Event Alert – Fonté Coffee Ireland’s Unique Coffee Cupping Evening with Founder Paul Odom

Fonté Coffee Ireland organises an exclusive tasting experience with Founder Paul Odom. Participants will have a chance to experience the flavours of bourbon barrel conditioned coffee.

The Fonté team has taken one of their favourite Brasils which is noted for its caramel, nougat, layered profile and conditioned in 12-year-old Heaven Hill Kentucky Bourbon barrels. These barrels have also aged one of the world’s most sought-after wood aged stouts for a minimum of 12 months, giving the beans a balanced profile of bourbon, malt and chocolate.
