Forged cold brew coffee
Annie LaForge brews Cold Brew Coffee in Franklin County. Cold Brew Coffee offers a flavor profile not found in traditional hot brewed coffee. When high temperature water has contact with the oils on coffee beans it can cause bitterness and additional acidity. Since CBC is "brewed" cold, you get to taste the full flavor potential of the bean while also being smooth without the bitterness. While being delicious is reason enough switch to cold brew, CBC boasts other benefits as well! With the markedly lower acidity, it is easier on the stomach than coffee brewed with hot water. CBC also has a higher caffeine content than traditional brew. It's a win-win for everyone.
