I'm an avid coffee drinker. So much so that if I don't have a large cup of coffee by about 10 am, I get the worst type of headache. I'm a caffeine addict. There. I said it. But who doesn't love coffee these days, and especially an iced one. I'm pretty easy when it comes to coffee. I don't generally take flavor or anything fancy. I stick with a dark roast with skim milk and some sweet-n-low. I get all the questions from baristas, mainly "are you sure you don't want any flavor or syrup?"  Yes. I'm sure. I prefer my coffee with more of a coffee taste than a dessert taste. So I tried Starbucks new cold brew coffee, which is steeped in iced water for 2 hours to make.



It came out sometime last week. I got an email about it and tried it the next day. I always get a trenta iced coffee, so I got my cold brew in a trenta. Let's just say it was dark and strong. It was very smooth. But you can see just how physically dark it is. The picture above has skim milk in it and it still looks like pure coffee. Whatever you put in it, it's basically going to continue to taste like pure coffee. Now, I'm not saying that it's bad. It's really terrific if you like straight coffee, but I do like my milk and sweetener. The great thing is that even after all the ice melts, it doesn't taste watered down at all, so that's a major plus! But the cold brew is also 50 cents more than my regular iced coffee so on a daily basis, that 50 cents will add up hella quick. 
If you're a fan of that strong coffee taste, I would definitely recommend at least trying the cold brew one morning. It will definitely give you an energy jolt. 


Have you tried the cold brew yet? What did you think?
