What's in Flite Fuel?
Coffee and water - plain and simple! We actually incorporate five different coffee beans that are mixed together to form our signature taste. Because we use the highest quality processing materials, we don't need to add anything to our cold brew to make it taste delicious.
Is Cold Brew the Same as Iced Coffee?
Although both drinks are cold, that's really the biggest similarity. Iced coffee is simply hot-brewed coffee poured over ice. You're basically just getting watered-down, diluted coffee, which isn't fun for anyone. Cold brew is actually brewed in a completely different way than hot-brewed coffee. Think more like a French Press - ground coffee is steeped in cool, filtered water for a period of time. Once the coffee is finished steeping, the end product is a strong concentrate that can be mixed with water.
Why Cold Brew Coffee?
Cold brew is up to 60% less acidic than traditional, hot-brewed coffee. Less acid in your coffee means less bitterness, a smoother taste, and a drink that's better for your teeth and stomach. Cold brew keeps the natural sweetness of the coffee, has more body, and is the perfect way to get your caffeine fix without sacrificing taste!
What If I Like Hot Coffee?
That's awesome! You can heat up our coffee and it still tastes delicious! Heat it with a steam wand or throw it in the microwave, and you'll still have the same great taste of Nitro Joe's as a hot beverage.
Why Infuse with Nitrogen?
Nitrogen is actually a natural food preservative. It helps keep the coffee fresher for an even longer period of time than traditional cold brew. Nitrogen also gives the coffee a smooth and creamy taste, so you don't even have to add extra sugar or flavoring to give your taste buds a treat!
Does Your Cold Brew Coffee Have to Stay Refrigerated?
Yes. Because we value a high-quality taste, we do not use any additives or artificial preservatives, so our coffee must stay refrigerated. However, we will soon be launching our products through a process that will allow shelf-stability, so you won't need to refrigerate your cold brew until after you open it. Stay tuned for more information on that new process!
