Mana Cold Brew delivers unadulterated coffee magic in recyclable packaging
Move over, goon sack. These guys are pouring the kind of boxed happiness that will kickstart your day in the most delicious way possible.
Pure, smooth, cold-brewed coffee delivered to your door in a snappy little cardboard box that can be lugged anywhere – the aptly named Mana Cold Brew ticks all the boxes. Brewed and packaged by hand in Melbourne, Mana can be snuck into the work fridge, taken on a roadtrip, thrown into a bike pannier or backpack, popped in the camping esky or simply assume pride of place in your home fridge for cold brew on-call. Matambo specialty beans are grown by a cooperative of Colombian coffee farmers and ethically sourced by Clark St Roasters to be cold brewed in small batches and packaged in 1.5-litre eco-friendly cartons.
The process is lengthy, but worth it. Freshly ground coffee is steeped in water for 12–18 hours before being released through a two-stage filtration process. The result is a high-caffeine, additive-free, naturally sweet brew that highlights the bean’s complex flavours while avoiding any acidic or bitter aftertaste. Drink it cold on a sultry afternoon, hot on a winter’s morning, with any sort of milk and any sort of sweetener. Fresh, limited batches are brewed weekly to avoid waste and sent out in non-bleached bulk packaging to help reduce single-use plastics. Order your box online or head to SuperPharmacyPlus IGA X-press in Stafford to get your fix.
