About the Product
How is Suntory BOSS Coffee made? How is it different from other ready-to-drink coffees?
Suntory BOSS Coffee differs from other ready-to-drink coffee brands because of its unique “flash- brew” process. While it’s new to the ANZ market, it has old roots in Japan. With this authentic Japanese-style process, coffee is brewed hot to unlock deep rich flavour, and then chilled down in seconds to lock it in. The result is a distinct, rich coffee experience that is bold and well-balanced.
