Best Coffee for Cold Brew

Panama SHB Boquete Berlina Estate

Berlina Estate is an 84 hectare farm located in the Boquete District of northern Panama. The farm has been owned by the Tzanetatos family since 1997, however, it gets its name from the wife of the previous owner who was from Berlin, Germany.

When it comes to their coffee, Clemente ensures that all cherries that are picked for Berlina Estate’s production are 100% ripe. They hand separate any cherries that don’t meet their standards, to guarantee the highest quality and intensity of flavor.

The Boquete is as silky as it is sweet. To us, this cold brew tastes almost exactly like a chocolate covered maraschino cherry.

Best Tea for Cold Brew

Root Beer

Rooibos and licorice root come together to create a fun blend reminiscent of root beer soda. The classic taste of summer on the boardwalk. 

This is magical on nitro – all the flavor of root beer with none of the sugar.  It’s also caffeine free, so you can enjoy drinking it all day long!

Mango Black

You’ll be living on island time with the juicy flavor of tropical mango with Ceylon black tea.  We think this cold brew is perfect for a warm afternoon when you need a delicious caffeine boost.

Hibiscus Berry

This cold brew tea is sweet, tangy and the hibiscus steeps strong and fast.  This is a favorite in the summer, so don’t miss out!  The bright red color makes for exciting specialty drinks.

One of the most famous teas from China. This green tea has it all and then some when cold brewed! Characteristically nutty and buttery Longjing makes for a mellow green iced tea.  Bonus – it’s a great option for the health conscious! 

We love Dragonwell and so many of our other pure teas on ice.  Golden Yunnan, Jasmine Green, and Organic Peppermint are some of our other favorites!
