With a taste reminiscent of a good stout, the new java product can provide a boost to the outdoor efforts.
caffeinated coffee is reported to help athletes work out harder and longer. Studies have concluded that the caffeine even makes exercise seem less strenuous.
Now Lexington Coffee Roasters has come out with a cold-brewed bottled coffee that makes it easier to guzzle your cup of joe on the trail. While bottled flavored coffee drinks aren’t new, gourmet cold brew created in a 12-hour process is just starting to take off. The process opens up new flavors that might have been masked by the hot-brewed coffee’s acidity.
“This coffee can taste a little like a creamy, chocolatey stout beer,” says Melissa Scholl, owner of the Lexington-based company.
Lexington Coffee Roasters makes two types of bottled cold-brew: dark and creamy Caffebierra and the fruity, lighter Kaffale. Both are available at Lexington Coffee’s roastery and espresso bar just off Interstate 81 at Exit 195 as well as the company’s downtown Lexington tasting room at 7 North Main Street.
“We’re working on a wider distribution plan, but that’s a little tricky because cold-brewed coffee should stay chilled for the best taste,” Scholl says.
A beverage that tastes like a good beer and keeps you bouncing for hours might just be worth the trip to Lexington.
