New Signature Coffees from Frothy Monkey Roasting Company

Posted by on May 11, 2022

The Signature Coffee line at Frothy Monkey is getting a facelift and new additions.

Introducing two new members of the Frothy Monkey Roasting Company’s Signature Coffee line – Howler and Midshift. We can’t wait to get these two coffees in your hands or in your cup! Patience and lots of #FrothyLove was poured into the creation of these additions to the Frothy Monkey family of coffees. We’re proud to offer a new espresso roast and half caff option to our customers in our Nashville, Franklin, and Chattanooga cafes, Coffee Perks members, and to our wholesale and online customers. 

As a part of this new launch, we’ve also revamped our Signature Coffee Bag Designs and renamed some Frothy classics. French is now Brute, and Unwind is now Eventide! Read on to find out more about these exciting updates.

New Signature Coffees

Howler – An Elevated Espresso Roast

12South has been our workhorse coffee for drip, espresso and cold brew for many years. Once we started using Cold Brew blend for our kegged and canned Frothy Monkey Cold Brew Coffee, it wasn’t long before we set our sights on developing a coffee specifically for espresso. 

We started with a natural Brazil and a washed Peruvian coffee. Because coffee availability changes seasonally, the blend will change over time but retain the same tasting notes. Our goal was to create a chocolatey and smooth taste profile with subtle fruit notes. We roasted it specifically for a more balanced, approachable shot that decreases the sharp acidic and bitter notes we tasted while brewing other coffees as espresso. What we created is a smooth experience that pairs perfectly with milk. 

The roasting development for Howler took about a month, and was made in small test batches. It challenged our roaster’s and came with a lot of trial and error while we dialed in the correct ratios. These tests included experiments in blending the coffee beans pre-roast or post-roast, ratio variance, and roast time. The process was drawn out further because each batch needed rest for 5-7 days before our roasters could taste the product. 

Now that ratios are dialed in and larger batches can be roasted, we have already started serving Howler in our espresso drinks at Frothy Monkey cafes in Nashville, Franklin, and Chattanooga. If you’re a regular and you recognize the taste of your favorite 12South coffee, you may have noticed! The main difference is that Howler is less acidic, but still so delicious. Because Howler is roasted “lower and slower” it reduces that acidic punch and blends well with your favorite milk option or provides a smoother experience on its own. 

So, why “Howler” you say? Naming this espresso blend was so fun. We tried some word play with Nashville being the Music City, but things like “harmony” and “melody” didn’t fit. We played with location titles and street names and ultimately leaned into our name. So how can we use a monkey name in a cool and modern way? 

When someone threw out “Howler Monkey”, we loved it. Ironically, Howler monkeys are native to Central & South America where a lot of our coffees are imported from and it was a great way to convey the  energy espresso gives you with an expressive “howl”. Our production team members have even started “howling” every time we roast a batch.

Midshift – A Half Caff Coffee Blend

We’re ecstatic to bring a new half caff option to the line of Frothy Monkey Signature Coffees. Without sacrificing flavor and quality, we developed Midshift to offer a more low-key experience for those who want a little afternoon kick, or coffee to sip on through the whole day.

Our friends in the specialty coffee industry inspired and supported us through the development of our half caff roast. Our partnership with Swiss Water Decaf had already produced great results in our Eventide decaf roast and gave us the confidence to pursue a half caff option. 

We used our chemical-free, decaf Swiss Water Process coffee and blended it with a washed Ethiopian coffee. The bright and juicy flavor components of the Ethiopian, balanced out the darker cocoa notes from the Swiss Water Decaf. 

We combine both coffees in a 50/50 blend, after roasting and cooling them separately. This is why you may notice some color differences amongst the beans when you open a bag of Midshift. 

For the name we wanted to evoke the feeling of shifting gears, not fully slowing down, and not ramping yourself up. That afternoon coffee that will get you through the day without keeping you up at night. This coffee is perfect for the folks who are caffeine sensitive, but still want to enjoy a really tasty cup with a little more kick than a full decaf. We also found it to taste amazing with fruit forward desserts, like strawberry pie!

New Names for Old Classics

French is now, Brute!

French Roast has been a staple in the Frothy Monkey Signature line for some time now, and we couldn’t be more proud of how delicious it is. It’s perfect in its approachability and its lovely dark and lucious qualities. By renaming this roast, we wanted to ensure pre-conceptions about French roasted coffee weren’t a concern for consumers and make the bold, full-bodied profile take center stage. We aren’t changing the formula, just the name. 

