ALLIE & LENNIE
Allie & Lennie rotates with fresh harvests from our producer network but will always tell stories of my grandmother’s kitchens. It showcases those crops that taste like the pies, cookies, and the treats that I will forever associate with a cup of coffee.
CarmoCoffees is a powerhouse in Brazilian coffees. Representing multiple producers in the Carmo de Minas region, they provide support on multiple fronts from growing, harvesting and processing to community initiatives ranging from housing, education, and health. This particular lot comes from CarmoCoffees co-founder, Luiz Paulo Dias Pereira and his Fazenda Senhor Niquinho farm. It is part of the CriaCarmo project in which we pay a 10 cent per pound premium that goes to help at-risk youth throughout the growing region.
I think Allie & Lennie would both love this beautiful honey-processed yellow bourbon. It opens with so much creamy sweet nuttiness that is somewhere between peanut butter and brittle. There is a wave of chocolate that helps balance out the intricate apple and cooked pear acidity. The finish is long and full of caramel and toffee notes.
