I've always been a seasonal coffee drinker for as long as I can remember. Normally during the cooler months I’d choose a warm cup over cold, but as soon as I tried cold brew I've been team iced coffee ever since! I like to mix it with almond milk and a little agave for a touch of sweetness. I love that you can adjust how strong your cup is by how much water or milk you add. Since becoming a mom, I opt for the stronger the better! When I was grocery shopping last month I saw Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew Coffee Packs to make easily at home and I’ve been hooked since. All you have to do is stick two of the coffee packs in a pitcher of water then put in the fridge overnight. Easy Peasy!
Before leaving on our trip last month I stopped by the Walmart in our neighborhood to grab a few things including sunscreen and Cold Brew Coffee Packs! Every time we go to Mexico, I always brew a pot of coffee when we get to our condo and keep it in the fridge to make iced coffees. It never tastes the same especially on day three or four. As we were leaving I decided to stick the cold brew coffee packs in my suitcase so I could enjoy the good stuff on vacation. I’m so glad I did! The cold brew was such a nice treat to enjoy while I was sitting outside on the balcony every morning. Trent even surprised me with an iced coffee in bed...such a treat!
Trent and I had the best time in Punta Mita with another couple sitting by the pool and beach, shopping and eating great meals! I missed Piper a ton but it was also great to have a little time to ourselves. I knew she was in great hands with the grandparents back in Houston so it was easy to relax and enjoy the trip.
Some people rave about Mexican coffee, but for me, cold brew is what gets me out of bed each morning... okay and maybe Piper too! :) But, it was so nice to be able to enjoy a little piece of home each morning in Mexico, and it was so easy to make! Just drop the packets, steep overnight, and enjoy cold brew for the rest of the week!
