Good Trip Coffee Celebrates Women Coffee Farmers with New Cold Brew Line
The Denver-based startup unveils ethically sourced ready-to-brew cold brew coffees, donates $1/pack towards education for women
Launching into the booming cold brew category, Good Trip Coffee stands out with equitable sourcing, eye-catching packaging, and one of the only ready-to-brew cold brew products on the market. Their compostable pouches, called Brew Bags, contain signature recipes for making batches of cold brew at home without special equipment, and are available online.
"Compared to bottled cold brews at the grocery store, making cold brew at home is fresher, more flavorful, often healthier, and tailored to you," says Angela Oehlerking, co-founder of Good Trip Coffee Co. "Our cold brew recipes are made with exceptional coffees and whole, organic ingredients, free of chemical flavorings and sugars. You get fresh, full-flavored, naturally sweet cold brew, in flavors that are truly unique – think café-inspired cold brew mixology, served straight from your fridge."
The company is especially proud of their coffee origins and is committed to sourcing exclusively from women-owned cooperatives through partnerships with Vega Coffee and Corvus Coffee. Through March, they're donating $1/pack to a scholarship fund that affords cooperative members and their children access to higher education in Nicaragua. "It's something you can feel good about supporting, beyond great tasting cold brew," says Angela. "You're making a tangible impact on the lives of these women and their communities."
Good Trip Coffee's varieties include the Organic Infusion flavors Beach Bum Blondie, Darjeeling Chai, Mayan Cocoa, and Mint Melt-Away, and the Single Origin offerings Nicaragua Miraflor and Rwanda Izuba. All are available in two sizes, which make 8 and 12 servings (8oz) of cold brew, respectively.
"We used to drink bottled concentrates ourselves for the convenience, but our Brew Bags are just as convenient. If you have a pitcher and a refrigerator, you're good to go," says Angela. At around $2.00 a serving, it's also more affordable than making a coffee run. "I like to think it's the best of both worlds, convenience without compromising on craftsmanship."
Customers can make one-time purchases or subscribe through the website, and can choose to stick with their favorites or explore new flavors and origins each month.
"The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Our customers love the smooth and complex taste of our cold brews, the simplicity, and the origin story behind our coffee."
