Summer is the time for farmers markets and patios and bright sunshine. The best complement to these activities is a refreshing drink from local coffee shop. We’re excited about these summer specials from Columbus shops!

One Line Coffee | Slow Drip Cold Brew

One Line’s popular Kyoto-style Cold Brew is intensely flavored. Made over 24 hours, the liqueur-like cold brew brings out the boldest elements of each coffee. It’s strong enough that it’s best served over iced.


Roaming Goat Coffee | Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Roaming Goat’s new Short North coffee shop is the perfect place for a refreshing pick-me-up on a hot summer day. Their Vietnamese Iced Coffee is made with dark roast mixed with chicory, brewed and served on top of sweetened condensed milk. They’re also offering an Iced Golden Latte flavored with turmeric and ginger.
