Coffee cold brewed? Ever tried it? It’s super delish and the flavour difference between hot and cold brewed coffee is quite immense. Just ask our Market newcomers, Bellerophon Cold Brew.
Bellerophon was founded in Canberra and is handcrafted coffee using only the highest grade specialty coffee. These guys brew their coffee cold, deliver it cold and serve it cold. So what exactly is cold brew coffee? Simply put, it is ground coffee steeped in cold water and strained. Iced coffee is generally brewed hot and then poured over ice – the process is fast and the coffee has to be brewed stronger than standard coffee to make up for the dilution caused by the ice – they are also often bitter to drink. Cold brew coffee on the other hand takes 12-24 hours to steep but has a far gentler infusion process which produces a naturally sweeter drink.
Bellerophon has a close partnership with a local café which has allowed them to use roasts designed especially for cold brew to achieve a cup with unrivalled sweetness and complexity. They implement a three stage filtering process using high grade commercial filters commonly seen in the wine and beer industry, which produces clarity and a mouth feel not typically seen in traditional cold brew.
