1. La Colombe Oatmilk Draft Latte
This one is for those who love grab-n-go creamy coffee but live life dairy-free. La Colombe offers a variety of canned oat milk draft lattes—including Original, Vanilla, and Caramel—which are vegan, gluten-free, and kosher. The Oatmilk Draft Latte consists of Brazilian cold brew and certified gluten-free oat milk with the signature aerated texture of La Colombe draft lattes.
If you fall in love with these cans, La Colombe also offers canned coffee subscriptions. You can select delivery every one, two, three, or four weeks and get your coffee on demand.
2. Dark Matter Coffee Cold Cans
Fans of Dark Matter Coffee coffee beans—like the robust and lively A Love Supreme—will want to check out its selection of unique and experimental canned cold brews. For something pre-sweetened and mellow, check out Chocolate City or Vanilla Suburbs. If you're craving something with a bit more funk, try the rotating offering of spirit barrel-aged cold brew known as Black Splash or Brown Acid, the cold brew infused with layered hops.
And if you order directly from the Dark Matter Coffee site, your cans will be delivered in a reusable artist-designed cooler.
3. Stumptown Original Cold Brew with Cream & Sugar
If you like your iced coffee with cream and sugar à la a Starbucks Frappuccino, you should try Stumptown’s single-serve boxes of Original Cold Brew with Cream & Sugar. The coffee flavor is ultra smooth, much like Stumptown's coffee beans, as well as sweet and creamy. Plus, the juice-box style packaging is 100% recyclable for all the environmentalists out there.
If an iced mocha is more your scene, Stumptown also offers its iced coffee in a chocolate flavor. And if you're curious about a dairy-free version, Stumptown has you covered with its Oatly Chocolate Cold Brew.
4. Brandywine Coffee Roaster Snapchilled Magic Worka
Aspiring coffee connoisseurs or current coffee professionals will love Brandywine’s Snapchilled Magic Worka Ethiopia coffee cans. The coffee that goes into these cans is intentionally sourced from the Worka Cooperative in Ethiopia (and is also available in coffee bean form). The coffee is natural-processed, which means that the coffee seeds are fermented in their fruit before the rest of the processing happens. This results in fruity and sweet coffee, with tasting notes of fresh strawberry and raspberry. Also, can we talk about this gorgeous packaging?
5. Elemental Beverage Co. Snapchill Collaboration Sampler
If you want to try a variety of different cold coffee cans, check out the Snapchill Collaboration Sampler from Elemental Beverage Co. Elemental partners with many independent coffee roasters to release limited-edition cold coffee cans. Each can is snap-chilled coffee, which is coffee that’s brewed hot and cooled instantly as opposed to the cold brew process.
The sampler will include selections from three of Elemental's collaboration partners, similar to a chef's tasting menu (like our Chef's Course newsletter), allowing you to diversify your cold canned coffee experience. Who knows, maybe you’ll even discover a new favorite coffee roaster!
