Organic Coffee Roasters Collaborates with Iconic Connecticut Brewery to Create Espressway Cold-Brew Coffee Stout

Connecticut's Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters partners up with the state's Two Roads Brewery to Create Espressway Cold-Brew Coffee Stout. This is a game changer! 

Fairfield County’s first and only 100% USDA* Certified Organic & Artisan Coffee Roaster, Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters, continues to evolve as the region’s premiere coffee roaster, supplying their small batch roasted coffee to specialty markets and high-end restaurants and cafes throughout the state. Owner Ed Freedman recently added Running Rapids Ready-to-Drink Cold Brew Coffee to his growing repertoire. Now he'll show his customers an entirely different brew combining his premium roasts with Two Roads Brewery's newest creation, Espressway Cold-Brew Coffee Stout. Here Espressway merges the flavors of Shearwater’s locally-roasted, organic Ethiopian/Sumatra blend of coffee beans with a rich oatmeal stout utilizing a proprietary cold brew beer process.

The folks at Two Roads’ underwent extensive coffee training with Shearwater in order to secure the right blend of beans and brew. From “coffee cupping” classes to extensive tasting sessions with Ed, months were spent finding the perfect coffee to complement the rich, full-bodied stout taste.

Espressway will be sold in all Two Roads markets on draft starting in late February and in six pack bottles starting in mid-March. The draft version will also be previewed at their first annual Winter Classic outdoor event at the brewery on February 20th.

Shearwater is family owned and run. With over two decades of coffee roasting experience, Ed took his passion for producing high quality coffee to a full USDA certified organic 2,000 square foot production facility in Trumbull in 2013. Shearwater Organic Coffee Roaster’s commitment to creating a premium organic product, and their presence as a local artisan producer, is the cornerstone of their success.
