We Try Califia Farms' New Almond Milk Iced Coffees

Califia Farms' AlmondMilk (which is made from whole blanched (not roasted) California almonds) is available in number of the flavors you might expect (original, unsweetened, vanilla, and coconut) but they recently launched a ready-to-drink iced coffee option for vegan, non-soy drinkers—and for those of us who just like the taste of almond milk. While we generally shy away from premixed, ready-to-drink anything, having prepared iced coffee ready to go in the fridge is a convenience we're interested in.

Coffee Drinks: Yuangyang, Hong Kong Coffee-Tea

A marriage of coffee and tea (with a fair amount of milk for good measure), this East-West bev pretty concisely captures the ever-expanding hold that coffee culture has on pockets of China, Japan, Korea, and the surrounding areas.

Every Sunday morning I buy every green thing at the farmer's market, and every Saturday I turn it into juice that surely counteracts the week I spent chugging Trader Joe's frozen burritos. More

How To Make Japanese-Style Iced Coffee

Now, I know you people love your cold-brewed iced coffee: Everyone is always talking about it. But I'll argue that iced coffee brewed in the Japanese style is not only easier and tidier than its long, slow, cold-brewed counterpart, it's also significantly more dynamic flavor-wise. And there's a good reason for that fact: Certain of the brighter, more nuanced aromatic compounds and solubles in coffee simply won't dissolve in cold water. More
