The awareness and availability of cold brew and nitro cold brew coffee have skyrocketed as the summer heat has kicked into high gear. Rather than enjoying a steaming hot cup of coffee at work during the summer, New York City employees are looking for something cooler. And it isn’t a traditional iced-coffee.
Cold brew coffee is that something much cooler. It offers a smoother and less acidic taste than traditionally brewed coffee. While each coffee brewer has their own way of creating cold brew coffee, cold brew is, in general, made from coffee grounds steeped in room-temperature or cold water for at least 12 hours. As with any type of coffee, the type and quality of the coffee bean and the roasting process impacts the taste of cold brew coffee.
Nitro cold brew coffee takes traditional cold brew coffee one step further by adding nitrogen to create a creamy and smooth beverage. Nitrogen has smaller bubbles than carbon dioxide, which is used in most carbonated beverages, and creates a different texture or “thicker mouthfeel” to the beverage. The nitrogen also impacts how quickly the caffeine is absorbed. Some New York City cold brew drinkers may experience a faster energy boost from the caffeine.
Since drinking coffee away from home is more common than consuming it at home, it is important to offer employees a reason to get their cold brew coffee at the office instead of running out to a coffee shop. The easiest way to do that is to create a coffee house feel in your New York City break room and offer cold brew coffee in addition to hot coffee. Not only will it make it easier for your employees to get an energy boost or grab a ready-to-drink cold brew coffee, but it will also create a place to relax and recharge.
