What is Cold Brew Coffee?
It’s coffee that’s brewed with room temperature or cold water over a 12 to 24-hour brew time
Because it’s made with colder water, it’s generally a bit mellower and tastes more rounded out
So there’s more of a full body and a little less acidity than iced coffee.
So what's the difference between Cold Brew and Iced Coffee you ask? Cold brew is created by steeping medium-to-coarse ground coffee in room temperature water for 12 hours or longer and then filtering out the grounds for a clean cup without sediment. Unlike regular coffee, cold brew is never exposed to heat. Cold brew uses time, rather than heat to extract the coffee’s oils, sugars, and caffeine. Iced coffee is created like any regular hot coffee brew method. It's simply hot coffee that has been cooled down so that it can be poured over ice.
About the Coffee Makers
Caffè Umbria is a full-service, wholesale coffee roaster based in Seattle, Washington. But the family's roots in roasting go back to the 1940's, when Ornello Bizzarri built his roastery in Perugia, Italy. The Arco Etrusco in our logo is a landmark of the Umbrian city.
Roaster Emanuele Bizzarri has always had coffee in his blood -- from his grandfather Ornello to his father Umberto. When his family moved to Seattle from Italy, he became the third generation in a family of roasters, and he's since carried that tradition on through Caffè Umbria with partners Jesse Sweeney and Pasquale Madeddu.
Equipped with a state-of-the-art roaster and a great passion for blending and roasting, Caffè Umbria captures the true essence of Italian-style espresso and coffee, combined with the convenience and service of a local roaster.
Caffè Umbria is currently served in hundreds of cafés and fine dining establishments throughout North America, from the Bellagio Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas to the Culinary Institute of America in Napa. To each of our customers, we guarantee unmatched quality, freshness and professional service.
