Roasters Spotlight: Stay Cool with Cold Brew this Summer

What's the best coffee origin when it comes to Cold Brew? Bali, Honduras, Rwanda... while all of these beans are amazing, we're going with Ethiopian on this one.

Let's chat cold brew real quick before we hop into why we pick our Ethiopian as the front runner.

Cold Brew, by definition, is simply the process of steeping coffee grounds in room temperature or cold water for an extended period of time. The result -  a coffee with a much lower acidity, enhanced smoothness, greater sweetness, and generally little to no bitter component.

The taste profile of our Ethiopian Natural gives way to intense juicy sweetness, and clean aftertaste. This light to medium roast puts the taste of strawberry on the forefront, followed with a hint of milk chocolate...can you ask for anything more?

For me, bliss comes in adding a few drops of our sweet Turmeric and Almond flavoring, stir, and enjoy. Cheers!  - Craig
