Which Roast Is The Best?
The question is about the same as asking which wine is the best? Coffee roasting and blending is as complex as winemaking with as varied results. You do you and figure out what roast works best for your tastebuds.
Which Milk Should You Use?
As we brew exquisite coffee drinks at home, we want to make sure that the coffee is paired with better dairy products to bring out the finest flavor. Putting thought into the selection of our milk products, including consideration of the type, origin, and the flavor is an excellent step toward experiencing the perfect cup of joe.
Cold Brew or Nitro Brew?
Nitro cold brew is made the same way that regular cold brew is. The delivery of the two beverages is different. After the brewing has finished and the coffee is kegged, nitrogen is infused into the cold brew. The pressurizing process the cold brew with nitrogen allows for the body of the coffee drink to come out much smoother than a typical cold brew. Heat tends to pull the most intense and aromatic chemicals out of coffee beans, which gives the slightly bitter taste of hot-brewed coffee. Because cold brew is made with cool water, it has a slightly sweeter taste, a bit milder, and less acidic than your average iced cup. The aroma and flavor aren’t as intense, but it will still taste just as fresh. Come out and be social by our nitro coffee bar, or find a cozy nook in our window-side seating area. We invite you to taste our freshly brewed coffee at Caffe Strega!
