How We Brew 

People ask us all the time how we brew our chocolatey sweet, yet smoky cold brew. Here's a little vid showing you the ins and outs of our brew process!

 
 

How we brew it...

It all starts with freshly roasted beans from Tinker Coffee Co—our signature ZINGblend of 45% Nicaraguan, 35% Ethiopian, and 20% Sumatran. This blend creates a nice balance of chocolatey, fruity, and smoky flavor that never gets boring. Our unique brew process yields the juiciest texture we've found, and we bottle and distribute weekly to make sure our vendors always have the freshest cold brew coffee.

After we grind all the coffee, we mix the grounds and water in our hand-sewn cotton muslin filters. This is an older pic, we brew in 55 gallon brew barrels now—see below.

After we brew, we bottle it up! We built "the Death Star" bottling machine after looking at several other bottling machines and then just making our own, DIY style. Food-grade materials with a 2x4 frame, manual sliding manifold with bottom-filling tubes, six-at-a-time skids.
