We don't really know the answer to this question but they are very pretty and certainly the only coffee we know of that is supplied in genuine wooden barrels not sacks. The barrels are handmade in the washing stations and are available as smaller 15KG barrels or larger 70KG barrels. Here's a short video of our barrels being opened in readiness for the 'Halcyon' limited edition roast.
These little guys make great ornaments for a coffee lover. In the future we'll probably clear some space and run a draw on our website for subscribers to win their own barrel. Make sure you're subscribed to our newsletter.
Do let us know if you have more info on these barrels.
