We know that feeling — waking up to another day at home, with no semblance of time, weekdays and weekends all blurred into one. Thank goodness for coffee then. For serious coffee drinkers though, those who’d still like a professionally-brewed cuppa but may lack the skill or tools for D-I-Y brewing, there’s an alternative: cold brew coffee.
If you must know, cold brew is made by steeping coffee grounds in room temperature water for a long duration of time, usually more than 12 hours, resulting in coffee that’s naturally sweet, smoother, and less acidic than their hot water counterparts. Most importantly, it can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks, though most establishments recommend about 6 days for optimal taste.
At a time when we’re told not to leave our houses as much as possible, this makes sense to us because cold brew coffee can be bought in bulk, usually a bundle of 6 bottles at a time, which enables weekly, instead of daily, deliveries. You’re now saving on delivery fees! So, in a bid to support our chilled coffee cravings, here are the cafes and businesses that offer to-your-door delivery for their cold brew coffee — for which we’re eternally grateful.
Those dark glass bottles have now become synonymous with cold brew coffee, especially when one of our favourite cafes, Stranger’s Reunion, has included a potent blend of espresso, milk, and a touch of cream in theirs. Not to be biased, but we’re here for one of the most balanced flavours around, a combination of sweet and milky while still retaining that characteristically strong punch of coffee. We can drink this all day — but we really shouldn’t, not after 5pm anyway.

This specialty coffee joint at Rangoon Road has been touting their cold brew bottles since day one, in signature beer-like bottles, and they get that formula right each time. Made in-house, the coffee flavour’s fragrant and refreshing, while the blend of milk and coffee for the cold brew in White smoother than your average player. On top of Black and White variations, we’d also recommend the Dark Cocoa that’s essentially rich iced Valrhona chocolate in a bottle, as well as their Mocha and Matcha Milk variations.
