so obviously we had to taste test the best.

So check out our findings in the slideshow at right while you pour yourself a cold one. Cheers!
"It tastes a little bit like there's maple syrup in it. It's really thick." -- Josh Madden, NYLON Guys Content and Marketing Director"It wasn't too bitter which I like and I like that I can drink it without adding any sugar and milk in it. It's refreshing." -- Estefanie Duque, Web Programmer
"It's a full bodied coffee. It really tastes like a cold-brewed coffee, not like coffee made in a hot and then iced. There's some fruity top notes, too, maybe like a dusty cherry." Blair Waters, NYLON TV Producer"It's a light roast, not bitter, not sweet...it just tastes like fresh iced coffee." -- Jannah Berkley, Online Editorial Intern
