It can be dangerous to buy coffee online. You need to know what to look for in a high-quality coffee, especially when you are shopping for cold brew.
One of the biggest dangers of buying anything online is not being able to see or sample what you’re buying ahead of time. Of course, that small inconvenience hasn’t stopped anyone from enjoying shopping from their home. But what about if you want to buy coffee online?
With any kind of food or beverage, you run a much bigger risk because you can’t exactly return something if you don’t like the way it tastes. If you already ate it, there’s nothing to return anyway.
So, how can you be certain you are buying something you’ll actually want when it arrives? It’s actually not as difficult as you’d think.
Pay attention to the process.
The only way that you can be confident you are getting a high-grade product when you buy coffee online is to understand the process it goes through. Where does the coffee come from? What are the farming practices?
There are more things to think about depending on whether you’re buying beans or a cold brew. Let’s focus specifically on cold brew right now because that is the most common place for people to try to trick quality.
If there are any preservatives or additives for flavor, this is a red flag whether you’re in a store or you buy coffee online. You want to look for the least amount of ingredients possible. You don’t need your coffee going through labs and getting mixed with things you can’t even pronounce.
Added sugar is also a red flag, and many cold brew coffees you can buy online have A LOT of added sugar. There’s a very simple combination of ingredients you should look for: coffee and filtered water.
The search to buy coffee online can be the hardest part. Even some of the cold brews that seem like they check all the boxes actually don’t work with great coffee beans. But that’s a lot to dive into.
Let us save you some time. Quivr’s True Cold Brew Nitro Coffee is made with the best processes, the best coffee, and the best practices. We use ethically sourced beans from Barrington Coffee Roasters.
There are two components found in this blend. The primary component is the super chocolatey Cafe Conquista from the Sinay-Neves family in Bahia, Brazil. The family also runs the non-profit organization, Socially Conscious Coffee.
The second component is from the El Salvadorean farm, Finca Las Victorias. The Magaña-Menendez family has cultivated this coffee for over 100 years which has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
These coffees get careful care and attention from these families and our own as well. In the States, the beans go through an exacting cold brew process to get exactly the result we’re looking for. Then, immediately after brewing, the coffee is nitrogen-infused to preserve it’s quality.
The nitrogen takes up negative space in the can so that oxygen will not degrade the beverage through oxidation before you get a chance to enjoy it.
When you pop open a can of Quivr, you’re drinking the freshest and best possible cold brew you can find.
