Hang on to Summer with Paradise Mango Coffee
Paradise Mango Coffee Cold BrewCold brew is coffee made by steeping coarse ground coffee beans in cold water for 12-16 hours. Because of the increased steeping time, cold brew coffee is generally described as smooth, mellow, and low in acid. However, cold brew coffee is also highly concentrated and best enjoyed over ice with milk, water, or other additions to dilute. Even though it takes more time to prepare cold brew coffee, the resulting concentrate is easy to keep in the refrigerator for quick cold coffee drinks and recipes – it is an excellent addition to baked goods and desserts! One of the best things about cold brew coffee is that you don't need fancy equipment or precision to make a delicious batch at home. We recommend starting with a ratio of approximately 3/4-cup coarse ground coffee for every 25 ounces (about 3 cups) of cold, filtered water. Here is everything you need to make the perfect big batch pitcher of cold brew at home. Ingredients
- One pitcher
- 2 cups coarse ground Paradise Mango Twist 100% Kauai Coffee
- 8 cups cold, filtered water
- Add 2 cups of coarse ground coffee to the pitcher.
- Slowly pour 8 cups of filtered water over the grounds.
- Stir the coffee gently until all grounds are saturated.
- Cover the pitcher and let it sit at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 12-16 hours. The longer your coffee steeps, the more concentrated it will become.
- After desired steeping time, filter the grounds out of the pitcher and store cold brew coffee in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.

Paradise Mango Coffee HaupiaHaupia is a simple coconut dessert served at luaus, weddings, and celebrations in Hawaii. It is a dense and starchy coconut pudding that can be served on its own or layered into pies, cakes, and ice cream. Haupia gained popularity after World War II but has a long history in Hawaii. It can be made entirely from plants brought to Hawaii by Polynesian voyagers, including niu, also known as coconut, pia, Polynesian arrowroot, and kō, the Hawaiian word for sugar cane.
- 1 can (14 oz) full fat coconut milk
- 1/2 cup Paradise Mango Twist cold brew concentrate (see recipe above)
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 5 tablespoons cornstarch
- Optional: toasted coconut, diced fruit, or melted chocolate
- Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish with butter or neutral oil.
- Mix the Paradise Mango cold brew concentrate, sugar, and cornstarch in a small bowl until the sugar is dissolved, and cornstarch is incorporated.
- In a medium saucepan, heat coconut milk until it starts to simmer.
- Turn off the heat and pour the coffee, cornstarch, and sugar mixture into the simmering coconut milk and whisk until the mixture thickens.
- Once the haupia thickens to a pudding-like consistency, transfer the mixture into the greased baking dish and chill in the refrigerator until cold and set.
- Once chilled, slice the haupia into squares and serve with optional toppings such as diced fruit, toasted coconut, and/or melted chocolate.
- Optional: To create a layered dessert, repeat steps 1-5 replacing the coffee concentrate with water. This will result in a traditional haupia you can spread on top of the coffee haupia for a layered dessert.
