The latest craze in iced coffee has arrived, and it’s perfect for anyone who is constantly on the go. Portable bottles, cans and even cartons of cold brew and beyond — think lattes and fizzy nitro cold brew — allow you to skip the coffee shop line and head straight from your fridge to the office. (On weekends, you can sip cans and cartons of coffee on the beach, where bottles are usually prohibited.) Read on to find out which brews could change your morning routine.

Blue Bottle Coffee (pictured above)

This San Francisco-based company’s cold brew is excellent, but try its New Orleans-style coffee in a carton. Cold-brew coffee with hints of chicory root is combined with whole milk and organic cane sugar for a sweet and silky pick-me-up.


Chameleon Cold Brew

For those who like their cold brew black, these 10-ounce ready-to-drink bottles are the solution. Just pop the resealable top and you’re out the door.




High Brew Coffee

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a can of flavored cold-brew coffee. High Brew offers Mexican Vanilla, Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Mocha in 8-ounce cans.

$15 for 4

Kohana Cold Brew

This canned latte starts with cold brew that’s blended with organic milk. In addition to caffeine, you’ll get an antioxidant boost from monk fruit.




La Colombe Draft Latte

Like a true iced latte, La Colombe’s cans come topped with a layer of foam. Lactose-intolerant folks can rejoice: The brand uses malty lactose-free milk to cut the bitterness without any added sugar.

$10 for 4

Stumptown Cold Brew

Coffee is the new beer with Stumptown’s cans of nitrogen-infused cold brew. The sensation took off last year, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. If you can’t find a cafe with the stuff on draft, take the (nonalcoholic) bubbles to go, in a can.
