Maybe it’s because I’ve only lived in the South (now, Southwest), but I’ve always preferred my coffee cold. Lately, the buzz in chilled coffee is all about cold brew. Whereas traditional iced coffee is brewed hot like normal and then iced down, cold brew is never exposed to heat.
Major retailers are starting to catch on to cold brew now, but I can honestly say I’ve been on the train for quite some time. I love that its taste is smoother than iced coffee and seems easier on the tummy (probably because of the reduction in acidity), but it actually packs a way more powerful caffeine punch.
Of course, the best way to experience anything coffee or otherwise is through a local business. We’re lucky here in Phoenix because we have so much wonderful locally sourced food. Shamrock Farms is a cornerstone of that, and they’ve combined their delicious dairy products with cold brew coffee! Yum!
The first thing I look at with any food is the ingredients list, and this one is impressively simple.
Plus, it’s got DOUBLE the caffeine of regular coffee. Yeow!! *furiously cleans house*
I love that it isn’t too sweet – I like to pour mine over ice in a mason jar, add a dash of cinnamon and enjoy.
I got mine at Safeway, but you can also get it at Bashas, AJ’s, Albertson’s, Sprouts or even Quik Trip if you’re on the go. They come in Original, Mocha and Vanilla, and they’re in the coffee/juice refrigerated section.
