ice coffee - a boston/NE thing?

cctc | Jul 8, 2002 07:41 PM

Was in ottawa and pittsburgh this past weekend, and in both places, asked for iced coffee and got a wierd look and a "well, we can put our regular coffee on ice for you". This was at the second cup and tim horton's (ottawa) and at some coffee place in the pittsburgh airport. As we all know, putting hot coffee on ice gives you..lukewarm coffee. Not very refreshing.

Of course, you can get iced coffee HERE everywhere..starbucks, DD, ABP, as well as all the independent places. Is it just a new england thing, this love of the ice coffee? If so, what's up with that? (personally, it replaces my regular cup for at least the three months of summer...)

just curious.
