Cold Brew Coffee – the perfect coffee break for summer

Cold Brew Coffee: the perfect coffee break for summer

Cold Brew Coffee is a beverage whose origins seem to date back to Japan in the 1600s. In the East, they liked to prepare this coffee drink by percolating cold water through ground coffee powder.

The result was a concentrate with almost no fat, which made it a long-life product suitable for travelling.

Cold Brew Coffee

An extraction system that has come down to the present day, optimised and perfected by means of special “Cold Brew Coffee Maker”.

Cold Brew Coffee: The Invention of Toddy

In 1864, American chemist Todd Simpson patented the Toddy, a more versatile system than the classic percolation coffee maker and still one of the most popular systems for preparing Cold Brew Coffee today.

With Toddy, the extraction is done by infusion in cold water and 12 hours of rest are required to obtain a real coffee concentrate that can be diluted with cold water or milk.

How to prepare it at home?

Pour some roasted and filter-ground coffee into a jug; for one litre of drink, we recommend using about 60 grams of filter-ground coffee.

Cold Brew Coffee

Add water.

Stir with a ladle.

Cover and let stand 12 hours in the fridge.

Cold Brew Coffee

Take the infusion out of the fridge and stir it with a spoon before straining.

Strain the infusion into a bowl using a cheese cloth or, if you don’t have one, you can use tights.

Accessories, variations and tips

For a small investment, you can also buy jugs and bottles with the filter already built in, so you can easily prepare a delicious iced coffee at home in just a few steps.

You simply need water and filter coffee.

Whichever extraction method you choose, serve in a glass with ice.

You can add other ingredients such as milk and vegetable alternatives from soya milk to coconut milk for an even tastier drink.


Cold-brewed coffee, thanks to the slow percolation that does not use high temperatures, is already low in bitterness, so we recommend that you do not add sugar to savour the full aromaticity of the coffee.

Besides being a great solution for your summer coffee break, the advantage of Cold Brew Coffee is its shelf life, in fact you can leave it in the fridge for up to 2-3 days!

With the extra coffee you can create ice cubes to serve directly in milk.

Happy Coffee and Happy Summer to everyone!

Fairtrade in Costadoro: the premium of 22.300 euros

Fairtrade in Costadoro

About Fairtrade…hat do you think about when you buy a coffee? The taste, the quality, the price or a combination of these? Through your choices you can make a difference.

In fact, by choosing a Fairtrade certified product you can influence the situations of many people. Fairtrade products improve the living and working conditions of many families in developing countries.


How does Fairtrade work?

Fairtrade coffee producers don’t work alone but are organized in cooperatives with different advantages: they are aware of the commercial value of their coffee being able to better negotiate the price, they buy the working tools in community and thanks to the exchange of information they learn from each other.

Fairtrade guarantees a minimum price that covers the costs of production representing a security for the producer in times when the prices of the stock exchange are low.

From the beginning of 2019, through July 2021, Fairtrade organic coffee was paid to producers, on average, 53% more than the exchange cost.

An additional benefit is the Fairtrade premium, a sum of money received in addition to the minimum price, which the farmers and workers themselves decide how to spend. They can choose to improve production techniques, build roads and infrastructure.


Costadoro and the premium of 22.300 euros

Thanks to the sales of the Costadoro RespecTo line, the 100% Arabica blend coming from Organic and Fairtrade cultivation, the prize awarded thanks to Costadoro in 2021 was 22.300 euros (in 2019 the Costadoro Fairtrade premium amounted to 15.500 euros while in 2020 to 12.500 euros).


The stable income decreases the risk of child labor, which is prohibited by Fairtrade standards as forced labor.

In addition, Fairtrade promotes environmental protection by actively banning GMO products and ensuring the proper use of water.
