Thinking Cup’s carefully chosen Third Wave Coffee roaster, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, has yet again raised the bar. In April of this year, Stumptown released a cold brew coffee housed in a nitro-pressurized can. However, they upped their cold brew game yet again, recently releasing their annual Grand Cru coffee bean as a glass-bottled RTD cold brew!
This cold brew is packed in 750 ml bottles similar to wine bottles. It’s made from single-origin Gesha beans—one of the most recognizable and highly regarded Arabica varieties.
Stumptown’s 2015 Grand Cru was cold-brewed directly by the roaster using Finca El Puenta Gesha beans as Stumptown aimed to do something different for 2015. It was first unveiled on November 6th and appeared on shelves the same day.
As a result of the premium, low-yield crop of beans used for Grand Cru, Stumptown has produced it in extremely limited quantities and will offer it through the end of this year or as long as supplies last.
Stumptown is known for its passion for Third Wave Coffee and cold brew, so it probably comes as little surprise that they chose to celebrate this year’s crop of Gesha by using this brewing method.
