Pure Project Coffee Release

Feb 28, 2020

With freshly emptied barrels of our most talked about release of the year, we decided to capture its essence in our next coffee release. Corylus Barrel Aged Mexico El Jaguar is a sensory journey allowing Mexico El Jaguar Siltepec coffee from Chiapas to show its notes of vanilla and spices, and with added depth from Corylus, a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout with hazelnut, cacao, and coffee. After months of aging in barrels, the coffee transforms into this beautiful beast showcasing notes of dark chocolate, peanut brittle, toasted marshmallow, and bourbon sweetness.

12 ounce bags of this coffee will be available at both Pure Project tasting rooms starting Friday, February 28th for $22 each, while supplies last!

If we still have bags by Monday, March 2nd, then they will also be available for purchase online starting Monday,
