La Colombe’s iced coffee packs something extra, says sam1: a double shot of espresso. The resulting brew is one of the best in town, bracingly strong but not burnt-tasting. The simple syrup that sweetens it has something unexpected going on, too; vanilla, sugartoof surmises.
The difference in Stumptown’s delicious iced coffee is a deep chocolaty note, sam reports. Miss Needle detected something similar in the strong, smooth iced Kona at Roasting Plant.
And new in town is the Village outpost of Brooklyn’s Nut Box, with a cold-brewed iced coffee that’s thick, rich, and deeply flavorful. “Very delish!” Jess321 declares.
