Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company acquires Counselor Coffee

Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company acquires Counselor Coffee

The Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company (CBRC), a local specialty-coffee roaster, has acquired Counselor Coffee, a family-owned & Baltimore based, Cold Brew and Nitro Coffee company.

Counselor Coffee started in 2014 as a pop-up shop in Washington DC and then developed into a cold brew coffee company, exclusively focusing on single origin cold brews. Since then, they have specialized in small batch, cold brew and nitro coffee production and packaging, specifically focused on offices and walk in retail locations that serve cold brew from taps. 

CBRC initially partnered with Counselor Coffee in 2016 to further expand their wholesale line of cold brew coffees. Within this partnership Counselor Coffee produced a selection of CBRC Cold Brew & Nitro Coffees that were distributed among CBRC’s wholesale clients and dining service locations. Additionally, Counselor Coffee used CBRC single-origin coffees exclusively for their office & retail customers. 

Through this acquisition, CBRC will continue using Counselor Coffee’s exclusive cold brew production methods. Additional plans are also being developed to further diversify the product line & offerings. 

“With the growing popularity of cold brew & nitro coffee, we feel that by joining together we will be able to become a stronger supplier, thus improving our ability to meet the demands of the market.” 
Rick Erber, CBRC Founder & Director of Sales. 

“Our growth over the last few years has been fueled by our fantastic partnership with the Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company (CBRC) We are thrilled to join forces with CBRC to drive our business forward - their commitment to quality, the environment, and passion for coffee on tap bring us great confidence that our current and future customers will get the best the mid-Atlantic has to offer in cold brew and nitro coffee.”
Eric & Jason Gershowitz, Counselor Coffee.
