Drink Spotlight: Starbucks® Cold Brew Coffee Pitcher Packs

 

 

Starbucks® Cold Brew Coffee
Refreshingly bold and super-smooth, with chocolate and light citrus notes.

Some like it cold: smooth, rich and naturally sweet coffee designed to brew in cool water.

The crafting of great taste begins with this blend of 100% arabica Latin American and African ground coffees, packaged in pitcher packs specially designed by Starbucks for brewing in cool water. It's easy to prepare the cold brew for slow-steeping in the fridge for 24 hours. Then enjoy the unsweetened, refreshingly bold and super-smooth flavor that's worth waiting for.

This purchase includes four pitcher packs, which together make twelve 8 fl oz servings.

 

How to Brew

It’s easy:

Prep time: 3 minutes

Steep time: 24 hours

1. Drop 2 pitcher packs into a 48 fl oz (or larger) pitcher. Add 4 cups cold, filtered water to pitcher and cover. It’s normal for pitcher packs to float.
2. Steep coffee in fridge for 24 hours.
3. Remove pitcher packs gently. Add 3 cups cold, filtered water to pitcher.
4. Serve in a tall glass filled halfway with ice. Or skip the ice for a bolder taste.

Each pitcher makes six 8 fl oz servings and will stay fresh in your fridge for up to 7 days.

Starbucks Launching Cold Brew Coffee?

 

Cold Brew Coffee has become very trendy lately.  It was only a matter of time before Starbucks tossed their hat in the ring.  It would appear the time has come although it may be for a limited time only and offered to a limited geographic area.

A recent article from the Daily Mail talks about this limited roll out taking place in the Boston area.  Depending on how the launch goes I could see this becoming a staple product in all Starbucks locations, especially during the summer months when Cold Brew is more popular.

For more information on Cold Brew coffee check out our Cold Brew Coffee Trend Report.

Coffee Spotlight: Starbucks Seasonal Brezza Blend

 

This new light-bodied coffee is as easygoing as its Italian translation would suggest. A medium-roast coffee with notes of fresh herbs and sweet lemon. Brezza is a juicy, elegant, cheerful blend-wonderful hot or iced.

 

The blend includes three different coffees that add their own elements to the summer taste—from sunny Colombia, Papua New Guinea with a juicy taste; and East Africa where the herbal notes are added. The product’s name also syncs with the summer time—the name Brezza means “breeze” in Italian.

 

Starbucks Brezza Blend is supposed to be used for making traditional coffee as well as for making iced beverages, where coffee with sweet lemony notes pairs with lemon, orange, caramel, and golden raisins.
