We Tasted 9 Chain Cold Brew Coffees, and This One Was the Best

Composite by Kathleen Collins

In the world of coffee, cold brew is currently king. This unique variety of iced coffee is definitely having a moment, so we decided to try offerings from nine different chains, from Chick-fil-A to Starbucks. The winners will definitely surprise you.

#9 Pret a Manger

The main complaint about Pret’s cold brew was that it was watery and weak, and our panel found it to be unmemorable.

#8 Nobletree

Our panel found Nobletree’s offerings to be bland, and a little too bitter for our liking.

#7 Peet’s

Mellow, smooth, and gentle were three adjectives used to describe Peet’s offering, but the overall consensus was that it was just “fine.”

#6 Blue Bottle

Blue Bottle’s offering was hearty and robust, but some of our panelists found it to be too bitter and strong.

#5 Stumptown

Our tasters found Stumptown’s cold brew to be smooth and well-balanced, with a nice roasty flavor. Several panelists found it to have a slightly stale flavor, however.

#4 Starbucks

We found Starbucks’ cold brew to be very drinkable and well-balanced, with a nice toastiness. It was a little too bitter for some, however.

#3 Dunkin’ Donuts

Dunkin’s cold brew was very mild and mellow, with a nice smoothness. A couple panelists found it to be a little too weak for them, though.

#2 Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A’s cold brew, which is sourced through a collective in Central America called Thrive and steeped for up to 24 hours, was a dark-horse hit and the test’s biggest surprise. It had a rich, chocolatey flavor that was unlike any other sampled, with nutty, malty notes that really impressed us.

#1 La Colombe

Philadelphia-based La Colombe’s cold brew is steeped overnight in steel wine tanks before being pressed, double-filtered, and canned, and it was far and away our tasters’ favorite. It was rich, smooth, mellow, and well-balanced, with both nutty and fruity notes. In fact, it was the only cold brew that our tasters unanimously agreed was delicious. But the big shocker here was just how good Chick-fil-A's iced coffee was!


Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons Inc. (TSX: THI, NYSE: THI) is a Canadian fast casual restaurant [ 3 ] known for its coffee and doughnuts. It is also Canada's largest fast food service with over 3000 stores nationwide. It was founded in 1964 on Ottawa Street in Hamilton, Ontario, by Canadian hockey player Tim Horton and Jim Charade (1934–2009), after an initial venture in hamburger restaurants. [ 4 ] [ 5 ] In 1967 Horton partnered with investor Ron Joyce, who assumed control over operations after Tim Horton died in a car crash in 1974, and expanded the chain into a multi-million dollar franchise. Jim Charade left the organization in 1966 and briefly returned in 1970 and 1993 through 1996.

Tim Hortons franchises spread rapidly and eventually overtook McDonald's as Canada's largest food service operator. The company opened twice as many Canadian outlets as McDonald's [ 6 ] and system-wide sales also surpassed those of McDonald's Canadian operations as of 2002. [ 7 ] The chain accounted for 22.6% of all fast food industry revenues in Canada in 2005. [ 6 ] Tim Hortons commands 76% of the Canadian market for baked goods (based on the number of customers served) and holds 62% of the Canadian coffee market (compared to Starbucks, in the number two position, at 7%). [ 8 ]

As of April 1, 2012, Tim Hortons has 4,042 systemwide restaurants, including 3,315 in Canada and 721 in the United States. [ 9 ]

Tim Hortons' international presence includes outlets in the United States (including one opened in Detroit and owned by former NBA player Derrick Coleman) and one that was on a military base outside Kandahar, Afghanistan. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] [ 12 ] Two more outlets are located in military bases at Fort Knox, Kentucky, [ 13 ] and Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. [ 14 ] Tim Hortons' other international expansions include a small outlet at the Dublin Zoo. Tim Hortons also made a deal with the SPAR convenience store chain in the UK and Ireland, resulting in Tim Hortons coffee and doughnuts being sold at small self-service counters in 50 SPAR stores as of 30 April 2007. [ 15 ]

Through franchisee partnership with Dubai based Apparel Group, Tim Hortons entered the United Arab Emirates in 2011 with store openings in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Fujairah, with the first location being Sheikh Zayed Road, opened in September 2011. [ 16 ] They are expected to open up to 120 stores in five years across the Persian Gulf region including Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait. [ 17 ]

Its busiest branch is located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories prior to its November 2010 expansion into Nunavut, [ 18 ] it was also its northernmost store. [ 19 ]

In November 2010, Tim Hortons extended Interac debit payment system acceptance to most of its stores. The company previously began accepting Interac in its stores in Western Canada in 2003 and, later, MasterCard and MasterCard PayPass across most of its stores in 2007. The company often indicated the delay of broader or wider electronic payment acceptance was to "ensure speed of service." [ 20 ] [ 21 ]

In November 2010, Tim Hortons extended Interac debit payment system acceptance to most of its stores. The company previously began accepting Interac in its stores in Western Canada in 2003 and, later, MasterCard and MasterCard PayPass across most of its stores in 2007. The company often indicated the delay of broader or wider electronic payment acceptance was to "ensure speed of service." [ 20 ] [ 21 ]


Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons Inc. (TSX: THI, NYSE: THI) is a Canadian fast casual restaurant [ 3 ] known for its coffee and doughnuts. It is also Canada's largest fast food service with over 3000 stores nationwide. It was founded in 1964 on Ottawa Street in Hamilton, Ontario, by Canadian hockey player Tim Horton and Jim Charade (1934–2009), after an initial venture in hamburger restaurants. [ 4 ] [ 5 ] In 1967 Horton partnered with investor Ron Joyce, who assumed control over operations after Tim Horton died in a car crash in 1974, and expanded the chain into a multi-million dollar franchise. Jim Charade left the organization in 1966 and briefly returned in 1970 and 1993 through 1996.

Tim Hortons franchises spread rapidly and eventually overtook McDonald's as Canada's largest food service operator. The company opened twice as many Canadian outlets as McDonald's [ 6 ] and system-wide sales also surpassed those of McDonald's Canadian operations as of 2002. [ 7 ] The chain accounted for 22.6% of all fast food industry revenues in Canada in 2005. [ 6 ] Tim Hortons commands 76% of the Canadian market for baked goods (based on the number of customers served) and holds 62% of the Canadian coffee market (compared to Starbucks, in the number two position, at 7%). [ 8 ]

As of April 1, 2012, Tim Hortons has 4,042 systemwide restaurants, including 3,315 in Canada and 721 in the United States. [ 9 ]

Tim Hortons' international presence includes outlets in the United States (including one opened in Detroit and owned by former NBA player Derrick Coleman) and one that was on a military base outside Kandahar, Afghanistan. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] [ 12 ] Two more outlets are located in military bases at Fort Knox, Kentucky, [ 13 ] and Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. [ 14 ] Tim Hortons' other international expansions include a small outlet at the Dublin Zoo. Tim Hortons also made a deal with the SPAR convenience store chain in the UK and Ireland, resulting in Tim Hortons coffee and doughnuts being sold at small self-service counters in 50 SPAR stores as of 30 April 2007. [ 15 ]

Through franchisee partnership with Dubai based Apparel Group, Tim Hortons entered the United Arab Emirates in 2011 with store openings in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Fujairah, with the first location being Sheikh Zayed Road, opened in September 2011. [ 16 ] They are expected to open up to 120 stores in five years across the Persian Gulf region including Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait. [ 17 ]

Its busiest branch is located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories prior to its November 2010 expansion into Nunavut, [ 18 ] it was also its northernmost store. [ 19 ]
