Modern Times’ name couldn’t be more apt in this pandemic as businesses large and small scramble to make a living.  Located in San Diego, Modern Times opened as a brewery and taste room operation and soon expanded to several outlets locally.  A couple of years ago, Modern Times rolled out a line of roasted coffee bearing its name, which had been barrel aged.  The diversification into alternative coffee aging made a hit with customers. 

This week, Modern Times Coffee announced that its single-origin and barrel-aged cold brew cans will soon be available all over the United States via partnership with Sprouts Farmers Market.

“Our partnership with the Sprouts team has been seriously exceptional on a regional level,” said Director of Sales & Marketing Phil MacNitt, “We’re extremely excited to be able to put these world-class coffees on a national stage with a partner who shares our commitment to both the quality and the responsible sourcing of their products.”

Customers at all 330+ Sprouts Farmers Markets should begin seeing a rotating selection of both our single-origin and barrel-aged cold brews on shelves all over the U.S. on the week of August 17th, and “we’re thrilled to get them into the hands of both existing fans and uninitiated cold brew aficionados all over the country,” said MacNitt.

About Modern Times Coffee
Modern Times is an intrepid cadre of brewers, coffee roasters, and culinary wizards that began as a 30bbl production brewery and tasting room in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego in 2013. In addition to our growth in the brewery & restaurant worlds, our coffee program has gone full-on banana pants in the last few years, evolving from a tiny one-person operation to the critically-lauded roasting and cafe program it is today. We obsessively source and roast single-origins, various direct trade beans, innovative blends, and canned cold brew roasted by our team of coffee ninjas on a beautiful 15-kilo Giesen roaster.
