The Rise of the “Coffice”

With many coffee shops and cafes now providing free wifi as standard we have seen a rise in individuals working from coffee shops, so much so that a new term has been coined to describe the use of coffee shops as offices. The “Coffice” is defined in the urban dictionary as “A coffee shop one makes into an office where non-coffee shop work is performed.” The ‘home from home’ environment, social aspect and good quality coffee makes the “coffice” a very appealing workplace for many and in this blog we explore why.

What is Cold Brew?

Cold Brew is the latest craze to drive innovation in the coffee category. You’ve most likely heard of the ‘third wave’ of coffee, well Cold Brew is definitely part of this movement. Not to be confused with iced-coffee, Cold Brew is brewed completely differently to any other kind of coffee drink which gives it a really distinctive character, texture and flavour.

Cold Brew vs Iced-Coffee?

You may be wondering what the difference is between iced-coffee and Cold Brew. Well, iced coffee is brewed hot, cooled down and then served over ice, whereas Cold Brew coffee is NEVER exposed to heat. Instead it is steeped in cold/room temperature water for up to 24 hours to extract the best flavours from the bean before being served.
