The honest truth is, most Americans are accustomed to drinking less than fresh coffee.
That changes here.
To make cold BREW coffee, coarse-ground coffee is steeped in cold water for at least 12 hours. The longer the coffee sits, the stronger the flavor because cold brew uses time instead of heat to extract the coffee's oils, sugars and caffeine. The end result is generally less acidic and bitter than iced coffee. Our new Duffle Bags (cold brew pouches) make it simple and easy to enjoy a fresh cup of cold brew at home.
-B.R.E.W. Coffee Duffle Bag
-20oz B.R.E.W. Tumbler preferred (any 20oz bottle, cup or mug will do)
-room temperature or cold filtered water
Step 1: Place Duffle Bag in 20oz container
Step 2: Fill container with water
Step 3: Place lid on container and put in fridge
Step 4: Let sit for a minimum of 12 hours (longer for stronger; we prefer 24 hours)
Step 5: Enjoy as is, on ice or with any additives you prefer
It can get confusing when you start to see or hear some of the other terms to describe the level at which coffee beans are roasted, such as Vienna or Full City Roast.
The First Crack
During the roasting process, when the beans begin to change colors from green to yellow to brown, the beans begin to make a popping noise called: The First Crack. Stopping the roast around that first crack or shortly after is typically what people refer to as a light roast, because the beans are a lighter brown and roasted for less time.
The Second Crack
If you continue to roast longer, the beans will change to a darker brown and in most cases they will make another distinctly different popping noise: The Second Crack. Right around that second crack is what is considered a dark roast. If you roast much beyond the second crack, you risk burning the beans. Right in between the first crack and second crack is where the medium roast falls on the spectrum. There is a noticeable difference in the flavors each roast level brings out.

If you are like us, you may have thought that espresso is a type of coffee: it's not!
This is a very common misconception. Espresso is a method of brewing which is made by forcing pressurized hot water through very finely ground coffee beans. Some coffees taste better as espresso than others, but any coffee can be finely ground and made as espresso. If you would like to try any of our coffees as an espresso, please send us a message with your order to let us know and we can adjust the grind setting for your coffee.
We recommend our Night Stalkers.
We recommend starting with a 16:1 coffee to water ratio for your drip coffee. This is a great place to start and then adjust up or down based on how strong you like your coffee. It may make it a little easier to say 1 or 2 tablespoons of BREW coffee per 6oz of water. Different coffees vary in density based on type of coffee and roast level. One tablespoon of one coffee may not come out as strong as one tablespoon of another, which is why we recommend weighing your grounds if you have the ability to do so.
Freshly roasted coffee just tastes better! After coffee is roasted, it gives off CO2. For the first 2 to 3 days after roasting, it is best to let the beans de-gas (release CO2). After the de-gas period, your coffee is at its very freshest and best to consume within 2 to 3 weeks. Coffee doesn't technically have a shelf life, so it is ok to consume beyond that "freshest" period but it does gradually lose its flavor over time, so don't wait too long!
