Summer is coming. And we like to look at each season as a new chance for a great new coffee — specifically cold brew coffees!
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
‘Tis the season, Gemini, and your dual nature is in full force. Whether you’re running hot, or finding your chill, the exotic and wild flavors in Cuvée’s Karmadillo Dark Espresso Blend work great as an espresso or as cold brew.
Cancer (June 22 – July 23)
The sea is calling, Cancer, and there’s no better way to answer than with Verve’s Seabright House Blend. Whether you’re parked at your desk, or the nearest beach, the fudge-like body and aromas of sweet, toasted coconut will transport you to your happy place.
Verve Seabright House Blend ($15.50)
Leo (July 24 – August 23)
Sun’s out, Leo, and no coffee shines brighter for you than Kuma’s seasonal Sun Bear. Blended from Central American and African coffees, Sun Bear leads boldly with berry notes that are rounded out with an adequately intense, yet warm sweetness.

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
What’s the frequency, Virgo? For you, it’s Intelligentsia’s Frequency Blend. Versatile and balanced, this coffee is an easy-to-enjoy fix for all your summer cold brew needs.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Balance is your forte, Libra, and Ruby’s Creamery Seasonal Blend might just be, too. The silky sweetness of cream is always the target of this blend that changes with the seasons. It’s deep and balanced, vibrant yet mellow, just like you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You never beat around the bush, Scorpio, and neither does PT’s Cold Front Signature Blend. Fair warning: once you taste this refreshing cup of fruity flavors, you may join the cold brew cult forever.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20)
You’re a natural traveler, Sagittarius, and wherever you’re headed this summer, Joe’s The Overnighter is your natural companion. A world of nutty, cherry, and cedar notes can be found within this blend, and are best achieved through a slow steep.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You know how to work a room, and there’s no better summer crowd-pleaser than Onyx’s Cold Brew. Like the name might suggest, this Colombian single origin is designed for cold extraction and suited to a variety of cold brew methods. Best of all, it tastes just as amazing on its own as it does with milk or dairy substitute.
Onyx Cold Brew ($15)
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Progressive and original just like its namesake David Bowie, Huckleberry’s Sound & Vision Blend is a perfect pairing for Aquarius. Its pronounced chocolate and caramel, round body, and subtle fruit make it suitable for drip, espresso, and most importantly, cold brew.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
You’re no stranger to darkness, Pisces, and will be fast friends with Gimme!’s Dark. This blend is based on a mix of creamy, nutty coffees roasted to bring out wisps of toasted caramel and hints of smoke yielding a rich and full coffee.
Gimme! Dark ($14)
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As the life of the party, you’ve never needed an icebreaker — until now. Exceptional over ice, and downright other-worldly in an iced maple latte, this blend of East African coffees and our favorite Colombians makes summer seem like something that comes along just so you can drink cold brew.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You are no stranger to the finer things in life, Taurus, and DOMA’s Carmela’s is positively rich with brown sugar, almond, and dark chocolate flavors. Aftertastes of caramel, a mild acidity, smooth body, and. balanced sweetness mean that this coffee is great any way you make it.
