JAPANESE FLASH BREWED: Hi-Collar
Who better to showcase the Japanese method of flash-brewing than Hi-Collar, a Japanese coffee house and cocktail bar? After choosing your coffee beans from a variety of regions and roasters, you get to choose your brewing method. Flash brewed is just one possibility for cold coffee that the caffeine sanctuary offers and it's the boldest and most intensely flavored. The hot coffee is brewed directly over ice cubes for a fresher and fuller body with all the intense aromatics and flavor you expect from a serious cup of joe.
