Blue Bottle’s New Orleans Style Iced Coffee
Labor Day weekend is almost here which means fall is around the corner. Wah wah wah. I drink iced coffee year ’round–I’ve found it’s the only way I can tolerate the office coffee, but if you’re a seasonal iced coffee drinker you’ll want to give Blue Bottle’s New Orlean’s style iced coffee a try while the weather is still nice.
When I first wrote about Blue Bottle opening at Rock Center, more than one commenter mentioned their New Orlean’s style iced coffee.

The New Orleans iced coffee will be the death of me. $4 a pop is a tad on the pricey side, but DAMNYUM it’s tasty.

The New Orleans style iced coffee is to die for.
I travel to all far off parts of NYC to get that stuff. It is amazing and nothing is frou frou about it except for perhaps the price.
With praise like that, I knew I’d be checking it out. I’ve never been to New Orleans, so I had to ask, what’s “New Orlean’s style” iced coffee. Turns out it’s a coffee-chicory combo like what they serve at the famous Cafe Du Monde. The coffee is a little bitter and a lot sweet. It has a bit of simple syrup and more than a healthy splash of whole milk, so it’s slightly reminiscent of an indulgent coffee ice cream. At $4 a pop, it’s not it’s not an every day sort of coffee for me, but if you love iced coffee and are looking for a treat, this is for you.
