Mexican Coffee Liqueur
Copenhagen Distillery in a four leaf clover
There’s a new coffee liqueur in town. The brand new liqueur from Copenhagen Distillery is a succesful result of a four clover collaboration. Bo Blindkilde, friend of Master Distiller at Copenhagen Distillery Henrik Brinks, owns the coffee plantagen Pura Vida in Mexico (www.cafepuravida.com).
Bo and Henrik merged Bo’s coffee beans with one of bartender Sune Urth’s coffee liqueur prototypes and adjusted the recipe to compliment Bo’s Beans. Kurt from Kontra Kaffe (picture below) who sells Bo’s coffee beans in Denmark offered to supply a professional coffee brewing apparatus for the course and to roast Bo’s beans in accordance with the specific demands for the liqueur.
The coffee beans are roasted in two different ways, a very light roast to preserve the light and fruity notes and a medium dark roast to bring out the bitter qualities of the coffee. The amount of sugar used is kept to an absolute minimum. Instead the four clover team of Bo, Henrik, Sune and Kontra Kaffe has added organic lemon peel and green anise to perfect the balance of taste and aroma in the liqueur.
We tested the liqueur in the “Mexican New Year’s Resolution” cocktail and the result was great. This coffee liqueur is an amazing product!
