Stockholm-based cold brew coffee company have teamed up with Baileys finally bring great cold brew coffee to Swedes. In the process they are doing a cool pop-up in Stockholm and they are treating us to some great drink recipes to try at home, keep reading.
Cold brew coffee has been a big thing in the US for a long time by now but the trend hasn’t gotten its hold on Sweden until now that is. Starting tomorrow on the 31st of May until the 4th of June Swedish cold brew coffee brand It’s Cold Brew and Baileys are teaming up to kick off the summer with a pop-up coffee place. It is time for Swedes to embrace this great style of coffee as well.
But don’t worry if you don’t happen to be in Stockholm this weekend. Baileys and It’s Cold Brew have created some great drink recipes that you can make at home, but first a few more words about the pop-up.
The Co-lab Pop-Up
The pop-up is called Co-lab and it is a collaboration between It’s Cold Brew and Baileys. Together they will set up shop inside Morfar Ginko on Swedenborgsgatan on Södermalm in Stockholm between the 31st of May and 4th of June. At the same time as the pop-up starts the street where it is held gets turned into a no-car zone for the summer which makes this a great place to go even if you don’t love cold brew coffee (but you do, so don’t mind that).
At Co-lab you will get to try a selection of coffee drinks where cold brew coffee is flavored with the classic Baileys liqueur. Baileys is a classic drink to serve with coffee but it works just as good with cold brew as it does with regular coffee. So the idea is to get Swedes to try some cold coffee this summer. That shouldn’t be a hard sell since Swedes is one of the top coffee drinkers in the world.
In addition to the drinks you can attend a workshop where you will learn how to brew your own cold brew and create your own drink with Baileys, for workshop tickets head over here. Luckily Baileys and It’s Cold Brew have treated us to a few drink recipes to try at home. The recipes are created by Sara Hultberg who became Pastry Chef of The Year in Sweden, 2014. Enjoy!
