Generally speaking, a small cold brew is going to cost you more than a small hot or iced coffee. Keep in mind prices range due to a lot of variables, but the time and labor behind making (good) cold brew is always more than the time and labor of making (good) hot coffee. We’re talking hours and hours versus minutes. Some shops dilute their cold brew concentrate and some leave it full nelly (hence an uptick in price and shakiness). Some shops purchase kegs and others just purchase beans and make the brew themselves. Some source from large roasters and some from small-batch specialty roasters. Some accept tips and some do not.
