Cold Brew at Home 101
Customizing your Chameleon Cold-Brew is easy with the right tools! Check out our tips and tricks for mixing and enjoying your favorite cold brew coffee.
1. Perfectly Measured Grounds
Our cold brew pods are easy to use— simply add a pod and 9oz. of cold, filtered water into a mason jar for a strong, ready-to-enjoy cold brew or add two pods and 12 oz. of water for a cold brew concentrate. Add your mason jar to your refrigerator in the evening and wake up to your very own DIY cold brew!
On-the-go and need some cold brew at a moment’s notice? Grab a Chameleon Cold-Brew Ready-to-Enjoy bottle in 5 smooth and bold flavors: Black, Vanilla, Mexican, Espresso and Mocha. This 10oz. companion is perfect for fueling you through your day ahead– and ready to enjoy straight out of the fridge!
2. Simple Storage
In order to maintain the high-quality flavor profiles and ensure brewing consistency, your coffee should be stored correctly according to its coffee type.
Our liquid products, including Ready-to-Enjoy Coffees, Cold Brew Concentrates, and your brewing Cold Brew Coffee Pods, should always be refrigerated before consumption. The shelf life of our Ready-to-Enjoy and Concentrate coffees is 9 months, and once opened they should be consumed within 2-3 weeks.
Whole Bean Coffee requires more specific storage methods and have a longer shelf life of 1 year. While there are many methods for whole bean storage, we recommend storing your beans in an air-tight, dark container or keeping the beans properly sealed in their original packaging.
3. Mix it just the way you like!
Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee Concentrates are perfect for creating your own unique cup of cold brew each morning. This 32 oz. bottle comes in five bold, concentrated flavors including Black, Vanilla, Mocha, Pecan and Caramel.
While you can mix your concentrate any way you’d like, we recommend using a 1:1 ratio of 6oz. of any concentrate flavor and adding in 6oz. of your preferred liquid of choice, from water to milk or non-mylks. Stick to this simple mix or add in more ingredients for cold brew at any time of day!

4. Brew it your way
Start from scratch with whole coffee beans and make a hot cup of coffee (or even cold brew) just the way you like it! Use your go-to coffee maker or try making coffee with our favorite methods: Chemex, Pour Over and French Press. Our three Whole Bean Coffee varieties, including Single Origin, Dark, Black & Bold, and The Day Breaker, can be brewed using any method. However, these are a few of our favorite Chameleon Whole Bean Coffee and brewing method pairings:
Single Origin: Pour Over
Dark, Black & Bold: French Press
