Ok, I admit it, I love tim’s Ice Cap and I adore MD’s Cold Coffee.. there I said it.. what I don’t like the price.. and I really don’t like the cups and straws..
However, I have been so bad at allowing this to be “town treat” I will just get a small one or I will only get one when I already had a trip planned.. like its something to be proud of that I don’t drive to town when I REALLY want a massive Ice Cap.. (for none Canadian, its a coffee slushie, creamy cold, milky and coffee.. its sweet)
I have over the years made coffee, cooled it and put it in the fridge and its close.. not really close enough.. Yes it was cold.. but it was not “cold coffee from town”
Haha.. I went to town for some needed supplies yesterday and hubby said.. Tim’s and I was like.. nope.. I will make myself a cold coffee when I get home!
Turns out that missing “something” is that GOOD cold coffee is brewed cold.. ok, maybe you all knew this.. but I did not.. I thought cold coffee was hot brewed and then made cold..
Not the good stuff..
Tupperware came out with a cold coffee carafe brew system and I got on sample pricing.. and I love this thing.. I can get a number of my friends who know me in person to back me on this..
I did not get my item for free for posting this, I paid my own hard earned cash to buy it and my review is mine and mine alone.. However if you click on the link above and choose to buy anything from my link.. then yes, I will earn a small commission from you doing so.. per the legal notice required on these things..
I tend to load my coffee because I don’t like the bitterness of coffee.. so I need a crazy amount of sugar to get it to that.. this is amazing stage..
However cold brew coffee does not have that acid bite to it.. and so I have been able to cut my sugar down a lot.. this is a good thing.. I think it would take me a bit to go no sugar, even when mixed with the whole milk, which of course have natural sugar in it.
Add in some of the good flavours you can add to these and who needs town.. I have to limit how many a day I drink and I for sure have to limit how late in the day, as cold brew coffee is TWICE the caffeine.. which is awesome in the morning and So NO after about 5 pm..
I love serving this up to friends and getting the look of Cold Fancy Coffee drinks until they have that first sip or two and then Bam.. they are hooked! lol
I have plans to figure out how much it costs to make a average coffee and report back.. but I know its so much cheaper then in town.. but I need to do some research on different prices on what different ones offer.
There are some fun recipes both to make in the coffee itself an for making homemade creamers.. I will share a few fun fall ones, as I plan on trying some different ones.
Do you like Cold Brew Coffee? Where is your favorite place to get that coffee treat? Do you make it at home to keep costs down? I was so pleased and surprised to say no thanks to my costly in town treat.. knowing that I could make something as good if not better at home..
