REVOLUTION COFFEE ROASTERS + TONEWOOD BREWING team up to bring you something truly special. We collaborated to carefully select a coffee bean that would not only be a suitable ingredient for a stout, but would also brew a delicious cup of coffee. This Guatemalan micro-lot was the perfect fit. We lightly roasted the beans at Revolution and supplied them to Tonewood. There, they added the beans to an imperial stout that had been aged for 10 months in bourbon barrels. The result is a proud imperial stout with a smooth coffee flavor.
Luckily, we secured a small amount of beans that were not destined to be floating in beer. We are happy to bring the comfort and joy of these unique flavors to you for a limited time this winter season.
About the Farm
Cultivated at the foot of Volcan de Fuego (fire volcano), you would not be wrong to think this coffee comes from a precarious place. Volcan de Fuego has erupted as recently as the summer of 2018. But despite this dangerous neighbor, Finca Santa Elisa Pachup has all the hallmarks of a coffee paradise. The 1250-acre estate also has its own wet mill, which allows for all aspects of the post-harvest process to be meticulously handled in one place. Multiple picks are made throughout the harvest to ensure only ripe cherries are processed. The cherry is depulped, fermented for 18 to 24 hours and washed in canals to separate out less dense beans. The washed coffee is slowly dried on patios and raised beds and then finished in mechanical driers to precisely reach a stable moisture for export.
