While Van Houtte® offers an innovative cold brew system, this popular cold beverage is actually a centuries-old brew method with as rich a history as Van Houtte®.
The first evidence of true cold-brewed coffee can be traced back to the 1600s. Reputedly introduced to Japan by Dutch traders from Indonesia, the method was likely developed as a means for producing and transporting large quantities of coffee, which could later be reheated.
Japan developed the process into an artful craft, known today as Kyoto-style cold brew. Within a tower-like structure the coffee is extracted using a slow-drip method, resulting in a subtle and aromatic flavour.
Today, the Van Houtte® cold brew coffee maker gives you the power to become your own cold brew master. Enjoy this smooth, well-balanced coffee option at home or on the go!
