Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee
Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee is a concentrated cold brew coffee beverage that has been cold brewed for 16 hours. Nestle USA owns the brand.
Chameleon Cold Brew is meant to be diluted in water and ice. A serving is eight fl oz of concentrate, with four servings per bottle.
Do not drink Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee straight, as it contains a lot of caffeine and could quickly put a person over their safe limit. A whole bottle of the 32 fl oz concentrate would contain about 1109 mg of caffeine.

Does Cold Brew have more or less caffeine than traditional hot brewed coffee?
The simple answer is more ounce for ounce.
Caffeine is more soluble at higher temperatures; however, to make cold brew coffee, more ground coffee is used per water ratio—a longer brew time of about 12+ hours results in a more caffeinated coffee per ounce.
Comparison: Chameleon Cold Brew has about 65 mg of caffeine per ounce undiluted, while Starbucks Brewed Coffee has 20.6 mg of caffeine per ounce.
But, cold brew coffee concentrate is meant to be diluted with water before drinking, so the final caffeine concentration will depend on how much the consumer dilutes the cold brew with ice or water.
