Topic: Wooden Barrels? (16 msgs / 230 lines)
1) From: Treshell
So what's with the wooden barrels that all Jamaican Blue Mountain must by
law be shipped in?  Seems like it is asking for problems of mold. Etc etc
etc?/
Anyone have any of the barrels?

I have one.  It sits next to my roaster and looks cool.
It's all about marketing.  Jamaica has kinda let the ball down the past few 
years though.  JBM is taking a back seat to many other 'as good, or better' 
specialty coffees out there with 'as good, or better marketing'.  'Juan 
Valdez' is another example of very effective branding.

fair I did a while back.

So, do you want a burro or a barrel?  You don't have to feed or clean up 
after the barrel.

I have two JBM Barrels, one at home and one at the Kafe. The one at the Kafe
sits by the USRC. The one at home next to one of my desks. Don't throw
anything but both are used as trash cans! (but yes, cool looking trash cans)
At least the one at the Kafe gets mostly coffee bean type trash (sort outs,
bounce outs on the floor etc.:-)

Get back to me in a few months:>  Seriously if someone is importing it into
the US they must have the barrels as you can not ship it out of Jamaica
unless it is in the barrels.  Check Kenneth Davids web site and put Jamaica
in the search block  I know he list some cupped last year.  Go to those
places if they brought it in then they have the barrels.

I bought the first one from Tom for a very reasonable amount. Don't ask what
that was, it was around 7 years ago! The 2nd one cost a lot more, came with
the Kafe;-)

Now if I could just find that old keg that grandma used to attach to her 
rocking chair to age white lightning!!!

That barrel was most likely a "charred" oak barrel. I know where to get
those *new* in as small as one or 2 gallons. Note that they are sold empty!

Ps. For those who haven't had the pleasure - homemade whiskey, when
properly made, is without doubt the best in the world.

New Kegs available in 2, 5, 15 and 30 gallon sizes, charred, plain or
furniture grade available from www.lehmans.com    Kidron, Ohio.  Rather
pricey but are quality white oak construction.  Also sell "railroad kegs" in
2, 5 and 30 gallon sizes paraffin lined interior, varnished exterior.  Very
attractive and useful.
