1. I need a perfect at-home cold brew/iced coffee for the summer. Do you have a favorite? I know I can make it at home, and I love my homemade syrups – but I need a great cold brew or coffee I can grab out of the fridge on busy mornings.
2. Reeeeeally want to try these watermelon coconut smoothies.
3. Guys sometimes when I need to look up directions… I still type in mapquest and search. How old does that make me!
4. It’s our first official week of summer and I am living for it. We’re eating every meal outside. So many popsicles in the fridge.
5. Speaking of, here’s 26 ways to really soak in the summer.
6. TV things!! I need something new to watch. I still need to watch Severance and also want to start Hacks 2. I also accidentally caught the movie Old on HBO which was so weird but I couldn’t stop watching. And I hate anything scary.
7. How to shift your mindset to deal with overwhelm. Printing this out!
8. Yesterday Max asked alexa “truth or dare” and it dared him to eat a tablespoon of flour. I just about lost it. Time to throw alexa in the trash!

I’m a huge fan of Trader Joe’s Organic Cold Brew Nitrogen infused coffee. In my area it’s $2.29 for 10.5 ounces of delicious nitro cold brew, and worth every penny.
Have you watched part 2 of the Final season of Ozark? It’s on Netflix now..
Stok light roast cold brew is our fave! Found at Target and other grocery stores around here.
I like the Chobani Coffee Cold Brew Pure Black – no sugar, no dairy. Yum!
Me too! This👆
The Califia blonde roast cold brew is my new favorite. I still like Stok bright and mellow but recently bough Califia when that was out. So good!
Do you have a local coffee shop that has coffee on draft? I got some from a local market that is really good, the only drawback being their biggest size is 32oz. Otherwise, Chobani has a cold brew box with a spigot, like boxed wine, that is a little bigger.
Jessica, my coffee loving boss has stocked our office refrigerator with UCC Coffee with Milk and it has been a hit with everyone! I really want to try it over ice! Also, throwing Alexa in the trash made me laugh! :)
I just like the Stok cold brew (green bottle) or Starbucks with Chobani creamer – sweet cream and cookies n cream are my fave!
Don’t hold out on Hacks! It’s so good.
Trader Joe’s Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate is good. It doesn’t really need sweetener but I add a splash and also use vanilla almond milk.
Yes, this! The concentrate is the best and lasts for a long time depending on how often you use it!
Please share the ice coffee cold brew recipe if you get one!
Stok cold brew is soooo smooth! I love it!
I use the Pioneer woman’s recipe for cold brew coffee. I even bought the containers she used and I put some in a small drink dispenser to keep in the fridge for easy filling my cup. The remainder I keep in the basement fridge. It is easy and makes a big batch.
Also I go to my local coffee house and ask for a coffee that is good for cold brew and they grind it up for me and so much better than the brand Pioneer woman uses. Also make big batches of sangria with those containers. It is super easy making your own cold brew. I highly recommend
A friend’s daughter actually asked Alexa at Easter time if the Easter Bunny was real. Luckily Alexa gave a very diplomatic response.
Two Words- Ted Lasso. I know you think you won’t get into it/don’t care about sports but you will LOVE Keeley Jones. You will Love Jaime Tartt. You will dream about Roy Kent. You will love Rebecca (and want her wardrobe) I swear you will love it so much.
Amen to everything Kimberly said! You will love it all!!
Yes, yes, and yes. Such a brilliant, sweet, funny, wonderful show.
I love BrewBike, and keep a jar of it made in my fridge at all times.
I came here to echo everyone saying stokd! I get the unsweetened one and it has a subtle chocolate flavor that frankly is dangerous because I can’t stop drinking it and become super jittery 😂 but worth it!
I use Josh Weissman’s methods…Ive tried both and generally just go with the first method. I filter through cheesecloth first then run it through my coffeemaker and let gravity do it’s job. Just put in a filter and pour the cold brew into the coffee basket.
Cometeer coffee pods make amazing cold brew! Trader Joe’s also an easy favorite.
I swear by Brewbike (individual packets) and Wandering Bear (box with a spigot)!
Honestly my favorite summer iced coffee is your fresh mint iced coffee recipe ha! But if you don’t want to make it yourself and want to buy, my favorites are Stumptown (though not sure you can find it in that area – it’s in our local Whole Foods) or Stok.
I love Califa medium roast. I add some chocolate syrup and whisk it together then add the califa oatmilk and ice. It’s so good!!!
Hacks!! So good!
Stok is the BEST cold brew coffee….strong but not too strong!!
Fell in love with canned High Brew out of Austin Texas. Especially the Mexican Vanilla. Luckily my local grocery carries it.
I also recommend Stop,so many flavors you can add to make it your own! I know i am a latecomer to this series, but, Workin’ Moms is just so good!
Literally the best.
My favorite at home cold brew recipe is 3c water, 2/3c coffee, and 3Tbsp brown sugar. You can omit or adjust the brown sugar as you wish. The recipe is from The Velvet Bird blog, but it’s no longer active.
I should add that I make it in a French press or pitcher. Let it sit for 12-24 hours in the fridge. If I make it in a pitcher, I usually strain it over a different pitcher using a colander and paper towels. My method is probably frowned upon, but it works! Ha!
Stumptown cold brew is my favorite if I don’t make it myself. I usually make my cold brew with Onyx cold brew beans. Perfection.
Stok – green one. The best.
Jot coffee concentrate. Amazing hit or cold. By far my best impulse buy from a targeted social media ad. Been buying from them regularly for over 2 years. They’ve
ruined all other cold brews for me and now nothing else will surfice’
