About Terra Kaffe
Terra Kaffe is a coffee brand founded in 2018 by a group of former baristas, coffee farmers, chefs, and technologists, with headquarters in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. For its ability to offer at-home coffee makers a level of precision previously solely available with industrial, barista-level machines, Terra Kaffe has gained a reputation with coffee industry leaders like Parlor Coffee, Onyx Coffee, Equator Coffee, and other official roaster partners. To date, they’ve raised $18M in funding and sell their products in top-tier retailers like BestBuy, CB2, Saks, Nordstrom, and more.
Keeping it cool with some caffeine alchemy
Founded by LGBTQ+ adventurer and entrepreneur, Cason Crane, and recently featured in a Troye Sivan music video, Explorer cold brew is the only cold brew coffee brand that allows you to customize your caffeine level. Crafted by three award-winning Tastemakers, Explorer’s four caffeine levels are all made from organic, fair-trade and specialty grade coffee beans.
The products are super concentrated — 10x stronger than a regular coffee — so a little bit goes a long way and you’ll be pleased with the value and the premium quality. We loved the versatility of cold brew. You might like yours over ice for the summer, or heated up for the winter, or splashed over ice cream for an affogato! Explorer has a wide and innovative range of cold brew concentrates, chai concentrates, and premium flavor syrups that allow you to craft your perfect cuppa from the comfort and convenience of your home — as part of your ordinary routine or for something special when friends drop by. We loved getting our day off to a cracking start with the big boost offered by The Maverick Extra Caffeine.
But generally speaking, every Explorer product we tried was rich and delicious, no matter the caffeine content. The Daydreamer has basically no caffeine. The Magician Honey Chai Concentrate is simply that — magical! We had a lot of fun mixing our concentrate of choice with our preferred dairy or plant-based milks and syrups (Madagascar Vanilla was our fave), for different times of day, winding down in the afternoons with a calming cup of slightly-spiced chai. And kicking it up a notch after dark with an espresso Martini using The Maverick! Here are some of our favorites for you to explore:
- The Maverick – Extra Caffeine Cold Brew Concentrate
- Cold Brew Wellness Bundle
- The Daydreamer – 99.9% Caffeine Free Cold Brew Concentrate
- The Magician – Honey Chai Concentrate
- Barista Bundle
- The Alchemist – Dirty Spice Chai Concentrate
And if caffeine is not your thing, check out this range of functional elixirs that give you a different kind of boost that helps you lean into wellness, work, or sleep:
- The Dreamer Elixir for Sleep
- The Guardian Elixir for Immunity
- The Optimist Elixir for Relaxation
- The Engineer Elixir for Focus
Explorer literally opens up a whole new world of coffee and tea. We highly recommend it as both something special and as a pantry staple!
