If you’re looking for a cold brew worthy of even the most astute coffee enthusiast, look no further than George Howell Cold Brew, exclusively from Joyride. 

Simply put, in the coffee world George Howell is a living legend, not only a pioneer of specialty coffee in America but also the entrepreneur behind his namesake coffee roasting company, George Howell Coffee.

Among his many accomplishments, George Howell is perhaps best known for popularizing truly high-quality coffees to the U.S. East Coast, relocating from the San Francisco Bay Area in 1974 to Boston, where he saw huge opportunity with the complete lack of great coffees options in the city. 

Something that is lesser known by most coffee drinkers is George Howell’s impact on cold coffee globally. 

In 1994, George sold his original Boston-area coffee business, The Coffee Connection, to Starbucks, which in one fell swoop changed the coffee landscape in Boston and around the world.

This sale not only provided Starbucks with a solid footprint in the Boston area, but also gave them ownership of the extremely popular Frappuccino menu item, which at the time was a beverage trademarked by The Coffee Connection. With the acquisition, Starbucks gained the rights to the Frappuccino, which now represents several billion dollars of global annual sales for the company.

With this unparalleled coffee resume, Joyride could not be more honored to work directly with George Howell on cold brew innovation. After years of offering Howell beans to office coffee customers, Joyride’s relationship with George Howell Coffee has risen to a new level by offering George Howell cold brew, on tap and in kegs, for the first time ever. 

We take this responsibility seriously, which is why we’ve been working directly with George to develop a recipe and product that truly is worthy of the Howell name.

This exquisite cold brew is made using a blend of two George Howell Single Origin Coffees: Costa Rica Terrazu and El Salvador Montecarlos Espresso, which are blended by the masters at Howell specifically for cold brewing.
Within just a few days of roasting, Joyride brews these extremely fresh beans at our local brewery, steeping in cold water for 16 hours using our proprietary brewing method. The result is not only something both George Howell and Joyride are extremely proud of - featuring tantalizing notes of dark chocolate and citrus - but it is also an easily accessible way to have some of the world’s best coffee at your fingertips every day, whether you’re drinking coffee in an office, cafe or restaurant. Served on tap at George Howell’s Boston Public Market Cafe, you can have this very same cafe-quality cold brew (including Nitro!) at your fingertips if you live in the greater Boston or New York areas! The kegs you receive when ordering from are identical to those served at George Howell cafes.
Not only are George Howell cold brew kegs a great way to bring quality cold coffee to your office or cafe, but they are also a way to reduce your carbon footprint - with every keg removing the need for 80 to 160 single-serve bottles from circulation with every keg.
