Nitro Cold Brew Options and Costs

Nitro Brew Coffee, your wallet and more!

Nitro coffee is turning into a staple option for many consumers. Whether they enjoy a good nitro at home or at a local cafe or a chain store, it is only getting more popular. Cafes across different regions , big and small, see increased demand. The silky smooth beverage is a great drink on a hot summer day. The cascade of tiny nitrogen bubbles settling at the top to form a crema is a visual treat. Dairy is optional.

We believe that the nitro trend will only grow, not just for coffee but other beverages like tea and cocktails too. The visuals and the taste of nitro beverages is so unique that more and more people are taking notice. NitroBrew® brings this into your home with the single serve kettle system. You can infuse any drink in under a minute from the comfort of your home, one cup at a time.

As a consumer, you typically have the following options to enjoy a nitro coffee:

  • Buy pre-packaged nitro coffee from a grocery store
  • Make nitro coffee at home.
  • Grab a nitro from a local coffee shop or God forbid, from a Starbucks near you 🙂

Let’s look at the costs associated with each of these.

Pre-Packaged and In-Store

The pre-packaged nitro-coffee market seems to be gaining momentum. There are more canned nitro options for consumers at grocery stores. Companies of all sizes are rushing their pre-packaged options to market. Typically, you need to shake the can or bottle and dump the beverage somewhat violently into a glass to achieve the perfect cascade and infusion. This technique works but is subject to a lot of variabilities and you may not achieve that classic nitro pour you were hoping to see! The cost of these ranges from $20 to $30 for an 8 pack. These pre-packaged options can get expensive for a consumer who needs a coffee fix every morning. This could add up to $800 -$1200 in a year.

Getting your nitro fix from a coffee chain isn’t budget-friendly either. Prices available online and in menus can range from $3.25 to $5.00 per cup. Projecting that over a year, you are looking at $1000 to $1500 (yikes!). It adds up pretty quickly.

Nitro Cold Brew System Cost

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee at Home

There are several different products available in the market to enjoy nitro coffee at home. Most have cartridges that need to be replaced. While the initial cost of these systems is low, the cost of consumables, like cartridges, add up really fast. NitroBrew® is the only system out there for home use that has no consumables. Air is 78% nitrogen so NitroBrew® uses air to infuse into your beverage. You can make your own cold brew coffee at home or purchase any from the market. There are several options available. Another tip for you, with NitroBrew®, you can even just chill drip coffee and infuse! See how you like it. Is decaf your thing? Well, we have customers who nitro their decaf coffee with our system!

Cartridges

Cartridge systems might seem convenient at first. All you have to do is fill a container with cold coffee and screw in a cartridge on the available port. The in-built mechanism pierces the cartridge and the gas flows into the headspace of the container. The container then has to be shaken and dispensed. They are offered in a few different sizes and there are plenty of cartridge manufacturers on the market. The cartridges are filled with pure Nitrogen (N2) or Nitrous Oxide (N2O). Manufacturing and trashing these cartridges are a huge source of pollution, more on that later.

Looking at some of the popular systems online, the prices for the first year of use range between $593 to $1194*. The catch though, is in the recurring cost of those cartridges. Depending on the type of system and volume of gas required, second year onward, the cost ranges between $394 and $1033 per year. This cost never goes away as long as you use the system.

The price of NitroBrew® systems may seem high at first, but, over a short period of time, the system pays for itself and then some! There are no recurring costs of consumables. The systems are designed to be durable and safe to operate. There is no risk of malfunctioning cartridges or handling cylinders. The versatility and flexibility of NitroBrew® is unmatched. You can make any drink a nitro drink and experiment to see what others drinks you may enjoy on nitro. Beer, coffee, tea, cocktails, mocktails, root beer, cream soda and more. NitroBrew, with zero consumables, easily offsets the initial higher price of the system! Plus the fun of trying and experimenting different drinks on nitro is appealing to many! Enjoy nitro drinks without trashing the environment!

Nitro Brew Kit Costs

Local coffee shops

While we would love everyone to have a NitroBrew home kit and experiment, a word about supporting local cafes and coffee shops. Being a small business ourselves, we know how hard we have to work to earn the trust and business of a consumer. We also know that local businesses put their heart and soul into their business and are some of the most passionate people we have come to know. We would never dissuade you from visiting your local shop with family or friends and enjoying good company with some good coffee. Such interactions are invaluable. But if you go to your favorite cafe and don’t see NitroBrew, maybe you can put in a word for them to check us out 🙂

Sustainability

78% of the air we breathe is Nitrogen. The price and energy to extract that Nitrogen from air, package it and transport it to the point of use is quite high.. This extraction process is a source of pollution because significant amounts of Carbon Dioxide is produced, which is a greenhouse gas. As high as these charges may seem, they don’t end at the point of use. The cartridges then have to be disposed of. They cannot be recycled because the risk of explosion of an unused cartridge is high. So, they end up in a landfill. To get to the landfill, they need to be transported from the point of use to a dump zone via fossil fuel powered trucks which add to air pollution. This pollution is further worsened in cases of Nitrous Oxide. The gas itself is very harmful to the environment, manufacturing and transporting it aggravates the situation further.

