Studies show that retail sales of cold brew coffee grew about 460 percent from 2015 to 2017[1] and every year cold brew coffee sales continue to grow at impressive rates. Cold brew is also a very profitable beverage for businesses, making it an excellent addition to your offerings.

However, offering cold brew coffee poses a challenge for foodservice and business operators because brewing is time consuming, space-intensive, and messy. Farmer Brothers provides easy-to-use cold brew solutions for businesses that are effortless and mess-free.

How is it brewed?
Cold brew coffee is steeped in cold water for about 12-24 hours, resulting in a sweeter, smoother, less-acidic, less-bitter, and more caffeinated cup of coffee. This has made it a very popular beverage among millennials and increasingly so among other age groups. However, this is not a practical or scalable method for most foodservice businesses. Learn more about our innovative cold brew methods below.
