  • Chief Family Officer’s Favorite Things: Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

    Trader Joe's Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate - Chief Family Officer's Favorite Things

    One of my favorite discoveries this past year has been Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate:

    TJ Coffee Concentrate

    This coffee concentrate makes for the easiest iced coffee ever! The directions say to use one part of coffee concentrate to three parts of water or milk. However, I’ve been using about three parts of nonfat milk, a splash of heavy cream and a splash of maple syrup to make my iced coffee. If I’m not out and about to grab a chai tea latte at Starbucks, the iced coffee really hits the spot.

    Each bottle contains 32 ounces and costs $7.99 (at least here in LA – prices may be regional). Once opened, you can refrigerate the bottle for up to 30 days. (I write the date I opened it on the label with a Sharpie.) If you don’t use up the whole bottle, you can freeze what’s left in an ice cube tray. I’ve done this and used the frozen coffee cubes when a recipe called for coffee or when I wanted to keep my coffee cold in an insulated travel mug (these Contigo mugs are my favorite because they don’t leak and keep drinks hot or cold for hours).
