Fire Department Coffee Releases Spirit-Infused Nitro Cold Brew

Fire Coffee

Rockford, Illinois-based Fire Department Coffee made its entry into the ready-to-drink category Sept. 20 with the release of Fire Dept. Coffee Nitro Cold Brew.

The cornerstone of the line, Nitro Irish Coffee, is a non-alcoholic canned Nitro Cold Brew infused with real whiskey and cream. It is available, alongside three additional varieties: Nitro-Charged Latte, Nitro-Charged Shellback Espresso and Nitro Vanilla Bean Bourbon, each in 7 oz single serving cans.

Distribution will expand to grocers and other nationwide retailers in the coming months.

“Customers have been asking for a simpler, faster way to experience their favorite Fire Dept. Coffee on-the-go, so the introduction of Nitro Cold Brew is our answer to their call,” said Luke Schneider, founder and CEO.

“With this release we’re not only offering a new way to experience our coffee – but we’re also bringing our proprietary, non-alcoholic spirit-infusion process to the ready-to-drink category for the first time.”

In its recent survey of 500 Americans, Fire Dept. Coffee found:

  • Americans are experiencing pumpkin spice burnout – More than 37 percent of Americans surveyed in August, before peak pumpkin spice season even started, said they were already tired of hearing about pumpkin spice.
  • Eleven percent of consumers surveyed said they would consider breaking up with a partner if their views over the taste of pumpkin spice differed with the majority of those saying they would consider breaking up with a partner if they loved the taste of pumpkin spice.
  • Ten percent of Americans surveyed admitted to arguing with a friend or family member over their opinion of pumpkin spice coffee.
  • Only one in four consumers surveyed say they prefer pumpkin spice-flavored lattes over traditional lattes.
  • Thirty-four percent of Americans surveyed ranked apple pie as their favorite flavor, among a selection of five popular fall flavors. Only 23 percent of Americans surveyed said their favorite fall flavor is pumpkin spice.
