Our friends at Coopers Cask Coffee have been hard at work importing and roasting coffee beans. Cooper Cask learned that over the course of several years, having tried a number of varieties from all over the world. I remember, quite distinctly, being handed a cup of freshly brewed coffee, and then enjoying the time he took researching the tasting profile, origin, and the best ways to prepare and enjoy it. I was hooked, and ever since then, we’ve been enjoying great coffee. A purchase through links supports this site review. A Cooper is the name of the age old profession of building wooden casks, or barrels. There are many myths about coffee, like dark roasts will wake me up and light roasts are weak or how coffee is coffee, just add cream and sugar. But, it is more than just buying coffee beans online, much more.
Once a bean is roasted it has a relative short freshness period, usually a week. After which the flavors start to degrade and oxidize. Grinding coffee beans accelerates this process even faster. That is why Cooper Cask only roasts what is ordered and fresh. The roast date is on every package to show this. The coffee is not roasted in a massive plant where they are bagged and sitting in warehouses and retail shelves for many weeks or months. Why sacrifice a great cup of coffee for convenience? The K-cups have made it very convenient and this creates a huge sacrifice to quality. Just like you wouldn’t buy a loaf of bread that was sitting for weeks or let it sit in your cabinet or counter for weeks on end.Cooper Cask have taken this coffee to the next level, barrel aging. Just like wine, bourbon, rum and whiskey are barrel aged to complement the flavors, barrel aging the unroasted coffee beans in used barrels has enhance and intensify the natural flavor of the beans. With skillfully selected a beans the flavor notes and subtleties will best match and complement the flavors imparted by the aromas left behind in the empty barrels, for this reason I would choose the Whiskey & Rum Barrel Aged Coffee Box Set with Mug 12oz Whole Bean from Cooper Cask every time.
Each Trio Box includes one 4oz bag (12oz total) of each UPRISING COFFEE, BATTLE CRY COFFEE and THOMAS TEW RUM COFFEE, whole bean.UPRISING COFFEEBarrel Aged: Uprising (Sons of Liberty Whiskey): Stout style American whiskeyCoffee Beans: Sumatra LintongTasting Notes: Woody Earth, tobacco, tropical fruits, vanilla, caramelThe Sumatra coffee bean is from the sub-region of Lintong and was chosen because of the complementary tasting notes of woody earth and mild sweet tobacco, with a hint of ripe tropical fruits. When aged in whiskey barrels, the flavor and aroma of the bean is enhanced with the sweetness of vanilla and caramel from the whiskey. When tasted, you get the enriched coffee experience with a very long whiskey finish. Excellent as an espresso. BATTLE CRY COFFEEBarrel Aged: Battle Cry (Sons of Liberty Whiskey) Rye American whiskeyCoffee Beans: Ethiopian Dry ProcessedTasting Notes: Bright and clean cup with a slight acidic spice, fruited notes of peach jam and strawberries, touch of sweetness of red raw honey and dutch chocolateThis coffee uses the dry process by means of drying out the cherries under the sun on raised beds instead of the traditional wet processed (cherries stripped off after picking). The dry process intensifies the flavor of the cherry directly into the coffee bean. The flavor profile has a very bright and clean cup with accents of peaches, strawberries, raw red honey, and a touch of dutch chocolate. The Battle Cry whiskey is distilled from a Belgium yeast style beer with grains of malted rye and honey malt. The whiskey complements the coffee with bright spicy flavors and an intense floral nose that is slightly sweet. Enjoy the intense aromas and the complex flavors of this barrel aged coffee! THOMAS TEW RUM COFFEEBarrel Aged: Thomas Tew Rum Barrel from Newport, RICoffee Beans: Rwanda Single OriginTasting Notes: Caramelized sugar, red raisins, molasses, rich cocoa, baking spices, vanilla and oakThe perfect pairing of the natural dark toffee and molasses of the coffee with the caramel sweetness and slight spiciness of the rum. You will find this coffee to be incredibly smooth. The aroma after a fresh grind gives way to an amazing caramelized sugar and all-spice with a hint of golden raisins. The flavors in the brewed cup continues but deepens into a rich cocoa complexity with notes of spice, vanilla, and oak come into play. An espresso shot intensifies the sweet toffee and spice with a rich cocoa and oak structure.

- After 4 minutes then plunge once and enjoy. Don’t leave the coffee sitting in the french press too long or it may become bitter.
AUTO DRIP COFFEE MACHINE
- Fill your coffee maker’s reservoir with water.
- Use 2 tbsp of beans per 6-8 oz of water, ground fine. You may use more or less depending on how strong you like your coffee. Coffee beans ground too coarse will create a very light coffee with less flavor.
- Once the machine is done brewing try not to leave the coffee pot on the heater. This will ‘cook’ the coffee and give it a burnt taste over time.
- POUR AND ENJOY!

My Review of Whiskey & Rum Barrel Aged Coffee Box Set with Mug 12oz Whole Bean
I had ordered from Amazon and it was not as good as advertised. By complaining, Cooper’s delivered a new batch to me and a single origin coffee sampler. Wow what a difference in taste!. This is great fresh coffee. I would definitely order again but I would order directly from Coopers. I am staying away from Amazon for coffee since I have never received a fresh bag of coffee. A fantastic product that I would definitely order again!

For bourbon lovers, it is a no brainer. This won’t likely be for everyone, the concentrated flavor of the barrels these were aged in comes on strong and even a bit harsh or boozy. I loved it, my wife only enjoyed one of three and she’s a bourbon drinker, so your mileage may vary. Get the flavor of choice you won’t regret it and you’ll crave it. Highly recommended!
