It’s Brewed in Cold Water

Hence the name.  Cold brew coffee is actually steeped in room temperature or chilled water and never touches hot water.  This causes a much slower flavor extraction which contributes to the smooth flavor of cold brew coffee.

It Takes at Least 12 Hours to Make

Cold brew coffee is made by steeping coarse ground coffee in large paper coffee filters in water for 12-18 hours and then diluted to taste with water.  We make fresh batches over night so they are ready to be served each morning!

It’s HandCrafted

You won’t find our cold brew in a can.  It’s handcrafted by our own baristas to ensure it’s fresh!  That’s why there is limited availability based on what we make each day.  Come get it while it’s hot!  Errr….cold, we mean.

It’s not the same as Iced Coffee

Iced coffee is essentially normally brewed coffee that is chilled and then poured over ice.  It still has the same flavor as hot coffee and might taste more acidic or even bitter compared to cold brew coffee.

Cold Brew can be Customized

You can add flavored syrups or chocolate or caramel to cold brew.  It’s rich smooth flavor tastes great with vanilla, coconut or hazelnut flavors.  You can also add dairy or dairy alternatives if you prefer!

So now that you know what it is, then you have no reason not to try it!   You’ll be pleasantly surprised.  Stop by one of our many locations today!  We think you’ll have a new favorite craving!
