Let’s Make Some Iced Coffee!

Swing by the Red Roasters drive-thru or our Spalding University location, and pick up a can of our new Iced Coffee Blend ($12 for 12 oz. can.)
The mix of South and Central American beans contains chocolatey caramel and berry notes that lend themselves perfectly to being served cold. Add a touch of cream and you have the perfect summer pick-me-up.

Two dollars from each can will be donated to The Center for Women and Families’ Adopt-a- Room program. The program provides a year of safe haven and day to day necessities for victims of intimate partner abuse and sexual violence.

For more information on the Center and the program, visit www.thecenteronline.org.

How to cold-brew coffee at home:

Using French Press: Combine coarse ground coffee with room temperature water and let steep overnight in the press. In the morning, plunge the press and you will have a full-bodied coffee. Pour over ice.

Using automatic drip coffee maker: Brew a full pot of coffee, using half the normal  amount of water. After the brew cycle finishes, pour it over a pitcher of ice and place in fridge.

This Saturday at the Douglas Loop Farmers Market will be hosting a Blackberry Festival on Saturday July 14 from 10-2.

In addition to our usual Red Hot deliciousness of Hot and Iced Organic Coffees, we are featuring a special House Made Organic  Blackberry Organic Lemonade to cool off with while pursuing over 50 booths of local goodness under the tall shade trees.

Stop by and say hi!
