Navigating the Waters of Still Cold Brew Coffee and Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

Two glasses of cold brew coffee are placed on a large rock beside a flowing river. The glass on the left contains nitro cold brew coffee, while the glass on the right holds still cold brew coffee. The scene is set against a serene backdrop of a forest and a river cascading over rocks, with the early morning sun casting a warm glow over the landscape.
Still and Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

Hey there, cold brew enthusiast! You've ventured into the realm of Fifty5 Rivers, where our passion for cold brew coffee runs as deep as the rivers we're named after. Today, we're guiding you through the currents of still versus nitro cold brew. Whether you're a seasoned cold brew coffee drinker or just starting out, we're here to help you navigate your way.

Still Cold Brew Coffee: The Steady Stream

Our still cold brew coffee is a testament to patience and precision. In our home brew kit, we recommend steeping your grounds for 18 hours in room temperature water. If you decide to put the jar in the refrigerator to brew, this process will take a little longer. This method ensures a smooth, rich cold brew that's low in acidity but high in flavor and 1.x times the caffeine of hot brewed coffee. Cold brew coffee is a versatile, straightforward, and absolutely refreshing drink—a perfect daily companion that can be enjoyed pure or personalized to your taste.

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee: The Rushing Rapids

By infusing our cold brew coffee with nitrogen, an inert gas known for its extremely low reactivity to other substances, we create a visually stunning, creamy cold brew coffee with a silky texture that cascades like a waterfall in your cup. This infusion process not only adds a rich, frothy head but also enhances the cold brew’s natural sweetness, reducing the need for added sugars. Importantly, it does not add any additional caffeine to your cold brew coffee beyond what is already present. It should be highlighted that we have not identified any reliable studies demonstrating that nitro coffee is absorbed by the body more rapidly.

The Ripple: Still vs. Nitro

Here's how the two compare:

  • Texture: Still cold brew coffee is crisp and clean, while nitro cold brew coffee offers a creamy, almost stout-like experience.

  • Taste: Both brews are crafted to minimize bitterness and acidity, but nitro brings out a sweeter profile without any additives.

  • Experience: Still cold brew coffee is your everyday, versatile cold brew. Nitro, with its dramatic pour and creamy texture, offers a special cold brew coffee experience that's both a treat to watch and to drink.

At Fifty5 Rivers, we celebrate the diversity of cold brew coffee experiences. Choosing between still and nitro cold brew depends on what kind of adventure you're seeking. Are you looking for a journey with a classic cold brew experience, or are you ready to navigate the exciting rush of nitro? We're here to provide you with the best of both worlds, crafted with the utmost care and dedication to quality. Here's to discovering your perfect brew, one sip at a time.
