We offer our pairing box of freshly roasted Mahembe Coffee beans combined with a very special spirit made from the same coffee exactly. Mahembe is one of our favourite coffees out of Rwanda year after year.
From this coffee with flavors of cocoa, nutmeg and sweet cherry, Josef Farthofer creates two different spirits in his distillery in Austria. Next to distilling a coffee spirit he created a coffee liqueur from the same coffee. These two spirits highlight very different aspects of the flavor complexity of these outstanding beans.
Collaboration Josef Farthofer, Austria and THE BARN. Facilitated by Freimeisterkollektiv, Berlin.
