Supporting local is a mission of StyleBlueprint. Yes, you’ll see us talk about Nordstrom, Saks, J. Crew, or even Target, but, what makes us the happiest is when we find that perfect LOCAL treat. Today sums this up perfectly with Cantata Coffee.
Locally owned by Bebe Goodrich, this is one coffee experience that truly makes you say, “This coffee is amazing. What have I been drinking all this time?”
This is gourmet, cold press coffee, which means easy preparation, very little waste, and a more healthful coffee. Cold brew has a smooth, rich taste –think hot chocolate smooth– and it is 100% free of the coffee solids that are the main culprit for staining teeth. It is also less acidic, so it’s gentler on your stomach.
More healthy facts:
“A roasted coffee bean contains many compounds that are extracted during the brewing process. Some of those compounds, including certain oils and fatty acids, are soluble only at a high temperature. Through Cantata’s cold-brewing method, coffee beans are never exposed to high temperatures; therefore, many problems that come with traditional heat brewing are never an issue.
Our method extracts the delicious flavor compounds from premium coffee beans, but leaves behind the multitude of bitter oils and acids found in almost all other coffee. The result? A bold, super-smooth taste that’s easier on the stomach, not to mention your taste buds.” –Cantata Coffee
Just add water to 1 oz, microwave and enjoy! Coffee drinkers and haters alike can unite over this one – even my kids had a sip (all three of them) and LOVED it. Perhaps that wasn’t the best choice, as goodness knows we don’t need them becoming caffeine junkies like their mama! But, it does prove that this coffee is amazing.
There are few places in the country where you can actually pick up Cantata, so Birmingham is lucky. The other StyleBlueprint cities need to order it–which of course, for convenience, you can, too. Order the large size; you’ll drink it all. It’s just 50 cents a serving with no waste.
