This cold brew blend has chocolaty sweetness with a subtle note of citrus zest. It is so smooth and bursting with flavour. Coffee origins are South America.
A good rule of thumb is to use a 1:4 coffee to water ratio when making cold brew CONCENTRATE. A simple way to make it is with a French Press. Put 100g (or 1.25 cup) of coarse ground coffee and 454ml of cold water into your French Press. Let your coffee and water rest for 12-24 hours and then plunge it. Now put it in a sealed jar in the fridge and it will keep for 2 weeks.
Try out this recipe to get you started: 3oz cold brew concentrate 2oz cream 2oz sweetened condensed milk Add a flavour shot and pour over ice.
Or make this delicious blend as a cold brew drink versus a concentrate with 1:8 part coffee to water.

From the author of Canada Reads finalistScarborough, a stunning new novel about the unbreakable bond of family and the magic that can happen when we meet in the middle
Like many Overseas Filipino Workers, Mary Grace Concepcion has lived a life of sacrifices. First, she left her husband, Ale, to be a caregiver in Hong Kong. Now, she has travelled even farther, to Canada, in the hopes of one day sponsoring Ale and having children of their own.
But when she arrives in Toronto, she must navigate a series of bewildering and careless employers and unruly children. Mary Grace seeks new employment as a Personal Support Worker and begins caring for Liz, an elderly patient suffering from Alzheimer's disease, whose health is as fragile as her rundown bungalow beside the Rouge River in Scarborough. While Mary Grace's time with her charge challenges her conservative beliefs, she soon becomes Liz's biggest ally, and the friendship that grows between them will turn out to be just as legendary as Liz's past.
Beautifully narrated by the all-seeing eye of Mary Grace's newborn baby,The Story of Usis a novel about sisterhood, about blood and chosen family, and about how belonging can be found where we least expect it.
WINNER of the 2022 Amazon First Novel Award WINNER of the 2022 Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer Prize for Literary Fiction
A graceful and indelible debut about love, grief, and family welcomes you into its pages and invites you to linger, staying with you long after you've closed its covers.
How do you grieve, if your family doesn't talk about feelings?
This is the question the unnamed protagonist of Ghost Forest considers after her father dies. One of the many Hong Kong "astronaut" fathers, he stayed in Hong Kong to work, while the rest of the family immigrated to Vancouver before the 1997 Handover, when the British returned sovereignty over Hong Kong to China.
As she revisits memories of her father throughout the years, she struggles with unresolved questions and misunderstandings. Turning to her mother and grandmother for answers, she discovers her own life refracted brightly in theirs.
Buoyant, heartbreaking, and unexpectedly funny, Ghost Forest is a slim novel that envelops the reader in joy and sorrow. Fung writes with a poetic and haunting voice, layering detail and abstraction, weaving memory and oral history to paint a moving portrait of a Chinese-Canadian astronaut family.
Pik-Shuen Fung was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Vancouver, Canada. She has received fellowships and residencies from Kundiman, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Millay Arts, and Storyknife. Ghost Forest, her first book, won the Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer Prize for Literary Fiction.
