MarketBasket: Cold caffeine comfort

0 comments

Watered-down iced coffee has been unnecessary since La Colombe issued Pure Black a couple of years ago.

Now Philadelphians have a West Coast option, too, with these fist-sized, Cold Brew "stubbies" from Portland's Stumptown.

Made from toddy-style coffee (steeped at room temperature for 16 hours, then strained), this ready-to-drink brew has the pronounced acidity typical of Stumptown's coffee - a brightness that cuts nicely through a splash of milk and sweetness.
