ART#10 Coffee Milk Amber Ale
It’s the second beer brewed with coffee in the history of Browar Stu Mostów. This time it’s Amber Ale with lactose, roasted cocoa beans and exceptional coffee supplied by the Czarny Deszcz coffee roaster from Wrocław. Our cooperation has coincided with the triumph of Filip Kucharczyk from Czarny Deszcz in the World Aeropress Championship. We have used exactly the same coffee variety, Colombia Rio Negro, to brew our beer as Filip used to win the championship. The reason for it is the coffee’s unique sensory profile: grapefruit, green grapes, sour hard candy and creamy mouthfeel.
About the coffee
Yellow Bourbon is a natural cultivar of the Red Bourbon and Amarelo de Botacuto varieties. Selected by French botanists from Yemen coffee varieties, Bourbon was transported onto Brazilian plantations where it developed its unique sensory profile. These coffee beans come from 10 farmers living in the vicinity of the Rio Negro town, the Huila region, south-west Columbia, where volcanic soil, an average temperature of 20-25°C and 160 cm of annual rainfall ensure the best conditions to grow cocoa plants. What accounts for its uniqueness is the story. On the harvest day, farmer leave selected ripe coffee cherries for about 18 to 24 hours. What happens next is coffee is washed and dried for 12-18 days.
