Summer is finally here and we know that everyone wants to find a new, refreshing summer drink to cool them off. Instead of sweating it out drinking your normal hot coffee drink, try these specialty iced coffee drinks meant for the coffee enthusiast who wants to simultaneously cool off and get their coffee fix.
We all drink our daily cup of coffee every morning and shudder to think what we would do without it. But do you ever think about where this coffee actually comes from? Coffee is only grown in tropical areas in the world, and these regions make up what is known as the Bean Belt.
Coffee is extremely volatile when it comes to its freshness- it can become stale and lose some of its great quality if it is not stored properly after you open a new bag of whole bean or ground coffee.
We sat down with Chris Durai at Bongo Java to learn a bit more about this top notch roaster out of Nashville.
CK: Describe your roasting style in three words.
BJRC: Quality. Integrity. Consistency.
