Our offerings range in price and flavor complexity to suit your needs:

All of our coffees are profiled by our Specialty Coffee Association Certified Roaster and are subjected to our rigorous in-house quality control standards to make sure your coffee is roasted to consistently showcase its best qualities!
OUR COLD BREW
Pure Intentions Coffee was the first coffee producer to release canned cold-brew coffee in our region. We perform all our cold brewing and packaging in house using our own expertly roasted coffee, cold brewing at our roastery under strict cleanliness and sanitary standards, and canning with our own canning line and nitrogen doser. Building everything in house allows us complete control over the process and ensures a clean, consistent, high quality product every time you pop the top!
We provide cold brew services for all types of service models:
- Cans: great for markets, grab-n-go style service, or as a supplement to non-alcoholic offerings at your bar or brewery! We are currently canning our Classic Still cold brew coffee.
- Kegs: we provide Nitro Draft Style or Classic Still cold brew in standard American Sankey 1/6 barrel kegs (D type coupler). If you've got an open nitro line on your bar, we are a plug-and-play option to get it generating revenue again! Have an extra line but don't have the nitro set up yet? We can help with that! We provide a full suite of draft-tech services to transfer your lines to cold-brew coffee service.
- Kegerators: we provide one or two faucet kegerators with full turn-key installation to get coffee on tap in your location with no draft line experience or equipment required! This equipment is super easy to install and operate, and only requires a standard electrical outlet and a little space on your floor plan!
