To be brave, you must brew bold!
By now, you will have heard of cold brew. Well this time around, we thought we'd try something different.
Introducing Bold Brew (Barrel-Aged Cold Brew)
We've teamed up with Pirate's Grog Rum to create a brand new beverage, strictly for your brewing pleasure. This is not just cold brew with a twist but a concoction that will trick your taste buds. A drink you'll feel just as comfortable going to bed with as you will, waking up to. As our head roaster would say, it's cheeky!
And you can be assured, it came about through no mean feat....
The combined efforts of three continents and years of waiting bring this elixir to your table. Let's talk you through how it's made.
Grade-1 Ethiopian Aricha coffee beans are rested in their raw state, inside a white American oak barrel. A barrel that once housed a limited edition, Central American rum for 13 years, Pirate’s Grog No.13.
Once rested, the flavoursome beans are roasted with a profile designed specifically for Bold Brew. The coffee is coarsely ground and submerged in filtered water for several hours and diluted to taste. The high temperatures of the roasting drum remove all alcohol content but none of that raucous rum flavour, making an exceptional brew that is badass, bodacious and bold.
Much like the two single-origin Cold Brew options we serve in-store, Bold Brew is made and bottled by hand at our roastery in Mile End.
You can pick up a 750ml bottle of Bold Brew at any one of our London stores. Enjoy in-store with friends. Or take one home as a gift. £12.50 for a bottle. Limited stock available each week.
