LAD's Best Kept Secret: New Orleans Iced Coffee @ Blue Bottle
You've seen our shirts and you've seen our chinos, but what about the team behind it all? Not to brag, but we're pretty damn cool...and we'd like to share with you some of the equally as cool places, meals, drinks, & things we're crazy about right now. Each week, one of our team members will share with you their 'Best Kept Secret'. Lucky you.
"There's coffee...and there's coffee. Blue Bottle Coffee falls in that second category. Dedicated to serving freshly roasted coffee beans, Blue Bottle commits itself to offering customers coffee at its peak flavor. Since its conception in the Bay Area, the brand has expanded to Los Angeles, New York and even Tokyo.
Initially conceived as an alternative to the erratically composed and often disappointing iced latte, the New Orleans iced coffee is cold-brewed for 12 hours with roasted chicory and sweetened with organic cane sugar. The end result is a potent concentrate that they cut with organic whole milk (we suggest you get it with their homemade almond milk). It's sweet, creamy and, perhaps most importantly, consistently delicious."
For those not in reasonable distance to a cafe, Blue Bottle offers online sales of its coffee beans as well as digital brewing guides - so you can get as close to the Blue Bottle taste as you can at home. Enjoy!
