Nitro Cold Brew🥤

November 19th is National Carbonated🥤 Beverage with Caffeine Day

Nitro cold brew is a type of coffee served chilled. It is a variation of cold brewed coffee that uses the addition of nitrogen gas to create a smooth texture. Though recently created, the beverage has grown in popularity.

Production of Nitro cold brew coffee begins with the making of cold brew coffee, a process that can take up to 24 hours. Once the grounds are adequately steeped, the coffee is put into a room-temperature bottle or keg. As the cold brew is poured, it is charged with nitrogen to give it a rich, creamy head of foam, similar to draft beer. Though most beers and soft drinks are infused with carbon dioxide, nitrogen is occasionally used, for example in darker stouts, resulting in a smoother finish. This is a direct effect of nitrogen bubbles being smaller in size than those of carbon dioxide, resulting in a beverage with a thicker mouthfeel. Nitro cold brew is typically served chilled, without ice as to not damage the foamy top. Adding nitrogen makes the coffee smoother and less bitter; according to an industry analyst, the process "reveals the natural sweetness of the product and reduces the sugar requirement".
