Episode 1: Collaboration is King
Episode 2: Cupping at One Village Coffee
Well, it finally happened. After months of plotting and planning and collaborating the Victory Brewing Co. and One Village Coffee project, here and after referred to as Victory Village, is finally being released to the public.
This coffee beer is not like your typical coffee beer in that we (Victory + One Village) decided to steer clear of the heavier stout or porter style and really expose the coffe flavor through a British style Brown Ale. The result: A coffee beer like no other. You have to taste it to believe it. It’s a beautiful, and uniquely balanced, combination of coffee and beer. Not too much beer to muddle the coffee flavor, not too much coffee to make an ‘adult’ Starbucks product.
It’s been a pleasure to work with the One Village team and are proud to support their unique vision of creating a ‘not-just-for-profit’ roasting house that supports the communities of their suppliers in developing countries around the globe.
