S T U F F : P R O D U C T S IT'S IN THE BAG Spyhouse Coffee Roasters has customized the highly coveted hand-crafted Apolis market tote, a sturdy and reusable bag made with natural jute fiber and a waterproof lining. And when they say "sturdy," they mean it—the bags are made to last at least eight years and carry over 100 pounds. It also holds almost twice what a typical grocery paper bag can handle. Vegetable-tanned leather straps and antique nickel rivets provide the perfect finishing touches. Apolis works with an artisanal co-op that provides fair-wage jobs for Bangladeshi women. You'll feel good about reducing single-use bag waste, and your purchase will help change people's lives. BREW BETTER, WASTE LESS Cold brew is big business—but is it eco-friendly? With Cold Brew Avenue's new completely reusable stainless-steel large-batch cold-brew system, it can be. This revolutionary setup and its patent-pending filter are made entirely of 304 brewer's-grade stainless steel, one of the most sanitary, easy-to- clean, and durable materials on the market. The design eliminates the need for paper filters and messy mesh bags, and brews anything from 5 to 50 gallons. With a stainless-steel ball valve for controlling the flow of filtered cold brew from the system, and a custom pickup tube to ensure maximum extraction, you might just find a new address for your cold-brew system. SEASON'S GREETINGS Perfect for the holiday season, Sweetbird Sugar-free Gingerbread syrup contains no artificial colors or GMOs, and is approved by the Vegan Society. Combining buttery texture and real ginger, the experts at Sweetbird have created a sugar-free syrup with an authentic flavor and pleasingly fiery taste. As it's one of the company's top-selling syrups, Sweetbird understands that gingerbread really comes into its own in the winter months, whether used in lattes or added to white and dark hot chocolates. FEEL THE FLASH This is not cold brew; this is Flash Brew. Flash Brew starts with Verve Coffee's directly traded Ethiopian and Southern Colombian coffees, perfectly engineered water, and state-of-the-art craft brewing equipment. After precise extraction through a proprietary hot-brewing process in an oxygen-free environment, it's flash chilled and infused with nitrogen. Nitrogen removes any remaining oxygen, keeping the coffee ultra-fresh and providing a creamy mouthfeel. 64 barista magazine
