The demand for cold brew coffee calls for innovative new ways for the beverage to be served and illy is offering a simple solution for cafes, restaurants, hotels and other venues in the form of a nitro tap. Cold Brew Aria is a tap handle with an embedded and adjustable valve that takes in ambient air to create nitro cold brew beverages. As such, the space-saving cold brew system requires no cumbersome gas tanks, kegs and eliminates the need for steeping, yet creates richly textured beverages for people to enjoy.
illy is offering this system exclusively with its own cold brew, which is prepared with the Classico blend that features nine kinds of Arabica coffee beans sourced from different countries. illy Cold Brew Aria is also touted as "the only system that can produce either effervescent or regular cold brew with only one tap handle and one coffee source."
