So, what is nitro coffee and why is it different?

Nitro coffee is different in the way it’s made, the way it tastes and the way it looks.

Put simply, its cold coffee infused with nitrogen. Adding nitrogen to coffee has pretty cool results making coffee smoother and creamier. It also creates an exciting cascading effect leaving nitro looking like a frothy, non–alcoholic beer!


So how do you make nitro coffee?

You add nitrogen! Nitrogen has been used in several types of beverages for a long time – for example it is added to beers such as Guinness to give them their characteristic look and taste. In fact – once nitrogen is added to coffee it looks similar to beer with the same cascading effect, and thick crema on top, only it is coffee instead!

Ultimately, nitro coffee provides ice cold refreshment that is creamy, smooth and a more exciting way to enjoy coffee.
