Coffee and Bourbon In action 

Coffee and Bourbon In action 

Well, it has been about three weeks, and the coffee bourbon has been poured, poured, tested, shared with some whiskey loving friends and tasted some more. It was a good experiment. The coffee bourbon came out a lot more mellow than it went in. The Jim Beam bourbon I used was harsh, unrefined. and this experiment made it a lot nicer to drink. The great thing is this will get better over time. Thre first batch will not be finished when the second is ready and I will have to bottles of coffee whiskey.  Here is what I am going to do for the next batch and other notes.

  • Make an Irish coffee with the current batch
  • I will use a better bourbon/whiskey, not sure which one yet, I need to do some testing
  • I am going to use a slightly finer grind of coffee, possible Ethiopian in origin for a better flavor.
  • I will keep the ratio about the same.
  • There is Caffein in the whiskey that goes straight to your head.
  • Goes well with coffee
