Matt Bachmann & Ben Gordon founded Wandering Bear in New York City in 2014


We were in grad school and each showed up to class one day carrying a mason jar of homemade cold brew coffee. A fast friendship, over 100 experimental batches, and many weekends in the kitchen later, we’ve created something we’re really proud of. Friggin’ delicious cold brew iced coffee, yes. But also a company driven by passion, honesty and a mission to become a favorite part of your day.


Our goal has always been to put the best-tasting coffee possible in your cup. We modeled our cold brew off the stuff we would often seek out from our favorite coffee shops around New York City. Our brew is bold (so it stands up to ice), but uniquely smooth with a bright, chocolaty finish. And it’s always ready to drink.

Oh, the beans? We’re currently using a Fair Trade, organic Arabica bean sourced from a cooperative in Peru. If you want to geek out over specifics, get in touch. We’re always happy to chat coffee.


Wandering Bear boxes put cold brew iced coffee on tap in your fridge


We’re proud to say that we were the first to realize that putting cold brew coffee in a box with a tap was a really cool idea. Keeping our cold brew fresh was always a challenge when we brewed at home. So we eliminated the two things that make coffee go stale: air and light. With our boxes you have a personal tap in your home or office fridge. 


Wandering Bear is our spirit animal


The Wandering Bear represents our approach to our mission, our personality and our company culture: strong (like our coffee), playful and curious. We feel connected to the bear. We’re guided by our curiosity, a quiet confidence and we believe actions speak louder than words. That’s why we let our products speak for themselves. 



Always fresh & on tap.

Our goal was pretty simple: give you the best possible cold brew coffee in the most convenient way. So, we made a decadently bold, surprisingly smooth coffee. Then we put it on tap in a box that keeps it fresh (even after opening!) and fits right in your fridge. We think it’s going to be your go-to.

The Details:

  • Please keep refrigerated

  • 25 mg caffeine per ounce (about twice as much as hot coffee)

  • Separate bag and box to recycle

  • Stays fresh even when open —guaranteed fresh until the date on the box!

  • Only Fair Trade certified, organic coffee here. And no sugar, ever!

Never miss your morning coffee

We ship fresh every week. All orders received by Sunday night will be shipped out on the next Tuesday, and you should expect to receive your order by Thursday.
