Three To Try: Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

January 27, 2017

I don’t care if it’s technically winter. This warm spate of weather has us thinking of cold brew coffee already (we made our first batch of Kyoto-style cold brew last week), and we’ve got a particular taste for nitro cold brew coffee. Nitro cold brew – like nitro-dispensed beer – is smooth and creamy. Nitro bubbles are super small, especially compared to carbon dioxide, so they create a pillowy foam. I love watching the bubbles cascading in a freshly poured nitro coffee. Here are three you can try!

1. Crimson Cup – Crimson Cup serves nitro cold brew at their Clintonville and Upper Arlington coffee shops. They craft it from different roasts, and even do seasonal flavored versions, like the holiday hopped nitro or the cocoa nibs.

2. Hoof Hearted Brewing – Hoof Hearted Brewing is also getting into the coffee business. They’re roasting beans that you’ll find at the brewpub and at local stores. Now they’ve started canning their cold brew with nitrogen. Find it at the brewpub, Market Italian Village, Hills Market downtown, Ohio Taproom, and other spots. It’s ridiculously smooth.

3. Rockmill Tavern – I know I just hailed the breakfast sandwich at Rockmill Tavern, but it’s worth noting that they have their house cold brew on nitro tap, too. Remember, they open early during the week for coffee, snacks, and sandwiches!
