Espresso vs Black Cold Brew Concentrate
Learn the difference between Chameleon’s classic Black Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate and newest Espresso Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate.
What is Espresso Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate?
Chameleon’s Espresso Coffee Concentrate is its newest organic, dairy-free cold brew coffee offered in a 32oz bottle. Similar to the Ready to Enjoy Espresso Coffee, the Espresso Coffee Concentrate has a bold and robust flavor profile that serves as the perfect foundation for a simple morning cup of coffee or a delicious latte or sweet treat. Just like Chameleon’s other Coffee Concentrates, the Espresso Concentrate is meant to be diluted with water, milk or nut milks.
How does the Black Concentrate & Espresso Concentrate differ?
Both Chameleon Cold-Brew Black Coffee Concentrate and Chameleon Cold-Brew Espresso Coffee Concentrate are concentrated, dairy-free cold brews. The Espresso Concentrate has a bolder dark and robust flavor profile, similar to that of a coffee house espresso shot. The Black Concentrate is not as dark and has hints of toffee and semi-sweet chocolate flavor notes.
Regardless of the roast flavor profiles, all Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee Concentrates have the same caffeine content of 208mg of caffeine per 6oz serving.
