It seems like cold-brewed coffee is all the rage these days. And why not? The sun is out, and we're all looking for a summer refresher that also puts some pep in the step.
The absolute best cold brews that we've tried were made with this humble Japanese appurtenanace - The Mizudashi Cold Brew Coffee Pot. It takes all the mess and fuss out of the cold brewing process, and sits comfortably in the fridge, always at the ready. The super-special fine mesh screen is the secret weapon on this tempered glass beauty, and requires nothing else. Add coffee, add water, brew overnight, repeat all summer.
You can pick one up in any of our stores, or get one online here: http://www.ritualroasters.com/store/coldbrew/
Oh, and be sure to take a gander at our foolproof brew guide made especially for the Mizudashi! http://www.ritualroasters.com/brew-guide/

All this week, leading up to the incredible Maker Faire event in San Mateo, we will be taking a trip down memory lane with our beloved Sputnik.
This will be the coffee service trailer's last public appearance as the offical mobile outpost of Ritual Coffee Roasters. :(
Stop by Maker Faire to grab some excellent coffee, play with robots, and pay your respects.
Sputnik has given all he could over the last decade, and we want to send him off with a fitting tribute.
We'll have special limited-edition tee shirts, featuring a tribute to Sputnik, available at Maker Faire (while they last!)
Check back every day this week for historic Sputnik photos and stories,
leading up to the de-commissioning party happening all weekend! Get your tickets ASAP http://makerfaire.com/
