Mocktail Diaries: Cold Brew Shaker

Mocktail Diaries: Cold Brew Shaker

National Coffee Day is this Saturday, and we could not be more excited! Saying that we love coffee is an understatement. We are fueled by coffee and are always on the search for delicious java concoctions. That’s how we met the coffee innovating and cold brew trailblazing Press Coffee. As the first company in Arizona to put cold brew on tap, Press Coffee is a locally owned, community-focused company that provides the highest quality coffee products, service, and knowledge.

In addition to their continuously evolving menu, one of the amazing things that sets Press Coffee apart is their passion to share their love and expertise of coffee with the community. Press Coffee hosts Coffee 101 classes that offer a combination of coffee education and tasting. Classes are held every Saturday, alternating between the Scottsdale Quarter and Chandler Ocotillo locations.

Recently, Press Coffee decided to shake things up — see what we did there?! — with a new way to highlight their cold brew: Cold Brew Shakers. These dairy free, soy free, and gluten free beverages come in four flavors — two of which boast 16 grams of protein — offering a healthy alternative and great post-workout drink. The best part? They are made in cocktail shakers!

Stop by one of Press coffee’s seven full-service locations — Ocotillo, Downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale Waterfront, Biltmore, Scottsdale Quarter, Tempe Skywater, and Tempe Nexa— to try a Cold Brew Shaker, or pick up a flask of Press Cold Brew and mix one up at home.

We invite you to join us in celebrating National Coffee Day on September 29 at Press Coffee. Each of their nine Valley locations are offering free drip coffee all day, plus, order a latte through the Press app and use the promo code NCD2018 to get $2 off. Happy National Coffee Day!
