Disclosure: Pull & Pour received coffee samples for this post, however, as always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Snapchilled coffees from are one of my favorite, ready-to-drink coffee options out there. They are likely the closest I’ve found to the sweetness, aromatics and flavor profiles you get when you make flash brewed coffees. The reason is the process of making Snapchilled is very similar to making flash brew—with the added step of canning it immediately (it’s not that simple, but follows that general idea). The core offerings of Snapchilled coffees are all excellent, but the collaborations with different roasters is where it really gets fun. Last year I got to try collaborations from Little Wolf and Cirque and this summer I was extremely excited to try the offering from another of my favorite roasters, Brandywine. The coffee was processed with dehydrated mandarins from other farms surrounding the farm where this coffee was grown—and the orange notes come through loud and clear.

As with all the other Snapchilled coffees I’ve enjoyed, this coffee was delicious and incredibly drinkable. It featured strong citrus notes with beautiful undertones of chocolate. The orange citrus notes reminded me of elements of the orange-infused iced AeroPress recipe I’ve been enjoying so much recently. My favorite attribute about these cans were their sweetness. The coffee was incredibly sweet with a lot of complexity both in the sweetness and flavor profile.

The Bottom Line

Brandywine and Elemental Beverage Co delivered again with this extremely refreshing and delicious Snapchilled coffee. It’s become my go-to drink on the increasingly warm summer afternoons when I need a quick coffee and don’t have time or desire to brew one up myself.
