Alto Cold Brew is on a mission to help people elevate the craft of cold brew. If you are looking to elevate the craft of cold brew in your shop, then ask yourself these questions:
Specialty Cold Brew occurs wherever the innovation, focus on quality, community and seed-to-cup mentality of specialty coffee is applied to elevate the craft of cold brew.
To elevate the craft of cold brew beyond its current state, we will need to champion that same dedication to quality and spirit of cooperation.
Events and competitions are a great way to build community, and raise the awareness and appreciation for a new craft.
Even if you never try our filters, we encourage you to innovate and experiment with your ingredients, processes, offerings and equipment!
People shy away from things that they cannot afford, do not understand and cannot master; so anything that makes specialty coffee more approachable to your customers is a step in the right direction.
Build brand loyalty, improve customer satisfaction, expand your reach and share your brand by starting a growler program with your new specialty cold brew.
Specialty cold brew lends itself very well to making your own mocktail ingredients—especially simple syrups and nut milks!
It is time to look for opportunities to expand the category of craft cold brew and take its place alongside filter coffee and espresso in specialty coffee.
Why not offer this same level of choice for cold brew?
Because cold brew is so easy to make and store, there is no reason to not offer a few variations of cold brew.
For whatever the reason they aren't offering cold brew yet, coffee shops should seriously consider putting it on their menus. As I mentioned before, cold brew is the entry-point to specialty coffee for many people, including myself.
From there I fell in love with third wave, light-roasted filter coffee and espresso. I cannot tell you how many people I run into that share this similar experience. For many people: cold brew is the entry-point to specialty coffee.
CoffeeFest was unreal. We've been to tons of TNT's in support of our local coffee community over the past year but this was next level. Huge show floor, hundreds of exhibitors, hundreds more competitors and thousands of attendees who love coffee as much as we do.
We designed our filters to be stronger and more reliable than the alternatives, but we found a few unexpected benefits! The cold brew tasted better because it was not steeping in wet paper and there was no clean-up because the entire thing is disposable.
The Alto Starter Kit might be the best investment you ever make in your business. Investing $100 in brewing equipment and $2,500 on coffee can generate $13,000 in sales!
