We met up with Ryan Hiebendahl, vice president of sales at Sail Away Coffee. Also Joining us was coffee expert and "shaman", Mike Love from Coffee Labs. Both Ryan and mike gave us an education on the art of cold brewing which interestingly, has many similarities to craft beer brewing. The sail away slogan: ""live young"...Sail Away pairs it free-spirited approach to flavor with a well traveled palate."
The crew at Sail Away focus on single-origin roasts, blends and signature cold brew coffee. This episode we stuck to cold brew which is trending. Yep, Dunkin' has joined the band wagon. We've had cold brew before; however, flavor profiles range from amazingly smooth and balanced to "what were you thinking!" Ryan tasted us through what we thought were some of the best cold brew's we've experienced. We tasted through five, nitrogen cold brews. The cans included sweetened, unsweetened, horchata, salt and caramel and pumpkin chai. We were very skeptical on the pumpkin chai; however, ryan collaborated with Amy Rothstein owner of Dona Drinks to create an amazingly tasty and balanced cold brew. "Balanced" being the key to great cold brews. Sail Away has also "sailed" into the craft cocktail movement utilizing their cold brews. We're eager to try!
Big thanks to crew at Sail Away, we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise!
