There’s plenty of common ground between fans of craft beer and fans of small-batch coffee, but combining the two generally falls to the brewers, who deploy java in coffee stouts and other hyper-charged ales. But out in Denver, one roaster is flipping the script.
Cool Material brings word of Corvus Hopped Coffee, which is a bottled cold-brew that’s been dry-hopped with whole-cone Citra hops from Washington state. While it sounds a little weird, the combination makes sense—cold-brewed coffee often has citrus notes, and Citra hops are known for their intense citrusy aroma.
Still, the thought of smelling hops and tasting coffee with your breakfast brew might take some getting used to. Currently, Corvus sells 12-packs for pickup or office delivery in Denver.
