BOURBON COFFEE

INTRODUCTION TO BOURBON COFFEE

Bourbon coffee is an exquisite coffee flavored with bourbon, sweetened with brown sugar, and topped with whipped cream. It will undoubtedly be a delight for any bourbon drinkers! Essentially, it is Irish coffee brewed with bourbon.

This coffee has a strong flavor; therefore, you must like bourbon whiskey to like it! If you don't want your coffee black, you may add some cream to it. Whipped cream is used in this recipe. However, remember that the whipped cream will gradually dissolve into the coffee, changing the flavor of pure black coffee.

Always choose an excellent medium roast coffee with a rich, full flavor that might stand up and enhance the bourbon as the basis for your coffee. Since it's usually preferable to brew coffee strong, it's vital to select a medium roast like Bourbon Pecan; it has the rich caramel notes of the 100% pure Arabica Beans without taking on the bitterness that a complete dark roast could; roasted with care to pair up with your Bourbon coffee. 

Try to select a robustly flavorful Bourbon for this coffee. A good bourbon should have an excellent robust taste, touches of citrus and spice, and just the right amount of sweetness to bring out the caramel in the coffee.

Winter is a perfect time for hot coffee. It keeps you warm while allowing you to relax and watch your favorite Series. However, hot coffee is not significant in heat. How can you have all of the comforts without the heat? Let's hunt for a perfect cold coffee with a kick. If you like a more robust flavor, make Bourbon Coffee a cold brew by leaving it at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours.

Cold Brew Bourbon Coffee Recipe

While Bourbon Coffee is strong and bitter in flavor, Cold Brew Bourbon is smoother and a bit less strong in taste. The cold brewing process reduces the acid content while retaining volatile oils that ordinarily evaporate during the hot cycle. We consider cold brew coffee's tastes to be more subtle and delicate.

We recommend a medium roast blend coffee to make a cold brew. You may even use a single-origin coffee. The best is having your beans coarsely ground before being combined with a batch of cold water and steeping overnight to create your cold brew.

Now that your cold brew is prepared let's make the cold brew Bourbon coffee.

Here's everything you'll need to prepare a cold brew Bourbon coffee-

  • Brown sugar, heat to dissolve
  • Orange juice

How to Prepare Cold-brew Bourbon Coffee-