Brute’s new bold, black look really represents the coffee’s flavor profile. Brute also is a little cheeky in its French reference to the gorilla, ‘la brute’, and ironically named after the “Brute” buckets we use to transfer or store coffee throughout the roasting process.  

Unwind is now, Eventide!

Don’t worry, if you were a big fan of Unwind, this is the same product! With a different name. Nashville’s favorite decaf coffee just got a little facelift. 

While taking the time to reassess the Signature Coffee line design and name, we could see a pattern emerging among the coffees. If you think about the coffee line in the context of our all day-cafes, you can see a pattern emerge for a full-day of coffee. Start your day with the Howler or 12South and get a sip in the mid-day with Brunch or Brute. Midshift is perfect for a mid-afternoon kick, and now Eventide will be your non-caffeinated evening (or anytime) sip when you want that delicious coffee flavor.

Seeing the new line together, the half caff and decaf needed a bit more differentiation, so the name Eventide was proposed. It’s a bit of a nod to nautical language for “evening”, but really a good example of when you’re in the groove, no caffeine needed, and just need a little something to enjoy during “smooth sailing”. Unwinding looks different to everyone and coffee might not fit in to that picture, so this new name should give consumers a bit more context to this friendly roast. 

We have been waiting for this day to arrive and we are proud to reveal our updated line of signature coffees from Frothy Monkey Roasting Co! We would love to hear your thoughts and welcome your feedback. Take a look at the full line up in our online store!

Local Nashville Cold Brew Coffee

Posted by on May 2, 2022

The only cold brew coffee roasted, brewed and canned in Nashville, TN.

Why is our Cold Brew So Good?

Locally Roasted Specialty Grade Coffee

No matter what you’re brewing, baking, or cooking the quality of ingredients makes a difference! At Frothy Monkey, we prioritize quality – in experience and in products. In order to bring you the best cup, we only roast and brew specialty grade coffee. This includes any of our cold brew, signature coffees, blends and specialty series coffees.

Coffee beans, just like many other food products, are graded depending on their quality. Specialty grade coffee is the highest bean classification. When coffee is graded, professionals look for consistencies in features like bean shape, size, and ripeness. The more defects in each batch, the lower grade it is given. 

Because higher grade coffee requires more care and attention to produce, we have the opportunity to build working relationships with farmers and purveyors that share similar core values, to Frothy. When sourcing our green coffee, we focus on partnering with farmers who practice sustainable farming, fair-trade practices, and unique farming or drying methods.

Locally Produced Cold Brew

While coffee is not a Tennessee crop, it is the home to the roasting, brewing, canning, and distribution of Frothy Monkey Cold Brew! Our product is the only cold brew coffee who’s entire production is done here in Nashville. Of course, we couldn’t do it without our partnership with Jackalope Brewing, who brew and can each can at their brewery right here in Nashville. 

You can find Frothy Monkey cold brew at your favorite cafe, and a participating Kroger near you! To make it easy to locate, we’ve created a cold brew locator map. Take a peek at our location pages or locator map to find fresh cans in your neighborhood. 

How It’s Brewed

The process of making cold brew coffee is different from quick brewing methods requiring hot water.  General brewing guidelines for coffee and tea suggest the higher the water temperature, the less time it takes to extract the best flavor. Because brewing cold brew coffee steeps in lower temp water, it requires more time. 

Cold Brew creates a slightly different flavor profile because the solubles from the grounds are extracted slower. Many people comment that cold brew is smoother, less bitter, and sometimes more sweet than a typical drip brewing method. 

There’s a lot of fun science involved in brewing and our Frothy Monkey Roasting Company friends are more than happy to go more in depth about the geeky, albeit cool, chemistry behind it. It’s chemistry and science, and it’s delicious!

Cold Brew Coffee is Great for Most Diets

Need to Stick to Your Diet Plan? 

Hot and Humid days call for something refreshing and energizing, but many beverage options are loaded with sugar or calories. Grab a can of Frothy Monkey cold brew to enjoy a refreshing sip without worry of breaking your diet! 

Cold Brew is naturally calorie, sugar, and gluten free, which makes it ideal for vegan, paleo, keto, and gluten-free diets. Coffee is also 0 points for Weight Watchers and fits seamlessly into those who follow a mediterranean diet.

