In a nutshell (or coffee bean) cold brew is created by steeping coarsely ground beans in room temperature water for up to 20 hours. All good things come to those who patiently wait for this process, which not only renders the brew less acidic but also entices the essential oils and flavors to come out to play. If that isn’t enough for you, then get this: the caffeine content is four times more than that of a regular old pot of brew. Sold yet?
Denis Vaden, the owner and enabler jokes that he is creating addicts as we all line up to fill up our cups. The cafe’s modern décor, comprised of dark, textured wood and ever so slightly hipster colours are a far cry from its humble origins in Denis’ garage which was occupied by only two bags of coffee beans and one lone scale.
Their advertising is also supported by a neat idea called Pay It Forward. You get a “postcard” and write to a friend, including a coffee on it. Then pop the card onto the designated cork board on the wall, take a snap and post it on Facebook with your friend tagged in it. They can then go to State 5, present the photo and in return for their efforts, be rewarded with the glorious coffee that you ‘got’ them.
I am hoping to be tagged in a few photos soon!
