Keeping cool with cold coffee

Cold coffee doesn’t have to be just cold brew. Now being served at the shop, espresso tonics and Japanese style cold pour-overs, aka, iced pour-overs, aka flash brew.

Why iced pour-overs? Because we want you to be able to taste what you want, and the flavour that hits you is next level. The sweetness and high notes of a hot brew, without the oxidized feel and taste of a cold brew. Get it fresh, made for you, right when you order.

Here’s our recipe for a Japanese style pour-over:

  • For 12oz worth, you’ll need 20g of Modus coffee, 175ml hot water, 175g ice.
  • Your ice will go into your vessel, cup, or carafe.
  • Your coffee should be fresh ground, about sea salt fine. 
  • Pre wet your filter.
  • Bloom your coffee with double your dry weight (40ml), stir and saturate all of your coffee.
  • After 30 seconds slowly pour the rest of your hot water from the center moving outward.
  • We use a Kalita 102, and aim for a finish time of around 3:00 to 3:30 minutes. If you stop your pour at about 1:30, you should hit this range.

Swirl your finished iced coffee and enjoy. It’ll get more mellow the more you sip, and the more the rest of the ice melts.
