A cold brew coffee supplier has been launched by the former MD of tea brand Make Mine a Builders.

Jonathan Chiu has joined forces with Stuart Forsyth, founder of reusable coffee cup company KeepCup, and coffee aficionado Willie Rixon, to form Minor Figures Cold Brew Coffee.

The company’s first drink, which comes in a 200ml Tetra Pak carton (rsp: £2.25-£2.60) and has a shelf life of seven months, was steeped for 12 hours in a brewing tank to optimise flavour and freshness, said Chiu.

Selfridges will stock the product from later this month, and Chiu ultimately aims to supply the mults.
