Coffee is one of those ever-versatile beer augments that can contribute flavor and depth to a wide array of different beer styles. While coffee is perhaps most commonly added to darker brews, lighter ales provide a balanced and refreshing backdrop for the rich aromas and roasty flavors of everyone’s favorite bean.
