SOLO Cold Brew Coffee Makers

Speciality coffee is great. But it can get pretty complicated. For SOLO Coffee, it felt that an outstanding cup of coffee is hard to come by. It’s easy enough to find a promising bag of coffee beans, but it then takes lots of skill to brew it to perfection, even at a good café the quality seems to be hit and miss. That’s when SOLO Coffee decided to make it our mission to make great coffee more accessible.

The name comes from the Spanish 'Café Solo', directly translated as 'just coffee', which is the name given to black coffee or espresso. They think there’s something powerful about doing one thing well. Simplifying, not complicating. They're not interested in trying to do everything. They’ll focus on doing their one thing well, so their customers can focus on doing their one thing well.

Whilst SOLO Coffee are hugely passionate about coffee itself, they feel their true love for coffee is found in its use and its effect. Coffee makes us focussed, dynamic and energetic. Characteristics that enable productivity and creativity. Modern coffee companies are notoriously non-inclusive. Lots of jargon. Lots of snobbery. Lots of facial hair. As a modern coffee company ourselves, SOLO Coffee feel that it is our right to avoid talking varietals, altitudes and terroir. They don’t feel the need to celebrate just the coffee, they want to also celebrate what it allows us to do. SOLO Coffee do one thing. Cold brew coffee. Coffee and water. Nothing added where nothing more is needed.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
