What is Iced Coffee?

Iced coffee is ground coffee that is usually brewed in a coffee maker, French press or whatever machinery you fancy, and poured over ice.  Brew time is within minutes and usually only good for a few hours.

What is Cold Brew?

What is cold brew coffee you ask? It is just that, coffee that you brew cold. Instead of grinding your beans and measuring your coffee into your coffee pot. Coffee is then poured into a pitcher and brewed for 14-24 hour. Next you filter out the grinds and store it for up to two weeks.  But our cold brew coffee packs make it convenient and easy so you don’t need a filter! No more coffee grounds in your cold brew!

Our packs are pre-measured and pre-filled so all that you have to do is follow our simple instructions below and you’ll have yourself some easy-peezy-lemon squeezy cold coffee! Fun fact, all of our coffees come with the cold brew option. Yes please, I will have some Highlander Grogg cold brew!

How to Brew with our packs:

  • Add 4 cups of water to a pitcher
  • Drop two cold brew packs into the pitcher
  • Place pitcher either on the counter with a lid or in the refrigerator for 18- 24 hours (depending on strength you prefer)
  • Once brewed, remove and dispose of the cold brew packs
  • This cold brew is now a concentrate. Pour over ice and add 2 parts water. (optionally you could add 3 cups water to dilute the entire pitcher now)
  • Place lid back on cold brew and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. 
  • Add cream or whatever you like and enjoy your summertime drink!

It’s that simple, y’all! Be patient when attempting cold brewing, but it’s so worth it in the long run!
