Cold Brew Coffee

With summer almost here, we wanted to share our favorite cold brew coffee recipe so you could make it at home.  If you’ve never tried cold brew coffee before, you will find it smooth.  The hardest part about making any cold brew coffee recipe is waiting for it to brew.  We really enjoy cold brew made with Ladro Espresso roast, but you can make it with any blend that you prefer.  Choosing a coffee blend for your first cold brewing adventure is a great place to start. Your first batch of cold brew coffee with have all the flavors you’ve come to love in your morning cup. As you continue to enjoy cold brew coffee, you might try cold brewing with micro-lot coffees. Micro-lot cold brew is incredible because the brewing process intensifies the fruit and floral notes in a way that heat brewing coffee cannot.  When cold brewing micro-lot coffees, you will definitely experience the flavors outlined in the coffee tasting notes.

We hope you try the Caffe Ladro cold brew coffee recipe.  For a summer sweet treat, add a drizzle or a shot of your cold brew concentrate to ice cream to make an Affogato (typically ice cream with a shot of espresso poured over).  We like to take our cold brew to go in a Mason jar with a Cuppow lid.
