Pekoe’s 24-Hour Cold Brew Coffee

Winter weather is on its way out. The days are longer and temperatures are rising. Spring fruits and vegetables are ripening, and as of this weekend, the farmers’ market is back in town. At Pekoe Sip House, we are ready to welcome our favorite iced beverages back into the regular drink rotation. We have written about popular iced teas and iced boba drinks – now it’s time to share some of the frosty cold spotlight with Cold Brew Coffee!

Pekoe's 24-Hour Cold Brew Coffee

The Difference Between Cold Brew Coffee and Iced Coffee

The difference between iced coffee and cold brew is simple. Iced Coffee is typically brewed hot, then cooled with ice or in the refrigerator. Cold Brew Coffee is cold from start to finish, with cool water absorbing the coffee’s flavor over a long period of time.

Our Cold Brew is made with our signature Muse blend, an organic gold roast coffee. The Muse blend is soft and mellow with notes of dark cherry, vanilla, and hazelnut. Over a 24-hour period, freshly ground coffee beans infuse cold water to create our signature Cold Brew Coffee. This deliberately slow process ensures rich, balanced flavor. Delicious over ice, our Cold Brew also takes milk and sugar well. Add the milk and sweetener of your choice at home or in our three Boulder cafe locations!

Best Unique Coffee in Boulder

Ahh, coffee. For many of us, there’s nothing better than the first cup of the day. While Pekoe Sip House specializes in tea, the heart of our philosophy is the “sip.” Our cafe experience and online shop aren’t confined to the world of loose-leaf tea, but include three tasty, signature coffee blends as well. How could we ignore one of the most popular drinks in America?

Hello, Coffee Drinkers

If you enjoy a cup or more of coffee each day, you are in good company. More than half of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee, averaging more than 3 cups of coffee per day! What’s more, National Geographic published the results of a study that found that “coffee is the top source of disease-fighting antioxidants in the U.S. diet.”

Coffee boasts a host of health benefits including increased energy and fat burn, thanks in large part to its caffeine content. In addition to boosting brain power, coffee may lower your risk of Type 2 diabetes and protect against Alzheimer’s and dementia. That’s certainly worth reaching for the french press.

The caffeine and the health benefits may have hooked us, but we keep coming back for the taste. At Pekoe Sip House, we offer three unique coffee blends with full-bodied flavor and rich aroma: Continue reading

Change Your Milk

Milk is a great source of calcium, vitamin D, and protein, it’s true – but for those with lactose allergies or vegan diets, we offer soy, rice, and almond milk alternatives. Each alternative fits a different lifestyle, and they all taste unique! Soy milk is a good source of protein and vitamin B. Almond Milk is a low calorie option with no saturated fat or cholesterol, and a good source of vitamins D and E. Rice Milk is good for those with nut allergies. Whether you’re searching for a new flavor or different health benefits, we have a milk that’s a fit for you.

Add a Detox or Protein

With newly available Skoop powders, you can quickly and easily add 100% plant-based whole food nutrition to your favorite drink. Cleanse and reboot your body with Detox A-Game, or shake in Super All-In-One, which delivers the protein and nutrition of a balanced meal and promotes digestive health.

Toss In Chia Seeds

Soaked chia does more than add fun texture. These tiny black seeds are high in fiber and protein, and are naturally gluten-free. A smart addition to any smoothie, iced tea, or breakfast bowl!

10 Boba Tea Drinks to Satisfy Every Craving

For the uninitiated, a Boba Tea (also known as Bubble Tea or Pearl Milk Tea) is a combination of tea and milk with tapioca pearls. To make the pearls, starch of the tapioca plant is mixed with water and kneaded into a dough. Small pieces are then broken off, rolled into balls, and laid out to dry. Just before serving, the dry tapioca pearls are tossed into a pot of boiling water and become the sweet, chewy bubbles we all enjoy munching on. At Pekoe Sip House, we prepare our boba fresh every morning to be added to your favorite cold drink.

As we mentioned in our Boba Tea Blog Feature, this exotic tea drink was invented in Taiwan during the 1980s. We have been making Boba Tea at Pekoe’s three Boulder locations since our doors first opened in 2003.

SIP TIP: All Boulder cafe loose-leaf teas can be enjoyed hot, cold, as a latte, or with boba pearls.

  • Chai Wallah Boba
  • Forbidden Freeze Boba
  • White Strawberry Boba
  • Iced Sunny Green Boba
  • Iced Vanilla Toddy Boba

If you haven’t tried boba tea yet, be forewarned: Some say the tapioca pearls are an aquired taste due to their chewy texture. Others say you may get hooked after the first drink, insisting no other iced, blended, whipped or slushed drink will every be the same again.
