Sometimes you don’t have an extra moment to brew a fresh pot of joe in the morning. Heating up water for a pour-over cup or a fresh French press can take time you don’t have, too. That’s why there’s cold-brew concentrates and canned lattes!
Perk Up in an Instant
Whether you prefer a dark, rich cold brew or a slightly sweet, creamy latte, we’ve got several options for you to choose from when it comes to getting a quick coffee fix. There’s no brewing or cleanup involved here.
Top Coffee Drink Brands
Coffee drinkers should acquaint themselves with these responsible java masters:
Wandering Bear Coffee
Wandering Bear does cold-brew coffee right. This company uses fair-trade beans to slowly brew coffee in cold water for a strong, smooth, low-acidity taste. Then, it’s packaged in recyclable containers that keep the coffee tasting fresh for longer.
Picnik prioritizes inclusivity. What does that mean? Well, for starters, everything this company makes is free from common allergens, and Picnik’s line of ready-to-drink grass-fed butter coffee also includes MCT oil and whey protein for a filling start to your day.
RISE Brewing Co.
RISE Brewing Co.’s nitrogen-infused cold-brew coffee is one of our favorites when it comes to the rich, smooth flavor of frothy, dark coffee. We might not be able to sell it to you fresh off the tap, but it works incredibly well in the canned coffee drinks that we have available for purchase.
Best Coffee Drinks
For your morning jolt of joe or a mid-afternoon wake-up call, try out these coffee drinks:
Califia Farms Cold Brew Concentrate
While this direct-trade cold-brew concentrate is brewed at low temperature for a lower-acid, smoother taste, you can drink it at whatever temperature you like. Mix with water or something creamy. (Califia Farms recommends its almond milk!)
Califia Farms Nitro Draft Latte With Oatmilk, Salted Caramel
This time Califia Farms did the work for you. The company mixed its nitro-infused cold brew with oat milk and salted caramel for a vegan prepackaged latte that’s sweet, creamy, and frothy.
Organic Cold-Brew Coffee Drinks
Organic beans play a leading role in these take-home concoctions:
RISE Brewing Co. Oat Milk Nitro Cold Brew Latte 4 Pack
A vegan cold-brew nitro latte with 80 milligrams of caffeine per serving? Sign us up! We’ll just have to pace ourselves so we don’t down this whole four-pack in one sitting.
Chameleon Cold-Brew Cold Brew Coffee, Black
The company may be called “Chameleon,” but there’s no disguises or trickery here, just rich, black cold-brew coffee made from sustainably sourced organic beans. Sometimes, basic is best.
