Cold brews are the latest rage in coffee and The Refuge is jumping on board. The café located in the Melrose District now offers two cold brews: a house cold brew with The Refuge’s dark roast and a nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee on tap, featuring Yirgacheffe Ethiopian beans.

The house cold brew is made in-house and takes 24 hours to make. The nitrogen infused is not done in house, but has become very popular because of its high caffeine content.

The Refuge is a social enterprise of Catholic Charities Community Services that operates a workforce program to help refugees and veterans get back on their feet. Learn more at
