Well it certainly has been a hot minute since I have posted something new for y’all. But today I have something exciting for y’all! If you know me, you know I am a sucker for a good cup of coffee. For real, give me a great tasting cup of coffee and I can conquer the world! And since the temperatures are rising, what’s more refreshing that a cold brew coffee?! Ladies and gents, I present to you, SkyeLight Coffee Co. Cold Brew Coffee!
What is it?
Star-crossed coffee lovers, Ian and Kimberly, are the founders of Skyelight Coffee Co.. They found inspiration for the company name through Ian’s adventures on the Isle of Skye in Scottland! You will even see on their instagram both of them wearing Scottish plaids to promotional events! With Skyelight Coffee, what makes it different is the way the coffee is brewed. The two use a method called the Ice Drip method which basically means that they do not immerse their grounds to get the coffee. The water is sprayed on top, gets the grounds wet, then what drips out is perfectly balanced cold brew! What is even cooler is that their coffee is even brewed in Denton at West Oak! I love Denton businesses helping each other out!!
The blend used in the current batch is a sweet single origin Ethiopian Koshur blend. And for those of you who are saying “Guzundheit?” it basically means it has fresh notes of blueberries and has a very satisfying taste to it. By using the ice drip method, it also brings out quite a bit more flavor! So perfect refreshing summer drink? I think yes!!
Where is it?
In the mood for a taste of this fine cold brew?! You can find Skylight Cold Brew in Denton at Denton County Brewing Co on nitro tap and concentrate, and at Blue Bag Market bottled! I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ian and Kimberly for the launch party at Blue Bag Market to sample a full bottle of it, and let me say, by far some of the best cold brew I have tasted yet!
How can I get it!
When you go to Denton County Brewing Co, just ask for Nitro Cold brew! You will be handed a refreshing tall glass of smooth with a little foam on top cold brew! If you love it so much and want to take her home, (the coffee that is!) you can buy concentrate to create your own Skyelight creations at home!! Need some ideas? Check out some recipes like the Cold Brew Martini, Irish Iced Coffee, and Vietnamese Coffee!
Don’t have time for a stop? Head over to Blue Bag Market and pick up a 6 pack of Denton’s newest cold brew! Easy, on the go, perfectly proportioned bottled cold brew coffee! This is honestly my favorite option because then I have some of this liquid gold at home for my after workouts, my morning rush, or just when I need a boost!
SO LOVES! Let’s all go show Skyelight some love this week and cool down with a nice glass, mixed drink, or bottle of cold brew! Be sure and take a photo and tag it with #MyDDiary so I can see how you enjoy your coffee and tag @Skyelightcoffee so they can feel the love!
