This is a review of the 'Concentrate' box.

You'll choose an available theme each month. No surprises here, you'll see each item that you'll be getting before you purchase. Each month also includes a card detail information about the items in the box.
The cards typically have information, or How-To's, related to the items inside. This month included more information on cold brew coffee.
Primula Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker - Value $30
The hero item of this box is a cold brew coffee maker from Primula. I'm a big fan of cold brew coffee, so when Liz told me this was an option this month - I jumped all over it!
The entire thing is dishwasher-safe, which is a plus for us. It is a glass container with a non-slip runner bottom and plastic spout.
You'll be putting your beans in the 'Cold Brew Core'. You'll need 1 cup of coarsely ground beans for best results.
You have the option of adding flavor to your brew as well. This flavor mixer will help you disperse whatever additive you might choose.
I went with coffee beans I had received the same day from Amora Coffee (review to come soon!). The process took about 10 minutes in total from nothing to coffee in the fridge - this would have been reduced greatly with a power coffee grinder, though.
The next morning, I had 50 ounces of cold brew coffee to try - and it was delicious and smooth! Cold brewing the coffee reduces acidity by 65%, and since I drink my coffee black, having an increased smoothness is a major bonus to me!
Three more items were included!
Bolivar Bitters - Value $10
If you like to spice up your coffee (or any drink for that matter), they added Bolivar Bitters from Bittercube. I like smooth, dark, black coffee - so I was unsure about adding this. On my third glass, I took the plunge. I added about 5 droplets, which didn't add much of an effect - then added about 10 more drops, which definitely brought the taste out. Not for me, but not undrinkable, either.
Port Living Co. Desk Set - Value ??
I love the next two items. This desk set from Port Living Co. is made from polished concrete - and goes well with my other Bespoke Post items!
The cup is perfect for holding pencils and pens - it's going in my office right after the review!
Keep your small, loose, items in place with this incredible tray - also a new desk addition!
Verdict: I haven't had a disappointing Bespoke Post in quite some time - this one knocks it out of the park again. Not only is the curation spot on - but the products are all high-quality, I don't know how they do it every month! I love coffee, and have grown to love cold brew, so this delivery was exactly what I need for this time of the year - partner that with some beautiful concrete desk accessories and I'm a very happy man.
