No. Each bottle contains 16 shots/servings of our special espresso.
What's the difference between cold brew and Cold Roman?
Cold brew is an immersion brewing method, similar to that of a french press, where you take course ground coffee, steep it cold water for a period of 12-24 hours, before straining out the grounds. It's simple, passive, and you can prepare it easily at home for a fraction of the cost of purchasing it in the store.
While Cold Roman is a hot brewed espresso, brewed by hand, and then double filtered, to remove all the sediment, resulting in a more refined drinking experience. Before being bottled, the espresso is then infused and sweetened with a touch of raw sugar.
Our blend, methodology, and infusion are all part of our family secret, keeping that one of a kind taste exclusive to Cold Roman.

Can I heat Cold Roman?
Cold Roman can be served both hot and cold. While we prefer serving it cold to preserve it's flavor, when serving hot, we suggest adding Cold Roman to your choice of dairy before heating. If only want the espresso, simply microwave 1 oz. for approximately 10 secs.
How do you suggest preparing to get the best drinking experience?
As a first time user, we suggest experiencing Cold Roman using the "Classic Macchiato" recipe on our website. When prepared with half & half, the body and flavor is divine!
1) Pour 2 oz. of Cold Roman over ice.
2) Top with frothed half & half by shaking vigorously (roughly 1oz or 1/3 of the beverage).
3) Activate by mixing both ingredients and ENJOY!
Feel free to substitute half & half for your preferred choice of creamer. You can also visit our youtube page to see first experiences (www.youtube.com/rauscoffee).
