“I never worked a day in the coffee industry, but we wanted to launch our own cafe and used Coffee Hound’s consulting from concept to build out, menu design and barista training. Now after sampling espresso drinks from other cafes in the area, I feel like we are more experienced and produce better drinks than any other cafe. I also feel like we cut years off the learning curve to launch more successfully than we would have doing it on our own.” (New Cafe Owner, Maine)

Coffee Hound’s 207 Cold Brew Coffee on tap or in RTD’s for your cafe or restaurant?
Some of the biggest trends in the coffee industry as of 2022 include iced coffee, nitro cold brew coffee and ready to drink coffee in cans or bottles. The cold brew coffee market size is expected to reach 1.63 billion by 2025.
Coffee Hound has the largest cold brew coffee (in kegs and barrels) program in Maine in partnership with Geaghan’s Brewery and distributed by Valley & Maine Distributors.
For cafes that do make cold brew it alleviates time, mess, inconsistencies and extra labor to produce onsite in small batch systems. It gives access to restaurants, bars and cafes who don’t already have a cold brew coffee program access to a top-notch product finished product for their customers who drink iced coffee year-round as it is no longer a seasonal beverage it is a year-round program. The keg version of cold brew coffee has little to no loss from pour to pour which happens with beer and the shelf life is much longer than a keg of beer, a great profit margin.
Interested in serving Coffee Hound’s 207 cold brew coffee on tap in kegs or barrels at your establishment?
Or if you prefer a ready to drink (RTD) coffee in cans – we have two wholesale options (black nitro and a Maple Latte with Oatly). Private label can is an option contact us directly.
