How to Mix Cold Brew Concentrate
We brew our coffee strong to give you the freedom to make your own perfectly mixed premium blend coffee. So how exactly should you go about doing that? The simplest way is to mix it with a 1 to 1 ratio. Mix it with straight concentrate and water (black coffee), concentrate and your choice of milk (your usual coffee mix), or have some fun with it and add it to a mixed drink or infused in your favourite recipe.
