“Blue” one of our three Primary Series Coffee occupies the space of Cold Brew Blend at Blueprint Coffee. We use this coffee to make our in-house cold brew. Its flavor profile features rich, chocolatey sweetness, a heavy body, and balanced acidity.

We received many requests over the past few years for the “best coffee for making cold brew.” While we used Tektōn for years and felt it did a fantastic job, it’s hard to ignore the requests for something obviously marketed for cold brewing. Plus, we gained the ability to really profile Blue for cold brew and Tektōn for hot, filter brewing. Where we typically want slightly more acidity in Tektōn, we prefer more sweetness in heaviness in our cold brew.

To brew cold, follow these simple steps using a vessel of your choosing.
