Let's Talk About Coffee

Coffee: a morning routine adopted by millions around the world. Whether you enjoy brewing a cup as your morning meditation or grabbing a cup to-go as a part of your daily habit, we can all appreciate a good cup of coffee. Let’s just say that we have made iced coffee a key portion of our day and we would not want to live without it.

While living at home during a pandemic, we have all grown to appreciate our morning cup of coffee whether it’s homemade, Starbucks, or Dunkin. However, the quarantine has led us to try and experiment with so many different types of coffee that we would not have touched on a normal day. 

Califia Farms:

First off, we believe that Califia Farms Pure Black Blonde Roast Cold Brew should be enjoyed by everyone. Yes, we do mean everyone.

Califia Farms is dedicated to improving health, alleviating climate change, protecting animals and solving world hunger by providing products that support a plant-based diet. Through much experimenting, we have found that the Pure Black Blonde Roast Cold Brew (wow, that’s a mouth full) is the fan favorite!

The cold brew is best served on ice with a splash of oat milk or almond milk and a splash of creamer (we’re biiiiig fans of alternative milk). Our favorite creamers are the Califia Farms Dairy Free Unsweetened Almond milk creamer and the Coffee Mate Natural Bliss Vanilla Almond Milk Creamer. We love to mix the dairy free creamer with a milk alternative simply because one way is too creamy and the latter is not creamy enough–– mixed together is just right!

Though we dislike the plastic jug Califia Coffee is packaged in, it is instant coffee that gives you the Starbucks feeling (but better), and you don’t even have to leave your kitchen.

Chamberlain Coffee:

Emma Chamberlain’s Chamberlain Coffee is crafted for maximum quality, freshness and convenience. Think of a tea bag, but with freshly roasted coffee–– mmmmm. We absolutely love her steeped coffee bags and believe that they are the best served 48 hours after initially soaking them; waiting patiently for 48 hours is definitely the hardest part.

Once you’ve fully committed to leaving the brew in the back of the fridge so that it can become strong and flavorful, it is best enjoyed with a splash of milk alternative, including oat milk or almond milk and a splash of dairy free creamer.

Copper Cow Coffee:

Lastly, the unique company Copper Cow Coffee has quickly become a favorite in my home because it is sustainably sourced, has all-natural and delicious flavors and shows how you can be a Barista in your own home. Copper Cow is an organic, all-natural Viatnamese coffee that includes real California milk creamers. 

What’s unique about Copper Cow is that it allows you to brew just one cup of coffee right into your cup, while providing packaging that is completely eco-friendly (unlike single-use K-Cups, yuck). My personal favorite is the Lavender Latte because it gives you energy while still leaving you with “just the right amount of chill.” What is best about Copper Cow Coffee is that though it’s made hot, it can be served hot or cold.

What coffee will you try moving forward?

p.s. I firmly believe that iced coffee is best served in a mason jar with a reusable straw!

Happy Sipping,