Canned Cold Brew Coffee is a Great Travel Partner

Anywhere you can go, cold brew can go, too! The convenience of cold brew cans makes opportunities to enjoy, endless. When packed in a backpack or cooler, don’t forget the ice or cool packs to keep your cold brew fresh. Because cold brew is not carbonated, you won’t have to worry about our product going flat.

Imagine reaching the summit of your favorite hike and cracking open a can to cool down. Maybe you need something refreshing during a long bike ride or a little pick me up to hide in the stroller on a family walk. We see you parents out there! 

Coffee’s natural caffeine is a great alternative to energy drinks pumped with artificial sweeteners and flavors. Grab a can or 4-pack before your favorite activity and you’ll be ready to rumble. If you’re close to a cafe, you can always stop in for a cold brew when you dine in or to go! Because most of our cafes have a patio and are close to a neighborhood park, you’re only a few steps away from enjoying your brew in the sunshine. 

How to Brew Cold Brew Coffee at Home 

While we love seeing your face in our cafe, we understand not all morning routines can accommodate an extra stop. If you’re craving cold brew in your morning routine we can help! To stock up for the week, visit your local cafe on Mondays for $4 off 4-packs of cold brew coffee cans. You can also locate the closest Cold Brew retail partner by using the Cold Brew Coffee Locator Map!

If you want to take matters into your own hands, it’s easy to brew at home! With our Cold Brew Coffee Brewing Guide and a bag of our Cold Brew Blend, you’ll be a few steps closer to building your morning bev like a professional.

“A trip back home to Nashville is incomplete without a Frothy Monkey visit! This place is so versatile. I have so many memories studying for exams here, catching up with friends over coffee, birthday dinners, etc. The coffee is excellent, probably the best in the city. And most people know that, but what most people don’t know that their dinner menu is also incredible!!! I recommend the soups, chicken + gnocchi, and salads.

Seasonal Menu Spring + Summer ‘22

Posted by on March 22, 2022

We’ve made it through “third winter” and we’re prepared to bring you an awesome selection of eats, happy hour cocktails, seasonal drinks for spring and summer. Inspired by childhood favorites, travel experiences, and frothy employees, we hope you love them as much as we do!

Some familiar menu options might be a little different, but the quality is still top notch. We’re always looking for ways to elevate dishes or make them more accessible for guests with dietary restrictions. We want to make your experience as stress free as possible. As a result, we are excited to work with The BE-Hive to integrate vegan cheese into our menu. We have adjusted some items to accommodate nut allergens, too!

2022 is already off to an incredible start, but we couldn’t have done it without your continued support. Your love for Frothy is truly appreciated and we see it in your reviews and smiling faces at our all-day cafes. We love serving you and your community, and can’t wait to see new faces in Birmingham and Knoxville later this year

Frothy Monkey Roasting Company’s Brendan Fellenz has another drink on the menu this season. The E.T. is coming at you with a bright and juicy blend of orange juice, cardamom, and mint.

“You’ve got to be careful not to drink this one too quickly,” Brendan says, “It’s so easy to crush.” With a full shot of espresso and refreshing tonic bubbles, Brendan suggests espresso lovers to order one before heading out to play frisbee at Centennial Park or take a walk at Percy Warner Park.

Summer was in full swing at Frothy in East Nashville when Samantha and Kendall created the Electric Monkey. Their drink started as an effort to cool off the staff while the A/C was being repaired and quickly became a cafe favorite.

This twist on lemonade will give you the little pick-me-up you might need on a hot day, or suit your kids perfectly when you stop in for a meal.

“It tastes great and it looks really fun. So, I think it’s going to be a hit with kids and people who don’t want something heavy with milk, like a latte.” Kendall says.

Cold Brew, Sparkling Water, Cherry/ Basil/Lemon Simple Syrup

This unique twist on a Shirley Temple will brighten your day with cold brew, cherry-basil-lemon syrup, and the fizzy finish of sparkling water. Our barista William Theriot from 12South brought this punchy drink to the competition.

“All of our herbal lattes are trending right now like lavender and rosemary. So, I thought we could try to incorporate basil into a fruitier, lighter flavor for summer.” Will says.

Love cold brew but not a huge fan of these flavors? Grab a canned or draft cold brew. Available all year long!
