Goodbye Spring, hello Summer! The days are growing longer and the California sun has finally shown it’s true colors- it is officially steaming hot! With that being said us girls at the warehouse are taking every possible precaution to beat the heat. Since coffee is one of our main food groups around here (but really) I thought it would be a good idea to try our hand at some cold brew. Could there be a better solution? I think not!
Through my many wanderings on our ever loved Instagram, I came across Seaworth Coffee Co.- an all natural, american made coffee company based in Costa Mesa, California. Each cold brew is hand-crafted, they use fair trade organic coffee beans, AND they repp the golden state. In short, we love them! Seaworth was kind enough to send us over a care package of their amazing product so that we could try it ourselves- I only have one word for you- SOLD!
Bobbi, Meg, and I selected our usual favorites to pair with Seaworth's Single Fin Sludge cold brew and the results were soooo yummy! We thought we would give you guys a few ideas if you need some cold brew inspiration so here are our top picks!
Bobbi's Choice (served in a wide 16oz)
- 6oz Seaworth Single Fin Sludge
- 6oz Unflavored Coconut Milk
- 1tsp. Sweet Beet (all natural locally made sweetener)
- Just a pinch of cinnamon
It was too amazing for words.
My pick: (served in 24oz)
- 8oz Seaworth Single Fin Sludge 
- 8oz Coconut Milk
- 1/2 oz Seaworth Coconut Simple Syrup
If you're looking for a punch of amazing flavor without the fuss of anything too sweet, this little recipe is the one for you.
Last but not least, Meg's Cold Brew: (served in regular mouth 16oz)
- 6oz Single Fin Sludge
- 6oz Coconut Milk
- 1tbsp. Raw Honey (locally made by Gold Country Honey Farms)
 Honey is always a good idea. Always.
All three of our brewskies were so so good. Seriously, we wished we had more to go around! A giant thank you to Seaworth Coffee Co. for obliging us with such an amazing cold brew. Be sure to check these guys out- they're going places!

 Today I thought I would take a moment to share some bits about our amazing new leather cuffs and the beauty behind them! This is our girl, Annie- she is a mother, a reclaimer, a leather worker and just about the sweetest woman you will ever meet. She hails from southern California but we have claimed her as one of our own! Annie joined our team a few months back and we don't know what we ever did without her. So yeah, we like her a lot!

It has taken many a trial and error in order for our cuff to finally reveal itself but it was worth the wait! We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome! For all you leather lovers out there- this little guy was made just for you! It's clean, simple, and made with a whole lot of love.

      It is so rewarding to see all of the strengths and qualities in each one of the Mason Bar girls. I love that this company can be a source of innovation and creativity for everyone included. There's nothing that a little hard work and some gumption can't accomplish =)

 

gumption (ˈɡʌmpʃən) — n
1. ( Brit ) common sense or resourcefulness
2. initiative or courage: you must have the gumption to try.
