For some, coffee is a means to an end—a way to deliver a stimulant to shake off morning grogginess and make work meetings slightly more tolerable. For others, coffee is as varied and enjoyable as a fine wine. But not everyone has the time to learn how to prepare the perfect cup of specialty coffee, especially when trying to pull off the precise measurements and grind size of cold brew.
If you fall into the latter category, a new subscription box available from Cratejoy might be for you. It’s the Cold Brew Club, and as the name implies, its mission is to satisfy your cold brew coffee cravings. Each box contains a 3-liter pouch of concentrated cold brew that, when diluted with a 2:1 ratio of water, makes 9 liters, or 38 cups, of delicious cold brew coffee. This all equals out to around $1.60 per cup, which is going to be far below what you're paying at a café.
The coffee concentrate is shipped cold and packed in dry ice, ready to store in your refrigerator. Every one to two months, the recipe is changed, so you’re guaranteed a different—though no less satisfying—cup of 100 percent arabica coffee every time. The blend is organic, fair trade, carbon neutral, gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and soy-free.
The subscription is $62 per month and renews automatically, with the first box shipping within two business days of the order being placed. You can find the Cold Brew Club on Cratejoy.
