Cold Coffee CAN Hit the Spot!

Ever have one of those days where the work pace takes over + your morning coffee sits + sits…until it’s no longer warm? Have you been tempted to take a sip? Believe it or not, there are conditions where cold coffee can hit the spot….but this shouldn’t be one of them!

Real cold brewed coffee is not coffee that has cooled down….nor is it coffee on ice. Cold brewed coffee starts with the proper brewing process. Fresh coffee beans are ground down + then steeped in cold, filtered water for 24 hours. Yes! 24 Hours!! The extended brewing time allows for the flavour of the coffee to be extracted from the beans leaving bitter compounds behind. As a result, cold brewed coffee is sweeter + the process produces an extremely smooth, flavourful cup of highly caffeinated coffee.

Cold Brewed Coffee can be served over ice, or steamed until hot. When the cold brew is steamed, it activates the oils in the coffee + pours as creamy foam with an equally creamy, unique flavour. Flavours can also be added creating some delicious variations like Caramel Truffle, Tuxedo(coconut), French Vanilla + more. We think Cold Brewed Coffee taste exceptional + hope you do too!

Next time, grab a cup of cold brewed coffee on your way to the office. You can take comfort in the fact that not only should it be cold, it will taste great too!
