If you are ever traveling through the area you’ll naturally want to find a great coffee shop in Boise, Idaho. But one of the best is not actually IN Boise – at least not all the time. What am I talking about? I’m talking about Café Mulé, an incredible coffee service that is focused exclusively on providing cold brew draft coffee for hikers on the trails around Boise, Idaho. The creators of Café Mulé had an amazing idea and kept working until they made it happen. Today I’m chatting with Matty and Andrea of Café Mulé about their unique approach to coffee, hiking, and the combination of the two.

In this episode, we chat with Gino Corrales. Gino has a culinary background, but has been a professional coffee roaster for the past 10 years. Gino is also a homebrewer who loves experimenting, so we discussed Fall beers, specifically pumpkin ales as well as adding coffee to beers and the best way to do so.
Episode 24 – State of the Brewnion is a short episode where we recap some recent happenings, make some requests for call-ins and guests and discuss a couple cold brew cocktails. We’re hoping to get an episode about cold brew cocktails going soon.
Today we discuss the new Cold Brew Avenue Stainless Steel Cold Brew system and the updated design of the new patent pending filter plate. We’ve had quite a few questions over the years about these systems, so we figured we’d take an episode to address some of the common questions we receive and discuss some of the features and changes to the stainless steel cold brew systems.
In this episode, we talk with Jason Gershowitz from Coffee Counselor in Maryland. We learn about how Coffee Counselor got started, and their wild beginning when they were brewing and serving up to 30 different beans, roasts and origins. That’s all well and good, but the meat of the conversation turns to steps and processes that Jason and Coffee Counselor are taking in order to get their cold brew product FDA approved for up to a 90 day shelf life. There are many different options available out there and they could change based on your location, so Jason stresses the importance of working with a process authority in order to find the right steps and processes that will work for your company.
