Secrets of the City Award: Best Summer Afternoon Coffee Drink

cafe horchata

Some publications save up their awards for special once a year blowout packages—but not us! We’re giving out awards whenever we want to, in whatever categories we want to.

Man alive, it’s been humid out, just brutal. And since we’re over caffeinated, we need something that will cool us down while it perks us up. Now, of course we’ve turned in the past to cold press—too much straight coffee, especially in the afternoon. We’ve also had a few crafty iced drinks, like Dogwood’s Cafe Miel, which are good, but just a little too sweet. Our best summer afternoon pick-us-up? The Café Horchata from Peace Coffee. The mix of Yeti cold brewed coffee with rice, almond, and cashew milks hits smack in the sweet spot of summer fun and our café needs without being too saccharine.
