What is Cold Brew?
Cold Brew is usually portrayed as iced coffee because that’s how it is being commercialised, especially by the big coffee chains, but it is so much more than that. You can drink cold brew with ice, there is nothing wrong with that, but do not be confused with other types of iced coffee, such as regular brewed coffee with ice.
The real difference of this brewing method is the water temperature in which the extraction of coffee takes place. While regular coffee methods use near boiling temperatures to quickly extract the properties of coffee, Cold Brewing exchanges time for temperature, taking from 4 up to 24 hours depending on the method to make a full batch.
In general, Cold Brew has a sweeter, less acidic taste profile, has a higher amount of anti-oxidants, and has far more versatile consumption options relative to regular coffee due to the stability of its body and flavour profile.
Can I drink it hot?
Absolutely - a major benefit of our coffee is the flexible consumption available. You can drink it hot, cold, black, with milk, even as a smoothie or cocktail! For a hot coffee, simply add hot water or milk, with a 2-3 part water / milk to coffee ratio and you are good to go! Check out our Instagram for regular recipe ideas and updates.
How do you source and roast your coffee?
Our coffee is sourced and roasted by our local partners, right here in Hong Kong. The coffee is sourced through Sucafina, a global network of coffee professionals who help source specialty grade coffee across the globe, with a central focus on sustainability and shared value.
What is the shelf life?
To ensure you enjoy the freshest and best tasting coffee, we brew the day before your delivery, and do not add any preservatives of any kind. If stored in the refrigerator and unopened, our coffee will stay fresh for up to 14 days. (Pro tip: pour some Dawn Cold Brew into an ice cube tray if you're worried about getting through it all in time!)
Do you have different strength levels?
We have designed our coffee to provide an easy and flexible consumption experience: simply mix with 2 to 3 parts water / milk to enjoy a well balanced great tasting 8oz / 240mL standard cup of coffee tailored to your desired strength and coffee drink.
That said, we understand that everyone has different taste preferences, and we want to allow for that. As a result, we are looking to produce an extra strong version of our coffee. Please reach out to us and let us know if this is something that you would be interested in so we can plan accordingly!
