Roast & Toast’s Bour-Burundi

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | Sept. 10, 2022

For the under-caffeinated among us, Roast & Toast is piping-hot coffee mecca, and this autumn, you’ll find us cozied up with a mug of their Bour-Burundi brew. Inspired by the flavor combo of coffee spiked with buttery bourbon, this variety got off the ground when a pairing dinner at Palette Bistro—the beanery’s sister restaurant—introduced the team at Roast & Toast to Bardstown Bourbon Company (Kentucky). The result: Fresh Burundi coffee beans are barrel-aged for 30 days in the distillery’s spirit-soaked casks. From there, each batch is meticulously roasted at the café’s downtown Petoskey space for a perfectly caramelized coffee with a medium palette and woody finish. Replace your alarm with this heady joe, and you might just leave the house on time! Enjoy a cup at the café, or pick up whole and roasted Bour-Burundi beans (12 oz) for $19.95 at Roast & Toast’s downtown Petoskey and McLaren Medical Building locations. (231) 347-7767.
