Following a late-aughties popularity boom cold brewed coffee has become a summer essential right alongside shades and sunscreen, and a huge hit among coffee fans every spring as soon as temps surpass 70 degrees.
Part of the appeal is the utility- a cup of cold brew will take you places, with a caffeine kick that’s enough to shake off even the most brutal of summertime hot-apartment brain fog.
However, taken a step further, cold brew can be transcendently delicious, and Upper Left’s Cold Brew Blend takes you a step in that direction. We have tested countless roasts to come up with a blend rich with the chocolatey tones of a low elevation Brazil, the big fruit of a naturally processed Ethiopian, and the smoothness of a mild Latin American.
Our blend takes the guesswork out of chasing these notes- shops and home users alike should expect success across a wide variety of grinding, steeping, and straining processes, and can expect this coffee to hold it’s own against ice, dairy, or alternative milks.
