illy is excited to announce a new full portfolio of illy cold brew product and equipment. Starting with our 175g cold brew pillow pack, which consists of our signature illy blend in a convenient 175g sealed mesh filter, to make cold brew steeping simple, convenient and extremely less messy. No more coffee grinds in a makeshift filter or screen, spilled grinds in the cold brew liquid, too much coffee meaning too strong of an end product. One simple 175g pack which yields just over half a gallon of ready-to-drink cold brew. Sweet, smooth yet bold and always delicious
Our second cold brew product is taking innovation in Cold Brew to new levels. Introducing illy cold brew in our new 5L bag-in-box. Instantly ready-to-drink cold brew beverage, placed in a convenient 5-liter bag-in-box format. This product has the same smooth yet bold taste of traditional illy cold brew but now in a ready-to-drink format, no more waiting 12-14 hours for cold steeping. In addition, the product is shelf stable, in ambient temperatures for up to 9 months (closed package).
Last but certainly not least, illy has developed two exclusive pieces of equipment to serve Cold Brew. The first being proprietary systems that no longer need the addition of nitrogen tanks to create a nitro style beverage. The second is our patent pending Aria Spout, which allows an operator to switch between still and illy cold brew Aria (nitro style) with the turn of a knob a single spout. There is no other equipment on the market that has either of these functionalities. Current systems used today use expensive and dangerous pressurized nitrogen tanks, require multiple taps, one for still and one for nitro and the end result is subpar. The illy Cold Brew equipment delivers perfect still cold brew and a truly amazing “Aria” nitro style cold brew with a beautiful thick foam, over 2-minute cascade and that signature illy taste. Our equipment options include a small countertop unit, which instantly connects to our bag-in-box product or to a 2.5-gallon keg. We also offer the same technology in a commercial size kegerator, with 5/10-gallon capacity in our standard kegerator unit or 3/6-gallon capacity in our ADA under the counter kegerator. All options are simple to use, easy to clean, require no nitrogen, no pressurization, standard 110v requirements and one single tap for both types of cold brew offerings.
We also offer a full range of still cold brew, illy cold brew Aria and mixology drink recipes to complement our portfolio of cold brew products and equipment.
In summary, these new cold formats are meeting the demands of the younger coffee consumers and the trade (retailers) are supporting the strong growth of cold coffee beverages within the category. Illy’s advantage is its superior quality along with its deeply rooted authenticity.
