One of the ways you can tell summer is coming: we break out our Cold Brew Coffee Maker.
Cold brew is not iced coffee.
It's extracted at room temperature, using ice water. Because there isn't any heat used, there's no flavour deterioration.
The resulting brew is like an elixir: liquer-like, intense.
As you can see, it looks like a bit like a science experiment, or a back-woods moonshine contraption. What happens is: ice water drips, drop-by-drop with the help of gravity only, through our ground coffee......and eventually seeps through to the carafe at the bottom. It takes 24 hours for this unit to make a carafe full.
Come into the store and try a cup!
We sell a few different Cold Brew Systems for home that we've experimented with.
They work just like our store model, only smaller and better looking :)
Come into the store, we'll show
you how they work.
For coffee, we suggest our
Ethiopian Blue Nile Yrgecheffe
(in the African section),
our Peruvian Cafe Feminino
(South American Section),
our Indian Mysore
(in our Asian section), and
our El Salvador Las Lajas
(in the South American section.)
