The A to Z of Chameleon Cold-Brew

Learn all of Chameleon Cold-Brew’s tools, tips, and techniques when it comes to being an organic cold brew coffee brand.

As cold brew connoisseurs, our vocabulary can be confusing to the  everyday coffee drinker. Through our recipes, blog posts or even the language on our label, we want to ensure that all makers not only understand our messaging, but can fully connect to our brand. Whether you need a quick definition, or are looking to learn about all-things coffee related , we present to you our Chameleon Cold-Brew A to (almost) Z  glossary!

Adaptogens

Non-toxic plants and herbs that act as the body’s natural healers, helping reduce physical, chemical, and biological stressors. Some of our favorites (such as turmeric and ashwagandha) can be found in our Adaptogenic Ombre Waffles  pictured below!

Three adaptogens that add a touch of color to these cold brew waffles are turmeric, ashwaghanda and cordyceps.

Brewing Method

Each of Chameleon Cold-Brew’s products is steeped low and slow with air-roasted, certified organic Arabica beans.

Caffeine

Coffee and caffeine being linked together is nothing new, however many are unsure of how caffeine levels change when referring to cold brew. A cup of Chameleon, on average, holds almost three times the amount of caffeine than a normal cup (talk about a buzz!)

10 oz Ready to Enjoy Cold-Brew: 
Caffeine Content =  230 mg/10 fl oz

32 oz Black Concentrate and 1 Gallon Bag In Box: 
Caffeine Content =  208 mg/6 fl oz serving

Direct Trade

This process allows for us to work with our farmers through a one-on-one relationship. In doing so, we cut out third-party buyers and sellers and focus on key relationships that help strengthen every part of the cold-brew process.

Ethos

From bean to bottle, we aim to be resourceful and ignite the #Maker in every customer. We proudly stand by our choice of glass bottles, which we hope encourage Chameleon drinkers to re-use in the best ways possible.

Chameleon Cold-Brew strives to provide ethically-sourced coffee, sold in glass bottles perfect for reducing, reusing and recycling .

Farmers

The key players in making Chameleon Cold-Brew the coffee brand it is today.  We proudly pay a premium price for our beans and as a general rule, we choose to work with farmers that provide their workers with housing, a livable wage, and a reasonable work schedule.

Guatemala

Where bean to brew comes alive! Our coffee farm in Guatemala runs on the Chameleon Cold-Brew commitment of sustainable sourcing.

Hot

Whether it’s setting some concentrate on the stove, or pre-heating your mug with hot water, our bottled brew can easily change temperatures to fit whatever you’re in the mood for. Check out our easy steps on how to transition your cold brew into a hot cup of cold brew.
