Secret Squirrel Cold Brew T-shirts

Choose the All-American or Classic t-shirt. T-shirts made by American Apparel, and printed by Mammoth Printshop.

Secret Squirrel Cold Brew KeepCup

I've found my KeepCup makes the making and taking of my cold brew coffee drinks on-the-go even easier. These cups have been tested to 1500 uses. You can keep a lot of paper cups and plastic lids out of the landfill with that many uses.

Secret Squirrel Cold Brew Measuring Cup

Be your own barista with this custom designed measuring pint glass.  It'll be designed by Los Angeles artist Andres Montano. It'll include measure lines, our logo, and sweet wrap-around design.

Secret Squirrel Ultimate Fan

Support American manufacturing and get your face (and social media screename) included on every bottle of our classic Secret Squirrel Cold Brew for the month of July.

The Team

Secret Squirrel Cold Brew Founders

Secret Squirrel Cold Brew - Rebecca & Trevor Smith
Secret Squirrel Cold Brew - Rebecca & Trevor Smith

Trevor and Rebecca Smith are lovers of coffee and coffee culture.  Always experimenting with new ways to enjoy our favorite beverage, we began cold brewing coffee at home years ago: experimenting with various coffee beans, roasting profiles, brew times, filtering options, and of course all the great ways to mix and drink the fantastically smooth and flavorful liquid.

Inspired by the growth of artisanal handmade foods movement and our entrepreneurial spirit, we thought, "This is just too good to keep to ourselves" and Secret Squirrel was born.

Forge Coffee - Douglas Martin

Douglas Martin is the owner and roaster at Forge Coffee, an artisan micro-roastery in Los Angeles. 

Douglas started out as a home coffee roasting enthusiast chasing after the freshest cup of coffee he could find, and found that he enjoyed the artistic and scientific challenge in roasting coffee of different varietals and regions to bring out the best in each of them.  

Douglas now specializes in sourcing and roasting superior single origin specialty coffees which have been sustainably farmed with responsible business practices.  Douglas always roasts with an impeccable attention to detail, and passion for the craft in small batches, carefully profiling each roast to perfection by hand.


Risks and challenges

We have been commercially brewing and bottling cold brew coffee for over 1.5 years. We are well versed in the production and fulfillment process.

We are aware of the risks of this project and are taking steps to mitigate them.

Risks:
--Availability of Hawaiian beans
--Availability of specified growler bottles
--Availability of high volume roaster
--Production challenges created by production increase

Presently the beans, bottles, and production capabilities are available and manageable.
