Jack’s Bourbon Cooled Sumatra is back at Holler Roast Coffee this holiday season. Every year, Holler Roast Coffee sources a fresh crop of Jack’s signature bean, and every year they sell out. This premium coffee makes a great gift and you can add gift wrapping options, or add a special mug or cup to make an easy gift for your difficult-to-buy-for friends and relatives.
The beans are roasted to order in small batches and cooled with Four Roses Bourbon to increase speed of cooling and better develop the natural sugars at the end of the roasting process. We stumbled on this method of cooling beans in Vietnam. Street roasters use vodka to cool their beans. You will be surprised by the sweet, chocolatey tones.
It is no surprise that Jack likes this Sumatran bean with its complex flavor profile and hearty-yet-smooth mouthfeel. It is even less surprising that he prefers the coffee roasted more lightly than is traditionally recommended for the Sumatran bean at a medium roast. Jack does like to go his own way, but if you want it darker or lighter we can do that for you.
With the Holidays nigh, Holler Roast has launched a few great gift ideas beyond Jack’s signature coffee:
Spirit-Cooled Coffee using Bourbon, Rum or Nicole Sauce’s House-Made Vanilla.
Sampler Pack Trios, either spirit-cooled or cooled with air. This offering is packaged in a gift box or gift bag.
Coffee of the Month packages – Give the gift of a different coffee each month for three, six, or twelve months!
Gift cards, mug and coffee packages can also be found at HollerRoast.com.
Notes from Jack
This year, Nicole has added the easy option for anyone with a list of folks they would like to see gifted. She will take your spreadsheet, hand-write your cards and send your entire list a coffee gift for a flat fee. Find out more on the Holiday Coffee page at Holler Roast. That’s pretty neat.
Don’t forget to use your MSB discount when ordering if you are a member and if not now is a great time to join the MSB.
