Califia Farms: Triple Shot 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.
The smell when first opening the bottle is a nice mild milky coffee smell. It has a nice milky flavor coming in as well. No acidity at all it is nicely covered with the almond milk and sea salt. As you bring it further back into your mouth you get this underlying bitter taste that is just underneath the surface but never breaks through. The salt covers it perfectly. The very end is when the coffee flavor comes out. There is not very much of it though. It is a slight squeal at the tail end of a drink instead of a roar. I expected more of a punch from a drink that say it is a triple shot. This just taste really like salty chocolate milk. There is not really much of a body either it stays on your tongue for a very short time. You do not get the nice coffee after taste that lingers in your mouth and nose. The price of this bottle is $2.99 for 10.5 ounces, which is $0.29 per ounce.
This is the 3rd Califia Cold Brew Coffee I have tried and reviewed. Although I do have to say that this one is the best out of the 3, but that isn’t saying much. The salt is not as overpowering in this one. I think it is because this is triple the concentration of coffee and therefore worked together better with the salt. There is just not enough coffee flavor it just taste like chocolate milk with a coffee tone at the end. Also even though it was a triple shot it didn’t really feel like 3x the caffeine. Maybe it just meant 3x the flavor but it also wasn’t that too. I would get this if you what chocolate flavor caffeine with a slight savory flavor. I personally wouldn’t get this again.
