Attention busy moms and dads, we have a new coffee solution for you! Humblemaker, an independent coffee company out of California, sent us some of their new cold brew coffee shots to test and we are big fans.

Humblemaker generously sent us a gorgeous highball glass and 3 packs of their new cold brew shots; one of each variety. Each package ($30) contains 8 shots which is just about the right number to get you through the week – one a day and one emergency shot for long work days.
“Humblemaker cold brews are made using only the highest quality, responsibly sourced, fresh roasted organic coffees. Their proprietary process is cold from start to finish – closely regulating brew temperature and brew time to ensure ideal extraction and flavor. Their premium ingredients and cut-no-corners-attitude delivers the finest quality finished product possible.” This is directly from their website because, hey, you can’t beat this description!
Each shot offers a little something extra like Vitamin C or Ginseng. We love the 115mg of coffee in each shot but also the extra wellness boost! They are perfect for coffee on the go or to keep at your desk for a mid-day boost. This summer we brought them camping, some folks drank their shots straight and other added theirs to some cool milk.
note: these shots do need to be kept refrigerated so they stayed in the cooler at camp
Cold Brew Coffee Shots – 3 Options
1) La Fonda – “An antioxidant rich, Mexican Coffee cold brew shot with pure cinnamon and cacao that harness all the immune boosting power of green tea: active polyphenols, Vitamin C and selenium”
Taste test: The cinnamon and cacao really make this shot fantastic, the flavor isn’t overpowering and the coffee is smooth. Who doesn’t need an extra immune boost these days? I’ve actually mixed this with the Boomtowne shot for the ultimate wellness shot.
2) Black Sea – “This cognitive health Turkish Coffee cold brew shot is brewed with real cardamom and clove packed with L-Theanine and Ginseng, both known to promote memory and reaction time.”
Taste test: This was my least favorite of the three, the coffee is still fine but I’m extremely opposed to cloves. The clove notes seemed very strong to me. If cardamom and clove peak your interest then you will enjoy this one, it is particularly good for the fall.
3) Boomtowne – “An ultra smooth Simply Black triple strength cold brew shot with liquid multivitamin.”
Taste test: Yes, this is the winner for me! A wicked smooth no-frills black coffee shot with a multivitamin to boot.
There are so many pros – flavor, taste and convenience. The wellness aspect of these shots is an absolute stand out. The La Fonda with extra immunity boost offers the ultimate combo. While these shots won’t replace my regular coffee everyday they will become a regular purchase. Having some on hand for those extra busy days has been a lifesaver.
The only con for me is the price. $30 for an 8-pack of shots seems a little steep, that is $3.75 each. This is similar to a Starbucks Coffee, but much more than brewed coffee at home. The good news is you are getting a multivitamin or an immunity boost in addition to your caffeine fix. You also won’t be tempted to get that pastry as you order your mid-day coffee. 😉
