I’m ringing in the new year with a second take for Barefoot Coffee’s cold brew. Last year was the first time trying their cold brew since it released and unfortunately it wasn’t that appealing. The cold brew carried smoky characteristics that left me with an unsatisfying impression.
Thankfully the folks at Barefoot were kind enough to send me a new bottle this year. They left me feeling excited and still slightly nervous try it again as the bottle I first had should have never tasted the way it did.
I was slightly nervous cracking open this bottle. I didn’t want to taste a repeat of last year. Though, part of me was excited to see what this cold brew was supposed to taste like. I popped open the bottle and poured some into a glass. I prepared for that first whiff, half expecting a smoky surprise again, but instead finding that wasn’t the case.
Hallelujah… A chocolate delight emerged from my glass. Sweet, yet creamy milk chocolate filled my nostrils. This cold brew was nothing other than a wave of rich chocolate delight.
On the taste, it is once again a chocolate delight. I swished the coffee around in my mouth and no smokiness anywhere. This cold brew begins with a milk chocolate taste and finishes with more of a rich dark chocolate as it trickles down your throat.
The cold brew is smooth, perfectly balanced, and has no bitterness in sight. A very hard to savor kind of cold brew.

I can’t figure out why the first bottle I had tasted the way it did. I am just glad that I didn’t write off this cold brew completely. Now I can retract my previous thoughts and tell you guys that this cold brew is definitely worth checking out.
So do yourself a favor and order a bottle or a case.
