This week I was invited by Starbucks to a special tasting event of the Nitro Cold Brew.
It's no secret that the Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew has become a favorite drinks overnight. But why is that? Here are 7 secrets behind the Nitro Cold Brew:
1. It is poured vertically
There's a reason that the Nitro Cold Brew is poured into a mug that's just standing on the counter. In contrast, beer is held diagonally under the tap to prevent the formation of air bubbles - we want to have these "bubbles"!
2. It is served in a transparent cup
The Nitro Cold Brew is always served in a transparent cup, so that the cascade of nitrogen "Bubbles" is particularly good.
3. No ice
The Nitro Cold Brew is served without ice to further enhance the velvety soft texture.
4. Low calories
When people try Nitro Cold Brew, they love the creamy taste and assume that it's high in calories. But that's not true! A tall Nitro Cold Brew has only 4 calories and 0 grams of sugar.
5. It is unsweetened
The Nitro Cold Brew is served unsweetened to highlight the flavour created by the Cold Brew process. If you still want to enjoy the Nitro Cold Brew a bit sweeter, you can fall back on the new variants with cold milk foam.
6. It has no contact with hot water
Cold Brew is made using a special brewing method, whereby coffee does not come into contact with hot water. Cold water and time replace the heat to extract the flavour.
7. It is slowly steeped
The Nitro Cold Brew is handcrafted. The coffee is gently and slowly steeped in cold water for more than 20 hours.
NITRO COLD BREW WITH COLD FOAM New!
The Nitro Cold Brew is poured for this new variant
over a velvety, cold milk foam.
This creates a layer where coffee and foam meet.
NITRO COLD BREW WITH CARAMEL COLD FOAM New!
Like the Nitro Cold Brew with Cold Foam, the Nitro Cold Brew is poured
over cold milk foam even with this fine novelty.
Then soft caramel is added to ensure a slightly sweet finish.
