You may have settled into your coffee routine. Perhaps you drink 1 cup of brewed coffee in the morning and get an iced latte once a week in the summers. Or maybe you’re the kind of coffee drinker that drinks only doppio espressos.

Maybe you’ve been hearing about people going caffeine-free? While some people do not enjoy how they feel while caffeinated, there’s no need to feel guilty over your coffee consumption. A 2015 study concluded that a higher consumption rate of coffee correlates to a lower risk of mortality. This is happy news if you’re like me and love your daily cup of joe. Or maybe for me that’s more like two cups. Three? Who’s counting? But seriously, coffee is what helps me stay focused and energized throughout the day.

So without further ado, here’s my list:

S’Mores Iced Coffee (Recipe from A Night Owl)

If you’re a fan of the timeless campfire treat, then I bet you’ll love the S’Mores Iced Coffee. This recipe includes chocolate milk, marshmallow whipped cream, and crushed graham cracker. Yum!

Soylent Cafe

Soylent recently launched two more flavors of their Coffiest product, which they’ve rebranded to Soylent Cafe. The three flavors are Coffiest, Vanilla, and Chai. While I haven’t had a chance to try these yet, I’ve really been enjoying Soylent’s original drink. Coffee and Soylent just seem like a match made in heaven.

Cold Brew with Almond Milk

I really enjoy Pressed Juicery’s Vanilla Coffee. Its ingredients are almonds, dates, Kona coffee, and vanilla bean. If you’re more in a DIY frame of mind, here’s a Recipe from the Almond Board of California to make your own cold brew and almond milk.

Espresso Granita (Recipe from Bon Appetit)

On a recent trip to Italy, one of my friends tried an Espresso Granita for the first time, describing the drink as “sweet espresso with the consistency of a slushy.”

Condensed Milk Iced Coffee (Recipe from Delicious Shots)

If you’re more into coffee with a Spanish twist, try this Condensed Milk Iced Coffee. In Spain, this drink is known as the Cafe Bombón. When I was in college, I’d often have this drink at the Espresso Royale Cafe near Boston University. The location is now called Pavement Coffeehouse.
