Whiskey infused coffee beans

Here’s a great combo, some smart chaps got some coffee beans and aged them inside bourbon barrels, over time, the oaky flavor would infused into the beans thus giving it a whiskey like aroma.  These beans are roasted and then packaged fresh and sold as Whiskey Barrel Coffee.  Yummy stuff, check it out here.

Whiskey infused coffee beans

18 grams

For the pass year I’ve learnt to appreciate a good cup of coffee. Now everywhere I go I would try and source the best place for a great cup. So I am in Hong Kong and obviously would love to try some coffee. That’s where I ended at 18 grams, a little coffee shop tucked in a smallish corner in Causeway Bay.

My reference coffee is the Latte and that’s what I ordered.

I must say, living in Melbourne which yields some of the best coffee ever, this coffee falls a bit short. I believe it’s the milk the did not do the trick, it’s not as smooth and creamy as I normally find in a good Latte. Still, this coffee is still better than the average Starbucks or Pacific Coffee that’s littered around Hong Kong. I would give it a 3 out of 5. There’s plenty of space for improvement.
