What is cold brewing?
The cold brew process involves ground beans, filtered water, and 18-24 hours of time. That is, we grind the beans, soak them in water for 18-24 hours, then filter out the beans to get the coffee concentrate. A very simple low tech process. The key is choosing the right bean, water, timing, and filtration process. We experimented quite a bit to come up with cold brewing recipe.

Where did the name come from?
Growing up in Washington DC area a secret squirrel was something like knowing a shortcut around traffic, or knowing the hideaway parking spot, or knowing the unknown electrical outlet in the coffee shop. It only seemed fitting for this centuries old method for brewing coffee that few people know about.
How many servings in a bottle?
A 16oz bottle of cold brew coffee concentrate makes 6-7 8oz drinks or 4-5 12oz drinks. Really depends on how you like it - strong to mild.
How long does it last?
The the cold brew process locks in the flavor of beans very well. It'll keep at room temp for 7-10days and for weeks in the frig.
When you get your bottle put in the frig to be sure it stays fresh for as long as possible
How do I mix a drink?
We've provided some basic guidelines on the back of the bottles. Start with 1 part cold brew concentrate to 2 parts milk or water, then adjust to your taste.
I like 1 part concentrate to 3 parts whole milk. She likes 1 part concentrate to 2 parts almond milk. I also like 1 part concentrate to 2 parts water.
Strong or mild, hot or iced, it's great anyway you like it!