NitroBrew® takes sustainability seriously. Using the air we breathe to infuse into drinks is extremely energy efficient, causes no pollution and the dollar savings for consumers is like a cherry on top of that nitro brew! You can pat yourself on the back for doing your part for the environment!

Best Nitro Cold Brew System – Sustainability

NitroBrew Cold Brew System – Promise of Sustainability!

Nitrogen is a transparent, odorless gas that can be infused into coffee or any drink to produce a smooth, creamy beverage. Nitro Brew Coffee has been a fairly recent trend of nitro beverages that offers a completely different and delightful coffee experience. Cream or dairy is optional.

However, storing, transporting, and refilling nitrogen regularly is a highly energy-intensive process. The energy used to generate nitrogen from the air (air is 78% nitrogen) via the fractional distillation process produces a significant amount of carbon dioxide, not to mention the pollution dredged up for the fossil fuels generating power. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, is a major contributor to global warming and ocean acidification. Once produced, the cost of transporting and maintaining the high-pressure nitrogen tanks and cartridges can further add to the carbon footprint and climate change, and can be felt in the pocketbook.

Smaller portable and disposable gas cartridges, although convenient, can still mean moving a lot of metal for even smaller amounts of gas. And remember, although those cartridges are providing nitrogen, you are already including a lot of oxygen into the beverage by the time you open the gizmo, pour your drink, and screw-in that cartridge anyway! Today, most of the disposable cartridges are not recycled and end up in landfills.

We also think nitrous oxide gas (N2O) used for certain products (e.g. whipped cream and some “nitro-style” creamed coffees) is especially damaging. The global warming potential of nitrous oxide is almost 300 times greater than carbon dioxide Nitrous oxide persists in the atmosphere for hundreds of years as well causing cumulative damage to the environment. While nitrous oxide gas cylinders and cartridges bear the same problems as nitrogen systems, the nitrous oxide gas used ends up in the environment.

 

NitroBrew

We developed NitroBrew Kits with two things in mind:

i) Offer a clean and sustainable way to make nitro beverages
ii) Make serving nitro brew  affordable for everyone

At NitroBrew, we are very passionate about environmental sustainability. We offer a way to make Nitro-beverages without any consumables. Although all NitroBrew products can handle a variety of gases (nitrogen, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, argon, helium, etc) we strongly encourage everyone to simply use the air we breathe. When using air, you still infuse a lot of nitrogen (78% of air is nitrogen). Most of the remaining gas that is oxygen is actually more foam-positive than nitrogen.

The wonderful flavor of coffee (and tea, chocolate, beer, and various beverages and foods in general) is the result of complex chemical reactions that happen during processing. For example, the amino acids react with sugars and other carbohydrates during the roasting process (some of these are called Maillard reactions) giving rise to a variety of compounds beyond what is already present in the beans. These compounds include flavonoids [sic], polyphenols, tannins, and so on. The signature bouquet of a particular cup of coffee is the result of the bean variety, its growth and harvest conditions, moisture, the roasting time and temperature program, and so on. The spectrum of compounds that impact the taste and flavor can be quite complex- so much so that one can sometimes resign themselves to attribute it all to the mood of the roaster on that particular day he or she came to work 🙂

Everyone agrees that a freshly brewed cup of coffee from freshly roasted and ground beans tastes the best. But, if you let that coffee sit around, the flavor can go stale. The culprit is oxidation. There are numerous mechanisms for oxidative damage to the foods and beverages that cause staling. The maillard reaction products, flavonoids, polyphenols, various aldehydes, and lipids undergo oxidation by various mechanisms. Usually, despite the oxidative reactions, the compounds associated with stale character do not appear until long after the oxidation happens. Indeed, if the product is stored cold, it may take so long to notice stale character that the shelf life can be ‘freshness-dated’ as long as many months into the future.

 

What about Oxygen in the air?

The bad rap that oxygen gets is (justifiably) mainly from the experience of packaged goods industry where the goods need to be inventoried and moved through distribution and sales channels. Oxygen presence slowly leads to the food or beverage developing a stale character. Although the staling is noticeably faster at warmer storage temperatures staling is extremely slow at refrigerator temperatures. For example, beer, which happens to be one of the most oxygen-sensitive products to package, demands that the total package oxygen content be less than a few tens of parts per billion to get a decent shelf life at typical storage and distribution temperatures. If the product is kept cold, it can take several months for even an expert taster to pick up any stale character.

Environmentally Friendly and budget-friendly Nitro Brew System!

But none of the issues with Oxygen is really relevant for a typical NitroBrew technology use case. The idea is to make a fresh NitroBrew’d drink, on-demand, for instant gratification! With NitroBrew, while you can still use nitrogen for nitro coffee (or nitrous oxide to make whip cream), you can also do all of that with just air! And you don’t have to keep restocking gas cylinders or cartridges to continue to enjoy your favorite NitroBrew’d beverage. Go on and pat yourself on the back for really doing your part in helping Mother Earth heal.

Drawing the air we breathe and infusing that into the beverage is very energy efficient. The benefit of eliminating the large carbon footprint to manufacture and distribute these compressed gas cartridges and the pollution from the spent cartridges is huge in itself. The dollar savings and convenience that result from it are the icings on the cake.
