Where can you get the best ICED COFFEE in Connecticut? Well, according to the New England website----it's a tie!

Is there anything better that a cold iced coffee on warm summer day? "Historians can trace iced coffee’s roots back to 1840 Algeria, a country in western North Africa. The first iced coffee was known as mazagran." A coffee beverage that is both sweet, but cold and was reportedly created by the French military. "During the Battle of Mazagran when the French army ran out of milk, they added water to their coffee instead. Additionally, they chose to drink it cold due to the harsh outdoor heat," according to the ADC-US website.

The first establishment that serves amazing Iced Coffee, is in Middletown, Connecticut and it's called Perkatory Coffee Roasters. "The antithesis to the clean-cut, minimalist coffee-shop aesthetic, this skate punk café in Middletown, Connecticut, serves a mean cup of coffee." The Perkatory Coffee Roasters website declares their brew “deathly delicious,” and with specialty beans roasted in small batches in-house, every week, we can see why. "Their cold brew, nitro cold brew, and iced espresso drinks are no exception. In the mood for something even more exciting? Try one of their iced coffee sodas or their frozen, blended coffees." They also have locations in Branford, West Hartford and Southington.

The second place to get a fantastic Iced Coffee is Birdhouse Coffee in South Windsor, Connecticut. "Many coffee roasteries begin with a love for coffee; this Connecticut coffee shop began with a passion for beer brewing." Before the couple ventured into the small-batch coffee roasting world, Steve and Lori Palauskas established the Connecticut Valley Brewing Company. "It was while developing a coffee stout for the brewery that they found their love for craft coffee, and so Birdhouse Coffee was born." If you find yourself in the area, you definitely need to stop by for a cold brew. You can also buy their bags of coffee, which are available to purchase online.
