I’ve recently started buying cold brew coffee concentrate in an attempt to curb my coffee shop spending. I like having it on hand for days when I’m too lazy to go through the full pour over charade or just simply don’t want hot coffee.
(I type this as I sip an iced coffee that I bought at a coffee shop, by the way. Old habits die hard.)
To make my iced coffee at home I just combine about 1 part coffee concentrate to two parts almond milk. In the ultimate act of laziness, I decided to buy this ready-made Califia iced coffee with almond milk so I don’t even have to combine the two myself. It was a mistake.
Unfortunately, this iced coffee just didn’t do it for me. Even though it only has 10 grams of sugar, it felt overwhelmingly sweet to me. This may just be because I never sweeten any of my coffee though so don’t let that deter you if you’re a sweet coffee drinker.
For me, all it would take is an unsweetened version and I’d be all in. Until then, I’ll just stick to their almond milks.
Has anybody else tried this? What’d you think?
