Cold Brew.

Cold brew coffee is crafted by slowly steeping cold water through coffee over a long time period. This results in a smooth highly concentrated coffee perfect for those hot summer days or whenever you just don’t feel like a hot beverage.

Cold brew results in less acidity and less bitterness while staying fresher for longer.  while espresso is packed with stunning flavour notes we love, when it cools the flavour compounds change and degrade.

Our team at Insomnia serve a delicious version of Cold brew crafted by our friends at Harpoon Cold brew. this is served via a Nitrogen charged keg and tap, this results in a creamy smooth drink with cascading bubbles typically found in a Guinness.

Head to our store if you are after creating cold brew at home.

Coffee Flavours and their reasons

What flavour can you find in your morning coffee? We once tasted coffee which was best described as Strawberry jam served on burnt toast. When you are after the perfect cup of coffee, many different natural and Man-made influences will come together to create your brew.

Each cup of coffee can have a unique flavour profile, this could be due to the roasting, processing, blending or the natural terroir of where the coffee has grown.

Although the term isn’t used too often by coffee drinkers, the terroir describes how the growing conditions of a region, or even more specifically an individual farm or plot, affect a coffee’s characteristics.

For coffee, this could include things like:

  • soil type and mineral make up
  • the average temperature in the region
  • the amount of sunlight each plant receives or doesn’t receive.
  • the elevation of the coffee farms and each given coffee tree.
  • annual rainfall
