I found the coffee concentrate concept to be rather unique. It piqued my interest to try the product. The first thing I noticed when I received my package was how well the glass bottles were packed. The sturdy packaging was clearly well thought out to prevent spills and breaks. The apothecary style bottles which house the modern-day beverage have an old-world charm to them. As a creative person, it was easy to appreciate the clever juxtaposition. The coffee itself is a tasty medium body blend, lending itself to be a fairly versatile substitute for cold or hot brew concoctions. I personally enjoy it most as an iced americano or a Vietnamese cold brew. But I have used it to prepare desserts - it worked well for tiramisu and granita.
Personally I found the concept to be intriguing at first, but I did find the term coffee “concentrate” to be a little open to interpretation. I had expected it to be a lot more concentrated than it was. The trouble with this was two fold. One, it takes a lot more effort in measuring quantities when preparing my coffee. Two, I go through the bottles a lot faster. One bottle suffices maybe 4-5 servings of coffee. Given that the bottles have a shelf life of two weeks, it’s not super convenient to replenish and restock it in time for use. So I do hope they can offer some super strength concentrates with a longer shelf life in the future.
