Cold Brew Updates
Going into fall, the demand for cold brew bottles has exceeded our expectations and continued to grow. We’re doing some maintenance and upgrades on our brewing & bottling setup this week. As a result, cold brew (both on tap & in bottles) will be unavailable for the next few days. If all goes well, it’ll make a return at the tap on Thursday, and bottles back on Friday.
The photo above is yellow bourbon growing at Hacienda Santa Rosa back when we visited at the beginning of the year; it’s the same farm that also produces Buena Esperanza, one of our favorite coffees this year. When visiting the farm, Silas, our green buyer, noticed that they were growing a small number of yellow bourbon trees. Yellow is a mutation of the regular bourbon, which normally produces a red fruit when ripe; in this instance, the fruit matures to a deep yellow-orange. We bought a lot of yellow bourbon last year from El Bosque , and it was a very floral, interesting coffee. We asked Santa Rosa to pick & mill their yellow bourbon seperately this year. We got just 3 bags of this coffee in.
When we re-launch cold brew later this week, we’ll be serving the Yellow Bourbon microlot. Bottles will be available!
