US-based speciality coffee roaster Peet’s Coffee has expanded its ready-to-drink cold brew line up with the introduction of Baridi Black Nitro Cold Brew.

The new canned brew will be available at select Peet’s coffee bars and on-premise partner locations in the US.

Peet’s Coffee Coldcraft marketing and innovation director Gretchen Koch said: “Our popular cold-crafted beverages sold in Peet’s coffee bars continue to drive our innovation and are the inspiration behind our new canned Nitro Cold Brew.

“Nitro was the logical next step after the successful 2016 launch of our bottled Cold Brews. Our new canned Nitro lets us further tap into this fast-growing cold brew category, which Nielsen shows has nearly doubled in the last year, with a true draft experience in a can.

“We are excited for coffee fans to experience the physics of nitrogenisation from our widget technology that gives our Baridi Black cold brew a creamy texture and highlights its delicious chocolatey notes.”

The coffee company claims that its entire cold brew line is crafted with a freshly-roasted East African Baridi blend and has been steeped slowly without using any heat to create a crisp and smooth taste.

The 10.3 fl.oz can of Nitro Cold Brew is equipped with widget technology that infuses nitrogen to enhance the flavour profile of Baridi Blend, as well as to create an ultra-velvet cascade with a creamy finish.

Peet’s Baridi Black Nitro Cold Brew will be available at natural and speciality stores in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada for $4.99. It will also be sold at select national grocery retailers.
