What’s the Shelf Life of Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

A lot of people think that nitro cold brew coffee is just like regular coffee poured on ice. In reality, it is a lot different than your traditional cup of coffee.

What is Nitro Brew Coffee?

Nitro cold brew is produced by slowly steeping ground coffee beans for 12 – 24 hours at room temperature to form a coffee concentrate. Due to this long steeping process, you get an incredibly strong and sweet tasting coffee concentrate that is ready to be infused with nitro.

But before the coffee concentrate is served, it must be diluted with either water, milk or cream. For the best taste, most people only mix water in the concentrate. The dilute process actually doubles the production of coffee and eliminates the bitter taste that is usually part of a hot brewed coffee.

How Long Can Nitro Brew Survive?

The average nitro brew coffee concentrate can live past about two weeks in a clean environment before going bad. If the concentrate is not used within two weeks, it starts to lose its taste and you may even see bacteria and mold forming on the liquid. 

But for nitro brew coffee that is canned, just as our signature nitro brew coffee cans, the shelf life can be up to 6 months. The longer shelf life is achieved by high-pressure pasteurization. The process we use to increase the shelf life of our nitro brew does not change the taste of the coffee as opposed to other similar blends.

Increase the Shelf Life of Nitro Brew Coffee

Love drinking nitro brew coffee? Then it is worth investing in a kegerator. A kegerator is a keg plus refrigerator that keeps the nitro cold brew coffee concentrate fresh for up to 6 weeks. This is a lot higher than typical home-produced nitro brew.

On top of that, the nitro brew you make from a kegerator does not involve the use of preservatives or additives, always giving you the true taste of the nitro brew. So if you regularly drink nitro brew at home but don’t want to deal with the long-brewing process of nitro coffee, then consider investing in kegs and kegerator.
