon, Irish whiskey, rum and tequila. They were surprised to find out that our Spirit Infused Coffee is non-alcoholic because of the taste of the spirits were still distinct.
How did humanity make it all the way to 2016 without figuring out how to infuse coffee with the taste of spirits?
That’s a great question.
Certainly, a segment of that humanity was content to simply pour the spirits into their mug of coffee, grab a spoon and stir. That’s a different drink, for a different occasion. Perhaps a distant cousin of our non-alcoholic Spirit Infused Coffee.
What we discovered as we set out to create our first spirit infused roast, a bourbon coffee, is that it’s not easy. It took a lot of trial and effort before we landed on our signature spirit infusion process. We held ourselves to a high standard. The spirits had to be clearly noticeable, yet not overpowering. It’s a supporting actor, while the coffee remains the star of the show.
Once we arrived at our eureka moment, we were able to replicate it with different spirits with impressive results. Now developing new spirit infused roasts is one of the most enjoyable parts of our coffee roasting experience.
That’s why you’ll see us roll out special limited edition roasts and even launched a Spirit Infused Coffee Club.
It’s true that Fire Dept. Coffee was the first company to bring Spirit Infused Coffee blends to the market. The first reaction was usually a raised eyebrow and a little curiosity.
One of those things where people say, “That’s so crazy, it just might work.”
And it did. It was the first of its kind.
The slow build before long turned into great momentum as more and more people tried it and shared it with friends. Then they told two friends, and they told two friends, and … You know how it goes.
We were thrilled at how well received it was. So of course, we were not surprised to see other coffee companies take a stab at it.
What’s the phrase? Often imitated, never duplicated.
We’re not surprised that no one has yet matched the taste of our Spirit Infused Coffees. The process is not easy. It took a lot of time and a lot of effort for us to arrive at a level of proficiency to create a product we were proud to share with all of you.
We don’t settle for simply being the first to do it. We always want to be the best. We’re always striving to make the best Spirit Infused Coffee roasts on the market.
Just like coffee lovers have their go-to roasts, people who enjoy spirits have their favorite drinks that they keep coming back to again and again.
That’s where our spirit infused journey began. We chose the most popular spirits, including bourbon, Irish whiskey, rum and tequila.
These are staples in the world of spirits, and now they are staples in our Spirit Infused Coffee collection. We make these popular favorites available all year long, and they remain among our most popular roasts.
The big draw is the authenticity of the taste. When you’re sipping Bourbon Infused Coffee, you’ll discover tasting notes that evoke the barrel aging. Irish Whiskey Infused Coffee will transport you to a Dublin pub and Rum Infused Coffee to the Caribbean sands.
Tequila Infused Coffee? Well, you just might find yourself searching for the worm at the bottom of the coffee pot.
And you’ll remember everything in the morning!
Like any connoisseur of coffee or spirits, once we developed a taste for it, our adventure — and yours — had only begun.
We began experimenting with infusing even more specialized spirits to create new roasts to treat your senses. Now these limited edition roasts have become much-anticipated and highly sought-after.
To feed the thirst for new spirit infused roasts, we created the Spirit Infused Coffee Club. Now spirit infused fans can sign up to receive a new specialty roast every month.
These roasts are not available for one-time purchase, so they are a special treat for our club members. Previous Spirit Infused Coffee Club roasts include Coconut Rum Infused Coffee, Pumpkin Rum Infused Coffee, Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Infused Coffee, Old Fashioned Infused Coffee and Special Reserve 12-Year-Old Scotch Infused Coffee.
And we’ve got even more exciting roasts that we’re looking forward to in the months ahead. We love pushing the limits of what we can do with our coffee, and we’re thrilled to have you join us on this delicious ride.
