“We used to make cold brew to sell our consumers in the back of the cafe, but it was inconsistent. We love having a reliable vendor that takes pride in the quality of their beverages and is also committed to high quality service.”

Unbeatable in a taste test

“It is extremely smooth, delicious and doesn’t have that chemically taste. It tastes fresh - like it was just brewed and handed to me. Love it!”

Converted me to coffee

“I only started drinking coffee recently, when I discovered that cold brew contains far less acidity/bitterness than coffee that is brewed hot. Now I'm obsessed.”

- Mike H.


What is Nitro Cold Brew?

Our Nitro Cold Brew is a unique style of coffee that undergoes a special preparation process. Unlike iced coffee, which is brewed hot and served cold, cold brew is brewed cold and served cold.

We begin our process by steeping freshly-roasted specialty coffee beans in cold water for over 18 hours, allowing the natural coffee flavors to infuse fully without extracting the bitter compounds released during a hot brew.

Next, we meticulously filter our cold brew six times to remove any remaining coffee grounds from the beverage.

Finally, we infuse the cold brew with nitrogen, which gives the beverage a naturally sweet and creamy texture, eliminating the need for additional sweeteners or creamers.

The result is a delicious, refreshing, and incredibly smooth cup of coffee, made exclusively with three simple ingredients: coffee, water, and nitrogen.

What types of cold coffee does CWJ offer?

We serve two primary products: cold brew concentrate and ready-to-drink cold brew. With the concentrate, you are equipped with an ingredient that can be used to make hundreds of different beverages. Just pour, mix, and serve. If you want to just have a simple program with cold coffee beverages that are pour and serve with minimal mixing, try our ready-to-drink program. Our coffee is bold and smooth, with no bitter after taste. We use a medium roasted coffee that appeals to the vast majority of taste profiles.

What other beverages can I make with cold brew?

You can make hundreds of different beverages with our cold coffee concentrate as a base ingredients ranging from delicious lattes to cold brew to espresso martinis. The possibilities are endless. Check out our recipe page for some inspiration but we encourage you to experiment and create your own beverages.

Built on passion

In 2004, Mom and I worked together at a local coffee shop. She was a roaster. I was a barista. We fell in love with freshly-roasted coffee and she has been roasting ever since. Commonwealth Joe was founded to bring Mom's coffee to the community, with a mission of making amazing coffee approachable.

With over 15 years of roasting experience, our mission is to breathe new life into an ancient craft and make amazing coffee approachable. Because if you're going to do something every day, why not make it remarkable?
