Happy Monday! Some new coffee things happening: Clear coffee is the talk of the town, Starbucks Seattle Roastery introduces new cold brew mocktails, and a Kickstarter campaign launched for the first flat-bottomed pourover coffee dripper with an adjustable brew flow.
The internet is buzzing about Clear Coffee – billed as the first colorless coffee in the world. The flagship product of CLR CFF, Clear Coffee is the brainchild of two brothers, coffee addicts themselves, who wanted a way around those annoying stains that plague heavy coffee drinkers. The super unique ready-to-drink coffee is made from high quality Arabica coffee beans and pure water, contains the same amount of caffeine as an average cup of regular coffee, and is free from preservatives, artificial flavors, stabilizers, sugar or any other sweeteners. Clear Coffee is available at the website at CLRCFF.com.
On the heels of the popularity of the Melrose – a coffee “mocktail” version of a Manhattan made with a Cold Brew coffee base, bitters, and a maraschino cherry – two new Cold Brew mocktails are being introduced at the Starbucks Seattle Roastery: the Emerald City Mule and the Casacara Lemon Sour. The Emerald City Mule is made with Starbucks Reserve Cold Brew and ginger beer infused with burnt cinnamon syrup and fresh lemon then garnished with an apple slice, while the Casacara Lemon Sour consists of Starbucks Reserve Cold Brew shaken with Woodinville Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup and fresh lemon and then finished with a luxardo cherry and Cascara sugar. Both are currently available at the Coffee Experience Bar at the Seattle Roastery.
If you’ve ever wanted more control or precision, or just a better cup of coffee, out of your pourover coffee, then the December Coffee Dripper is for you. They recently launched a Kickstarter campaign and have quickly gained popularity, reaching over 2X their initial goal in about a week.
