BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Zing on over to Uel Zing Coffee in Bloomington for some super strong, super smooth cold brew coffee!
The popular Yelp coffee lab, as they call it, is located a few blocks west of the downtown square, not far from Indiana University.
Sam Sveen started selling his cold brew coffee on a bike cart around IU's campus. Now, Sveen's Uel Zing 1000 is sold all over Indiana.
"We grind it up and throw it in these basically these giant tea bags and brew for 24 hours in cold water and makes it strong, but less acidic. Smooth. It’s a little smokey," explains Sveen.
Uel Zing is made with Tinker Coffee beans, which is another Hoosier product based in Indianapolis.
The cold brew has double the strength of a hot cup of Joe. It's guaranteed to give you that zing!
"It is 60 percent less acidic than hot brewed coffee. So that translates to a bitter flavor and better for your stomach too," says Sveen.
Brittany Smith from Yelp Indy says customer reviews highlight Sveen's passion for his business and his unique brew.
"One of the top things Yelp reviews say about Uzel Zing is the educational aspect. Come here and learn the difference between cold brew and ice coffee and take a package home to create them at your home," explains Smith.
The local product is also bottled and sold at select spots in Indianapolis, but if you want the full experience, you need to visit the hip coffee lab in Bloomington.
"Come in here and get the stuff straight from the source! Cold coffee is more refreshing," says Sveen.
Uel Zing coffee lab in Bloomington also hosts tasting events the first Sunday of every month at 2 p.m.
