Our new range of Cold Brew coffee is here!

Our new range of Cold Brew coffee is here!

While demand for coffee in the warmer months remains steady, the rise in temperature means many coffee drinkers want a cold, refreshing option too. For months, we trialled different recipes, proportions and steeping temperatures, using our Estate blend and are excited to finally be able to share with you what we think,  is the perfect coffee refreshment for a hot day.

“We’ve played around with Cold Brew in the past but hadn’t made it a major focus. We decided to change that last year and work on something that was delicious and refreshing” says Research and Development Consultant at Veneziano Coffee Roasters, Pete Licata.

During the development process, we worked closely with Coffee Keg, contract beverage manufacturer in Geelong. This allowed us to find the right proportions with our recipes, fine tune a lot of technical details and ensure the end product tasted great.

Our new Cold Brew Coffee range includes two flavours based on our popular Estate blend – Cold Brew Straight Up and Cold Brew Blood Orange. Estate is our all rounder blend, a combination of Colombian and Brazilian coffees, bringing a well-rounded, balanced flavour.

The Cold Brew Straight Up is light, has a nice presence of semi-sweet chocolate, and caramel notes, as well as a little bit of zest and acidity. “Making unflavoured Cold Brew is as simple as being able to try different recipes, proportions, and steeping times. You can play around with these elements to find what works best. That’s exactly what we did, and we’re really pleased with the end result” says Pete.

For those seeking something a little different, Cold Brew Blood Orange aims to balance three separate flavour profiles; blood orange, tonic and Cold Brew. “It combines the coffee flavour with the brightness and citric component that comes with blood orange, as well as the sweetness and bitterness from the tonic. It’s a really nice blend of all these factors and makes for a really refreshing, sparkling drink,” continues Pete.

To celebrate the launch of our Cold Brew range, we’ve created a variety of signature drinks using our Cold Brew Straight Up as the base. The signature drinks all look to tell a story and are inspired by the flavours and aromas of coffee.

Among the signature drinks will be the Cold Brew Portello and Gingerbread Latte. The Gingerbread Latte aims to remind customers of Christmas, while the Cold Brew Portello mixes that classic Portello taste with fresh grapefruit.

Selected signature drinks are available for tasting at our Veneziano Cafes and recipe cards can be viewed here.

Cold Brew Blood Orange and Cold Brew Straight Up will be available to purchase separately in our cafes and sold online as 4-packs ($16) from January 15th 2020.
