BUZZY NEW YEAR: CHAMELEON COLD- BREW

 Starting a new year usually ushers in vows of better fitness, health and nutrition-particularly in the eats and drinks category.

 A worthy resolution-get a better buzz on-our top pick USDA ORGANIC Chameleon Cold-Brew.

Since our first sip of refrigerated ready coffee from vending machines in Japan-decades ago(!!!) the buzz in a bottle/can has deliciously evolved to satisfy more sophisticated palettes -with a smooth less acid drinks. Stop choice -Chameleon Cold-Brew made from small batch, air roasted rich coffee beans slooowly processed (drip by drip for 12 hours)- with filtered Texas Hill country water.


CHAMELEON COLD-BREW comes in 10oz RTD sizes of original USDA Organic Black Coffee, Vanilla-sweetened with cane sugar, and the complex Mexican flavor-has a rich blend flavors-almost almond-y...when we added unsweetened almond milk-the results were as tasty as a milk shake but with a lot less calories. Other flavors not pictured: Caramel, Mocha and Texas Pecan. Drink it cold...typical way-but we poured in a mug and nuked hot-still delicious...full bodied flavor. 
Results...are a growing market for premium CHAMELEON COLD-BREW ready to drink coffee  -that now has several tasty alternatives to ole' original coffee- with a few pure, authentic tasting flavored options too, sweetened with cane sugar.


Ingredients are natural-as would be expected from USDA Organic labeled anything....starting here with ethically sourced, organic coffee beans---and filtered Texan Hill Country water...
FOR DAY SIPS=perfect straight outta the bottle. Chameleon Cold-Brew is such a smooth sip-the usual milk liquids needed to take the edge off -are not needed.

FOR NIGHT TIME ---small craft CHAMELEON COLD-BREW mixed with other cocktail ingredients are swank sophisticated drinks that will keep you-and if throwing a party-your guests  buzzy and perky  BONUS: the large size concentrate bottle or "bag in the box" options are made for pourings for a crowd.
