We recommend a richer coffee such as Alma Coffee's Ember Dark Roast to make the cold brew here, but any somewhat strong-tasting coffee that tends toward nutty, chocolatey, or toasty flavors will also work. If you prefer a different flavor profile though, you can use any coffee from your Trade subscription to make the cold brew concentrate.
