Coffee Served Cold
Lincoln & York is excited to announce a new product under its own name.
Black Eye ‘coffee served cold’ is the perfect product for today’s fast-growing cold brew coffee market, and is supplied in a convenient ready-to-serve foodservice format, ideal for cafés, restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs and hotels.
It is the result of our long-established coffee expertise. It is crafted using a carefully chosen blend of Arabica beans from Guatemala, Brazil and Colombia, roasted and ground to perfection before being steeped in cold filtered water for up to 20 hours. Because the bean doesn’t come into contact with hot water, the cold brew process brings out completely different flavour notes in the finished brew. As a result, Black Eye is naturally sweet with a smooth, chocolatey and moreish finish.
Black Eye is supplied in a 10 litre ‘bag-in-box’, which contains 30-40 servings, allows ambient storage and gives a nine-month shelf-life. It’s easy to dispense, either straight from the tap or through a nitrogen system, or a combination of both. Dispensing through nitrogen creates a silky-textured, Guinness-like drink. Black Eye blends well with milk, or can be used as a mixer for a wide variety of cocktails and ‘mocktails’.
Managing Director, James Sweeting, explains the reasoning behind the launch: “Cold brew coffee is currently one of the ‘hottest’ products around. The market is relatively new in the UK but is strong and fast-growing, so consumer demand for this on-trend product will only increase as it becomes mainstream. It’s an ideal time to introduce a great-tasting, high quality cold brew coffee onto the menu, and Black Eye ‘coffee served cold’ from Lincoln & York offers an easy-to-use, ready-to-go and profitable product for this lucrative market.”
