I love iced coffee! Full stop. One thing I plan to do on this blog is review different kinds of cold brew/iced coffee that I try.
Wandering Bear Coffee totally got me with their re-marketing efforts on Instagram. I kept seeing their ads in my feed and eventually I decided to try a box. For 29.99 you get a 96 oz box (12x 8 oz glasses) that stays fresh in your fridge for up to 30 days once opened. That works out to about $2.50/glass, which is cheaper than a coffee shop but a little pricy for at home consumption, in my opinion. You can buy multiple boxes and get the cost down if you really wanted to.
I got the “straight black” but they offer flavors as well. This coffee is strong, but very smooth. It doesn’t have as much of a natural sweetness as some other cold brew’s I’ve tried, but I still liked it. The convenience of boxed coffee is kind of dangerous too. I found myself continuously topping off during the work day. They say a box should last you 2 weeks drinking one glass/day—I finished it in less than a week 😳.
I’ll probably order it again, but I want to try a few other things in the meantime. This weekend I’m making a batch of iced toddy with a bag of Rising Star’s Apocalypto Blend.
