Cold Brew Recipe

We’re excited to be entering that time in the Midwest when iced coffee and cold brew tastes so refreshing! We’re sharing our favorite way you can enjoy cold brew at home (and a scaled down version of our in-house method). We hope you enjoy our recommendations!

Our favorite coffees to use for Cold Brew (sometimes referred to as toddy, or iced coffee) are our Costa Rican Tarrazu or Columbian Supremo.

Benefits of Cold Brew include up to 67% less acidity than traditionally brewed coffee methods. It’s sweeter and smoother – Because the grounds aren’t exposed to high temps, cold brewed methods usually produce more flavorful and less bitter coffee.

Fun fact: We recently partnered with YouTuber Lynette Yoder, and she shared her experience with trying our Cold Brew recipe in her kitchen. You can watch here:
