What’s your morning drink? I’ve tried a hundred types of coffee, as I’m sure you have, but then I discovered the game-changing Explorer Cold Brew and was hooked…
Explorer is a LGBT-owned and operated coffee and tea roasting small business based in Brooklyn. They only use ingredients that are organic and fair trade (their coffee beans are hand-picked in Ethiopia and Peru), and their team works to deliver the highest quality coffee and tea drinks straight to your door. I LOVE their concentrated cold brew and drink it all the time.
Explorer coffee is super easy to make. You simply add two ounces of concentrate to a cup of milk or water (hot or cold). That’s it! I make all kinds of drinks — classic iced coffee, steaming hot coffee, iced or hot lattes by adding milk, you can even make cocktails! Explorer’s cold brew concentrate is actually similar to a cold-pressed espresso shot, but with that low acid, smooth cold brew finish. So good.
And how cool is this: The concentrate comes in four caffeine levels — No Caf, Low Caf, Reg Caf and Extra Caf — so you can choose what you’re in the mood for. If you want to try them all out, you can order a four-pack gift box for $20.
Once you fall in love with one (or more), you can get a larger 16-ounce bottle or 32-ounce bottle to keep handy at home. And if you’d like to subscribe, you get 10% off every order and never have to worry about running out of coffee. (You can cancel, skip or pause anytime.)
One of my favorite parts about Explorer is their mission. They partner with Charity Water, so part of every Explorer Cold Brew purchase goes towards helping people receive clean water each month.
Which one of their coffees would you try? This one is next on my list.
Bonus for all readers: Explorer is offering 20% off any order with code COJ20, good until February 28th. Explorer is a really one-stop-shop for a ‘coffee shop at home,’ including three all-natural flavor syrups to sweeten coffee, and four chai flavors (with two caffeine-free options). Thank you so much, Explorer!
