what is cold brew coffee?
Cold Brew Coffee is exactly what it sounds like; coffee brewed cold. Although cold brew is relatively new on the beverage shelf, it's deep roots date back centuries to ancient Japan and 18th century French soldiers. The two most common methods of cold brewing are the Kyoto style slow drip and the age old steeping method, both of which require a 12-24 hour brewing time.
We've studied these traditional methods and through our own innovative process, bring you Canada's finest quality Cold Brew Coffee. We create a superior product using beer technology to handcraft speciality coffee. Sourcing locally roasted direct trade coffee beans, we brew for 18 hours in cold water, using no heat. Without any additives, the end result is a naturally sweet, bright and bold coffee that lacks the bitterness and acidity you'll find in a traditional iced coffee.
Our Commitment to Responsibly sourced, Quality coffee
We are committed to sourcing the best quality, responsibly sourced coffee that is sustainably grown. Our signature cold brew is a blend of both Ethiopian and Brazilian regions, locally roasted by Hale Coffee. Our beans are responsibly sourced using direct trade policies to support our commitment to outstanding coffee, growing community and improving the lives of every person involved the process.
Direct trade is a term used by roasters who buy straight from the growers and farmers, cutting out traditional middleman buyers and sellers as well as the organizations that control certifications such as fair trade. Direct trade models build mutually beneficial and respectful relationships with individual producers or cooperatives in each individual country. This provides more control over the quality of the coffee, our social impact as well as environmental concerns.
Why is Cold Brew Coffee better?
Cold Brew Coffee is the all-natural solution to artificial, sugar packed beverages that no longer resonate with educated consumers. Traditional iced coffee is generally hot coffee poured over ice or chilled then served. Both methods cause the coffee to lose its flavours and become watered down and bitter. Cold Brew coffee provides an all-natural elevated cold coffee experience. Clean energy with no preservatives or added flavours. Most enjoy it black, but we don't mess with coffee routines. That's a bad idea.
