Dave is a maker and blacksmith based out of Vancouver Island BC. He works entirely with hand tools through each step as he believes traditional tools and methods are just as useful, if not more reliable, than modern technology. Each piece is handmade, every knife Dave creates is entirely unique - from the raw steel he chooses, to the marks and grooves left from the hammering and hardening process.

IT'S NOT YOUR MORNING COFFEE! Whiskey Barrel Coffee is a one of a kind experience that brings coffee back to it roots. Working with Espresso Smith and owner/founder Tal Fishman was one of the best experiences we have ever had with a client. Tal truly has such passion for his art and it really shows in this captivating visual piece! Here is a little bit of insight into Whiskey Barrel Coffee:
"Just one sip of Whiskey Barrel Coffee and you'll taste the captivating full flavor of aged bourbon whiskey with the subtle richness of coffee. Artisan inspired, Whiskey Barrel Coffee was created from our founder Tal Fishman's interest in smooth, smoky, bourbon whiskey and passion for fine coffee.
We roast Whiskey Barrel Coffee in small batches, in our vintage European air roaster, utilizing old school techniques at our Colorado facility. Our Whiskey Barrel Coffee Barrels are individually hand dipped in wax to seal in the extraordinary flavor. Each bottle is then labeled with the batch and bottle numbers hand written on the label.
We believe Whiskey Barrel Coffee is a truly unique product and a coffee experience like no other, enjoy!
