Liquid coffee concentrates like Javy and Jot have become a popular way to quickly and easily brew coffee at home. But how do these two major brands compare when it comes to taste, price, and sustainability?
When sampled black, Javy’s concentrate produced a darker, richer, bolder coffee with nutty notes. Jot’s black coffee was lighter and less complex. For milk-based drinks like lattes, Javy’s concentrate again resulted in a more prominent coffee flavor. However, Jot’s subtler profile worked well for simple coffee drinks.
Javy offers better value, with each bottle making approximately 30 cups of coffee at about 83 cents per cup. Jot’s smaller bottles make just 14 cups at $1.86 per cup. With subscriptions, Javy’s cost can be as low as 60 cents per cup.
Both brands source ethical, organic beans. Javy partners with Raiz Sustainability to support regenerative farming practices.
For bolder coffee flavor and lower cost per cup, Javy is the winner. But Jot’s mellow taste profile has its place too. Try both to see which concentrate best suits your coffee needs and preferences. Right now, Javy has limited-time discounts available on subscriptions, so it’s a great time to give it a try.
