Five Washington State locations began carrying Woods Cold Brew in early March
Bellingham, WA—March 27, 2015—The Woods Coffee today announced that its Cold Brew coffee is now carried in all five Whatcom County Haggen grocery stores in Washington State. Cold Brew has been served at Woods Coffee locations since 2012. This is the first time it has been available outside of Woods’ own stores.
“Our growing partnership with Haggen is a relationship we’ve really appreciated, and a natural fit between two Pacific Northwest brands,” said Wes Herman, Woods Coffee owner. “With Woods Cold Brew in all of the Whatcom County Haggen locations, Whatcom County residents can now grab a Cold Brew just about anytime and anywhere.”
After serving Cold Brew coffee at all of its locations since 2012, Woods released a single-serve, 10.5-ounce bottle version of the popular drink in July of 2014. The company has introduced a new bottle design for the launch into Haggen stores.
Each batch of Woods Coffee Cold Brew is brewed using its own unique blend of coffee, taking a full 12 hours to brew. The extended brewing process results in a smoother taste, with two thirds less acidity than standard coffee. After the brewing is complete, Cold Brew is delivered from its Lynden, WA headquarters, where it is made fresh daily, to each Woods location.
“Our Cold Brew coffee is smooth and full of flavor. It’s one of my favorites,” said Herman. “Cold Brew is a popular drink with Woods guests. We’re looking forward to introducing it to Haggen shoppers.”
Cold Brew is Woods’ second product sold by Haggen. The grocery store began selling Woods’ whole-bean coffee in December.
Woods opened its first store inside Haggen in 2011, in Bellingham’s Sehome Square. The company will open its second coffee shop inside Haggen in April, in Bellingham’s Barkley Village.
