What is cold brew coffee and why drink it?
Cold brew is coffee extracted using time rather than temperature. Due to reduced temperatures, all varieties of STIR Cold Brew are 60 - 65% less acidic than hot coffee that’s brewed with nearly 200 degree water. STIR Cold Brew is an amazingly flavorful and exceptionally smooth coffee that retains its depth of flavor. STIR Cold Brew uses fresh, locally roasted coffee from Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company (See "A Note From Our Roaster" at the bottom of this page) soaked only in great-tasting premium filtered water in a cool and controlled environment. Every small batch of STIR’s Cold Brew product line is carefully measured after many weeks of testing to calculate the optimal water to coffee ratio and brewing length; thus creating the perfect ready-to-drink coffee in each and every bottle. We pride ourselves in serving only premium local coffee with superb quality control and consistency in our products.

Why Cold Brew?
Cold brewing coffee is quite simply soaking coffee grounds in great tasting filtered water for an extended time of 12 to 24 hours generally. This is in contrast to "hot brew" coffee which is usually made with a drip brewer using 200-degree temperature water. Let's look at the science of the brew to get at why we would even want to cold brew coffee in the first place.
Are Cold Brew Blends Different?
Particular coffee beans used for particular blends such a good espresso are exactly that. Particular. Some coffee bean varieties don't work well blended with other beans. On the other hand, those same beans may work perfectly if the beans are roasted at a lighter or darker roast level and blended in particular percentages. The beans selected for STIR Cold Brew blend are no different. We developed this blend to be perfectly balanced for use in cold brewing (even when adding flavor), leading to a smooth full flavored coffee that is, because of the brewing method, also less acidic.
Excellent Coffee = Excelled Science
There are three basic types of acids found in fresh roasted ground coffee. These are amino acids, aliphatic acids and phenolic acids. The first two generally lead to sweet and sour tastes respectively, but in terms of concentration, phenolic acids account for the highest percentage by volume of acids found in coffee. This group of acids, which include quinic, caffeic and chlorogenic acids, are responsible for bitter tastes. And that is where cold brewing coffee comes in. As it turns out, when you soak coffee grounds in room temperature or refrigerated water it dissolves much less of SOME of the phenolic acids than hot water does; so you end up with a very full flavored, much less acidic beverage. The effect is a coffee that is much "smoother" to drink than its hot-brewed counterpart. The good news, for folks on-the-go drinking cold brew, is that the caffeine level is equivalent to hot-brewed coffee.
