Califia Farms: Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Coffee Review
Califia Farms are best known for making drinks that are totally plant based. They are based out of California, however, I see them a lot in stores in Texas. Their portfolio ranges from juices to coffee. All their coffee is grown on Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Which means their farmers are paid a living wage and are all in good living conditions. There isn’t much else about the cold brew that they brew, except that it says that it is brewed in a few hours, which seems a lot less than the other brands.
As I stir the drink in my cup I get that nice pumpkin spice fragrance, it isn’t as strong as I expect it to be. The first flavor you get when you first drink it is the sweet pumpkin milk taste with a slight hint of the cinnamon underneath. It isn’t real milk though it is made with their almond milk. The flavor profile is the same through the whole tasting. The cinnamon does come out more at the end as the drink is finished. There is not really much of a body at all even with the thick almond milk. It is a little gritty as you get to the end of the drink as the sediments settle at the bottom of the cup. Again this Califia drink has no coffee taste at all. I just expect them to put a little coffee taste in it given how big the coffee word is printed on the bottle. Also, there is not much caffeine in this drink as well, there is only 20 mg of caffeine per serving. That is only 5 mg more than an Arizona ice green tea. The price is $5.49 for a 48 oz bottle which is $0.12 per ounce
Not sure who these drinks are made for. I can understand if you do not like the taste of coffee and want the caffeine and want to cover the taste of coffee that’s fine. However, this covers the taste of coffee and doesn’t provide the person drinker with caffeine. So I am not sure what the point is. It might as well just be pumpkin spice drink. I guess if you don’t like the taste of coffee and are super sensitive to coffee then this is the drink for you.
