Bizzy cold brew has been on my radar for a while now. I first heard about Bizzy through one of my YouTube subscribers who asked if I had tried it yet. Coincidentally, about a week later one of the folks from Bizzy contacted me to see if I'd like to review their cold brew.

I accepted, and here I am today with my review of Bizzy's cold brew coffee concentrate.

Please note: I received this product for free. Although I do my best to review everything as objectively as possible and only publish reviews for products I think my readers will enjoy, I did receive this product for free. 

About Bizzy Cold Brew

Bizzy cold brew was created by two gentlemen (Alex and Andrew) who were looking for an energy supplement that was healthy, convenient, and of course, effective. They stumbled upon cold brew coffee in 2013 and began their quest to try and make the best ready-to-drink cold brew coffee possible.

Bizzy's cold brew concentrate is unique because it is a blend of light, medium, and dark roast coffee, brewed over 18 hours. The coffee used is also USDA Certified Organic, with beans sourced from Central and South America.

Taste

Even though Bizzy is meant to be diluted, I found that it was in its best form when consumed straight. The bright, fruity flavors were prevalent at the front of the tongue, while the chocolate notes were stronger in the aftertaste.

When diluted, I wasn't really impressed with the flavor because it was really tough to find a good balance.

The mouthfeel was also a bit disappointing. Not as clean as I had hoped for, since it left somewhat of a gritty taste in the mouth.

Score: 3/5

Price

A 16oz bottle of Bizzy cold brew goes for $9.99 on their website, excluding shipping. If you dilute the drink with the suggested amount of water, this makes 6 cups of coffee.

It's also available on Amazon, and with free shipping for Prime members it may be a better deal. Make sure to check Amazon for the most up-to-date pricing info.

I think the product is priced right if you enjoy their diluted recipe suggestion. However, I'm not one of these people, so in this sense, the value goes down for me just a little bit.

Score: 4/5

Ingredients

Just organic coffee and water. These simple ingredients give Bizzy a perfect score in the ingredients department.

Score: 5/5

Availability

Only available in the U.S. currently, and as far as I know it's also only available for purchase online.

Score 4/5

Final Thoughts

To me, taste is the most important element when evaluating cold brew coffee, and unfortunately Bizzy fell a little short for me in this regard.

As I mentioned in the video review, the concentrate by itself tasted a little bit unbalanced to me and worse when it was diluted. While the Bizzy concentrate wasn't necessarily bad from a flavor perspective, the aftertaste wasn't good enough to make me want to go out and purchase Bizzy as a ready-to-drink cold brew option.

There are simply too many cold brew options out there for me to say definitively that this is one of the better ones.

Still, it's not one of the worst ones either, and you may love it. After all, we all have different taste preferences.

So if you have a hard time finding other cold brew concentrates locally, throw some Bizzy into your Amazon shopping cart and give it a try yourself!
