Cold Brew Coffee, 2022

Cold brew coffee experimentation, April 2020

Two years ago, when the pandemic had shut down the airports in Costa Rica and we had no clue how long that would last, we wondered how the artisans and the farmers who supplied our recently opened Authentica shops would fare. We had to ask ourselves what we were going to do with the roughly 7,000 pounds of coffee beans we had contracted to buy from that year’s harvest. The most obvious move was to start roasting in the USA, so we could deliver to customers who had bought from us in Costa Rica and wanted to continue buying.

Cold brew coffee was a brief experiment at the time, but with sufficiently robust results to convince us that when travelers returned we would offer samples. The time has come.

  1. Hi Crist, I am trying to find out some information about the coffee pouches you handed out to students at Cornell this year. My daughter is a student there and when I picked her up last week, she gave me a small unmarked coffee pouch with a valve. Since it is unmarked, I am wondering what is inside and what is the best way to use it. She is under the impression that it is something very distinct. Thanks so much!
