‘Caixa Da Fruta’ which translates as "Fruit Box" is a blend of made from mainly from one particular area called Carmo De Cachoeira.
Carmo De Cachoeira, Minas Gerais
Bold & Boozy
Unmistakably unique, with vanilla and caramel notes from the barrel and chocolate and fruit from the coffee. Perhaps not a morning coffee, although you do you, it is definitely an after-dinner brew accompanied by or perhaps in your favourite dessert.
Prior to roasting, we age the coffee in an old Bourbon barrel, where it soaks up all of the flavours and aromas left behind in the wood. We tend to choose a low altitude coffee for Midnight Harvest, as they are more porous. This helps it to taste even more delicious once it's out of its barrel.
Midnight Harvest is really unlike anything else we offer. Already intense coffees are made even more so by their time in the barrel, giving you an end result that'll really knock your socks off.
18g in, 40g out, extracted over 30(±3) seconds.
35g coffee, 150ml water, brewed in 1:30. Dilute to taste with 150-200ml water.
What is barrel aged coffee?
Back in November 2020, we conceived the idea of barrel ageing some of our specialty coffee as a one-off single run.
Little did we know, there’d be such a demand for the resulting coffee, that we’d soon be welcoming it as a staple offering in our arsenal. We've learned a lot since Midnight Harvest first launched, and it's a really fascinating twist on the roasting process. Click below to read more about how this little idea has turned into one of our most beloved coffees!
Everyone's setup is unique, but here are some good starting points.
