Koko Buni to Return this December

Creature Comforts is bringing back Koko Buni (6.5%), a winter limited-release Milk Porter with toasted coconut, cocoa nibs, and coffee, this December. Koko Buni will be available on draft and in 6-packs of 12-ounce cans onsite in the tasting room as well as in the Athens and Atlanta markets.

Koko Buni’s flavors are rich and velvety – perfect for cooler days and evenings. As with all our offerings, a key characteristic of Koko Buni is balance in flavor. None of the flavors are overpowering or fatiguing on the palate.

We sourced the coffee and a portion of the cocoa nibs used in the beer locally. The coffee is an Ethiopian blend from 1000 Faces Coffee and the cocoa nibs are Ecuadorian from local bean-to-bar chocolatier, Condor Chocolates, and Haitian from Woodstock, IL-based Ethereal Confections. In addition, 1000 Faces will offer the coffee used in the milk porter as a limited-edition Koko Buni coffee blend.

Continuing in our effort to frequently work with local partners, we worked with Athens artist David Hale on the can design. The design won CNBC’s Battle of the Beer Labels competition in April 2016.

The coconut and Ethiopian coffee used in making the beer inspired its name. “Koko” translates to coconut in Papiamento, a language commonly used in the Caribbean. “Buni” is derived from the word for coffee in Amharic, the primary language found in Ethiopia.

Koko Buni will be available on draft and in cans onsite at the brewery beginning in mid-December and in the Athens and Atlanta markets shortly following the onsite release.
