Cold brew is making its mark in restaurants, foodservice operations, and grocery stores across the country, getting recognized for its smooth, creamy, chocolatey texture and low acidity.
Going beyond the beverage, a number of popular brands have recently launched cold brew products, including cold brew coffee ice cream and chocolate bars. Flavoring cold brew with hazelnut and lavender is also slated to make an impact on foodservice in the coming year.
- Because cold brew is easy to prepare in bulk and can be consumed at any time of day, it’s an excellent beverage to keep chilled and serve to guests who are checking in.
- Popular coffee providers, like entegra’s supply partner Starbucks, now offer bottled cold brew beverages. Consider adding these to your coolers or in-house C-store so guests can enjoy cold brew at their leisure.
