Best Iced Coffee in Auburn
Imagine… it’s the beginning of May and you’ve successfully gotten through finals.
As an instant wave of relief passes over you, realization that you still have an action-packed summer overflowing with classes smacks you in the face. Summertime and studying are definitely a hard mix, so why not motivate yourself with coffee? Here are some of the best iced coffees in Auburn to help you make it through summer semester.
Iced Honey Bomb
If you’re still fighting seasonal allergies, the Iced Honey Bomb is for you. This coffee uses brown sugar, cinnamon, and local honey, making it one of the most natural drinks in town. The honey from Claybird Bees builds up your immune system against local pollen. Supporting a local business and beating allergy symptoms — it’s a win-win.
This has been a favorite around Auburn since its introduction in 2010. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy, using cayenne and dark brown sugar.
Iced Bikini Bombshell
If you like caramel on your ice cream, this might become your new beverage of choice. The Iced Bikini Bombshell is swirled with the caramel you pour on a sundae – talk about delicious! This drink is the caffeine kick and dessert fix you’ve been looking for.
Lavender and White Chocolate
Want to try something a little outside the box? This coffee is syrup-based but isn’t overly sweet. There’s a strong coffee taste with a hint of creamy white chocolate and calming lavender. Heavenly.
Honey and Brown Sugar
The Honey and Brown Sugar iced coffee is the owner’s favorite! It has real honey and brown sugar, making it the perfect sweet summer refresher.
Any chocolate milk fans? You’re going to love this one. The Jittery Cow is a combination of chocolate milk and cold brew coffee. Not only will you get your caffeine kick, but you’ll also enjoy the taste of some good ole’ chocolate milk.
Cold, sweet, and delicious! The Tweeker combines cold brew, brown sugar, and milk. It may not have the chocolate milk taste from your childhood, but trust me, it does the trick.
Iced Spiced Chai Latte
Looking for the best of both worlds? This iced drink is both tea and coffee. It has a super cinnamony flavor but is still refreshing for a hot day.
Iced Mexican Mocha
The Iced Mexican Mocha is a serious wakeup call. It’s espresso-based and will have you ready to face the day in no time. And don’t worry, the sweet chocolate flavor balances out the bitter bite of the espresso.
