On warmer days, you might want iced coffee or perhaps a cup of cold brew coffee. Cold brew coffee is growing in popularity for a few reasons. First, the brewing method for cold brew results in a low-acid beverage. Since coffee can be tough on some people’s stomachs, this is great news. Lowering the acidity means that drinking coffee is less likely to upset your stomach.
And if you like your coffee on the strong side, you’re going to love cold brew. It’s typically brewed strong, and then served over ice. If you like, you can add water to decrease the strength, and you can even heat it up. There are also cold brew concentrates which are designed to be served with water. Be sure to read the directions and experiment with the cold brew of your choice. While the process of making your own cold brew takes some time (up to 24 hours), you can purchase already brewed cold brew coffee at Sam's Club®. If you decide to brew up a batch yourself, just be sure to think ahead so it’s ready when you are.
K-Cups & Single Serve Coffee
In the late 1990s, there was a revolution in the world of single-serve coffee. The K-Cup® was invented, along with a new type of brewing system. K-Cups® (also known as coffee pods) are small containers that contain enough coffee to brew a single cup. They were originally intended to entice those who worked in offices, but the pods and machines became popular in people's homes as well. K-Cups® are extremely convenient, and now you can find K-Cups® for tea and cocoa as well as other beverages. If you already have a brewer for K-cups, great! If you’re considering purchasing one, check out the Keurig coffee makers at Sam’s Club. They’re simple to use and they cleanup is a breeze.
If you haven’t explored the world of tea lately, you’re in for a treat. Sam’s Club offers a wide variety of teas from around the world. There’s a bit of something for everyone. If you are traditional, try English Breakfast tea. It’s a caffeinated black tea, and it’s a great alternative to coffee when you first wake up. It’s delicious black or with a splash of milk and a teaspoon of sugar. Fancy an afternoon break? Try an herbal tea or a fruit tea. Herbal and fruit teas are delicious and calorie-free. And if you’re trying to cut down on afternoon snacking, sipping on tea can be a great way to curb your appetite. Trouble sleeping? Mint tea or chamomile tea are both known to be calming. They’re perfect as a warm treat before bedtime, with or without milk. And if you want to mix things up, check out the chai tea and iced tea mixes. They’re great both hot and iced.
Brewing Coffee and Tea
There are plenty of options for brewing coffee and tea. Before you pick one, there are a few things to consider. First, how many people in your household drink coffee and/tea? If there are only one or two people who will drink it, you can consider a single-cup coffee maker or a small coffee maker that won’t take up very much counter space. If you typically make coffee or tea for three or more people, you’ll want something that makes a larger pot. At Sam’s Club, we have a wide variety of coffee makers and tea pots. There are even espresso makers, milk frothers and fun accessories to make your morning coffee or afternoon tea time special.
