What is cold brewing?
Cold brewing is a process in which coffee is brewed by soaking fresh roasted grounds in cold water for 18 hours. After steeping, the coffee is filtered to separate the grounds and silt from the liquid.
What makes cold brew so special?
Cold brewing produces a totally unique (and, in our opinion, superior) taste to heat brewing. When heat is used to brew iced coffee, it releases acids and oils that are intensified when the coffee is cooled. The result is a bitter brew with a short shelf life. Cold brewing, on the other hand, produces an intense but smooth flavour that mixes perfectly with milk and lasts up to a month in the refrigerator.
How many drinks does one bottle make?
It makes up to 10 drinks, if you mix 50ml of concentrate with 100ml of milk or water.
How do you make iced coffee from cold brew?
We suggest mixing one part concentrate with two parts milk (skim, whole, soy, almond, etc.) or cold water and pouring over ice. Add sugar syrup to taste.
Can you make hot coffee with cold brew?
Yes. It works best mixed with milk. To make one serving, heat 3/4 to 1 cup milk in a saucepan or microwave to just below boiling, then add concentrate (about 1/4 cup) to taste.
How long does cold brew last?
It does contain some residual oils from the coffee beans. Depending on how long you have left your bottle to sit and the temperature of your fridge, you may notice some oils when you pour your cold brew.
Do you make a decaf version?
Not yet, but we are working on it. Check back for updates.
