Grab-and-go coffee is seeing a spike in popularity since CMCO was reintroduced

Can you think of anything better than a bottle of refreshing cold brew on a humid day? Smartly packaged, these takeaway bottles aren't just pleasing to the eye—the cold brew process can lend coffee a smoother, sweeter and less acidic nature. Some claim it results in coffee with a higher percentage of caffeine (and therefore a longer buzz) but without any jitters. Regardless of what you believe, these nine cafés will satisfy your caffeine cravings.
