Cold Brew Cafe

This coffee news was too good not to share: Sponsored by Kahlúa, the number one coffee liqueur in the world, Rethink Food is opening up a pop-up coffee shop this month in Seattle, Denver, and Boston. The cafe will be a hyper-sensory experience where ticket holders will learn about Rethink Food’s charitable mission, meet local roasters in their area, and of course, try tasty cold brew and Kahlúa cocktails. All proceeds will benefit non-profit, Rethink Food.

“The Cold Brew trend is a celebration of everything we love at Kahlúa and reinforces our brands mission to make every day more fun. Kahlúa remains the number one coffee liqueur in the world and our support for the Cold Brew Café will give visitors a tangible way to celebrate the already natural and refreshing connection between the two.”

– Troy Gorczyca, Kahlúa Brand Director

What is Rethink Food?

Simply put, Rethink Food is a non-profit organization that transforms unused food from grocery stores, restaurants, and farmers markets into low or no-income meals for New York City families in need. It’s a wonderful way of reducing waste while helping those in need. I’ve actually donated to them a few times over the last two years.

Tickets are on sale for the Cold Brew Café starting today and can be purchased at

  • Pioneer Square, Seattle: Saturday, Oct. 13 – Sunday, Oct. 14
  • River Arts North District, Denver: Saturday, Oct. 20 – Sunday, Oct. 21
