Cold Brew Coffee
Team Offbeat | 20 Jun

With this scorching summer weather, a hot cup of coffee may well be the last thing on your mind. Perhaps you could be tempted by a refreshing cold brew coffee instead? Cold brew coffee, what’s it all about?

As a coffee shop owner, it’s important to stay up-to-date with trends and give your customers what they want. Cold brew coffee is not only popular with millennials who crave innovation with their coffee but it’s also a great product to help combat the lower summer coffee sales. With an increasing popularity for artisan produce, the cold brew coffee movement is re-energising coffee shops.

A centuries-old brewing method, coffee is soaked in room temperature water for up to 24 hours to produce a concentrated brew which can then be diluted with water. The coffee is surprisingly refreshing and sweet, highlighting the coffee’s natural chocolate, floral and fruity notes. Additionally, due to the milder brewing process, there’s no bitterness or acidity that you sometimes get from regularly brewed coffee.

Once you have the cold brew concentrate, there are a vast array of recipe options. Drink it diluted with water for a fresh morning coffee, add sparkling water for a summer-spritzer, a dash of Kahlua for a cocktail or even create ice-lollies and ice-creams… now we’re talking!

Taking it one step further is nitro-coffee, an infusion of cold brew coffee and nitrogen to give a Guinness-like, smooth and foamy texture. The draught nitro cold brew comes straight out of a beer-like tap and has a velvety foam top, perfect for these warm summer days.
