    The Coffee: Experience a true original with our "This One's for the Phonies" whiskey barrel-aged coffee. We start with exceptional single-origin beans from Guatemala, then carefully age them for 30 days in premium bourbon barrels. This unique process imbues the green beans with hints of caramel, vanilla, and oak before they're roasted to order. The result is a rich, full-bodied cup with sophisticated notes and a lingering smoky finish.

    The Inspiration: J.D. Salinger's iconic novel, The Catcher in the Rye, follows the refreshingly honest and anti-conformist Holden Caulfield. Much like how Holden railed against "phonies," our barrel-aged beans reject conventionality. Aged in genuine whiskey casks, these Guatemalan beans absorb the essence of their barrel-lined slumber before boldly emerging as a one-of-a-kind coffee experience - the ultimate brew for those who embrace authenticity.
