Conceived and launched during the COVID-19 pandemic, Explorer Cold Brew makes delicious cold brewed 'super concentrate' that comes in four caffeine levels. It's the first specialty coffee company that lets customers choose their caffeine level, and still enjoy specialty-grade, organic, and fair trade Arabica coffee. Moreover, unlike traditional decaf coffee, Explorer uses the premier (and chemical-free) Swiss Water Process for its No Caf and Low Caf. With so many ways to drink coffee, Explorer's 'super concentrate' gives you versatility (you can use it to make any cafe-style coffee you like) and flexibility to drink it anytime of day (or night) with the caffeine level that's right for you. Plus, it's black and unsweetened so that you can make it the way you like it. Explorer is sold direct-to-consumer (either as a one-time purchase or subscription) in boxes of 12 2oz bottles, and each bottle makes 1-2 coffees. Or, you can get a Starter Pack, and try one of each caffeine level.
Since its public launch a few weeks ago, Explorer has already sold out twice, and it was nominated for BevNet's 'Best of 2020' awards. Additionally, in fitting with Explorer's mission to fuel the world, a percentage of sales fund clean water access through a partnership with charity: water - with over $1,000 already donated. And the best is that there's a lot more to come! Explorer will soon be announcing a larger format super concentrate, as well as a line of premium 'flavor elixirs' that allow coffee lovers to further customize their experience.
Explorer Cold Brew was founded by adventurer and Everest summiteer Cason Crane during the COVID-19 pandemic. Quarantined in his Brooklyn apartment, he was frustrated by constant insomnia from his cold brew coffee obsession, but couldn't find a great lower-caf alternative. Why should caffeine be 'one size fits all', especially in a drink as versatile as coffee? So he worked with three award-winning coffee Tastemakers to craft a specialty 'super concentrate' that would let customers choose their caffeine level. But it doesn’t stop there: not content to simply address the needs of coffee drinkers, Explorer also funds access to clean water for one person for a month with every box sold.
