Lunar Coffee Brewers
It’s hard to get any colder than in outer space, so coffee fans will want to head straight for The Milky Way ($7) and The Cosmos ($7), bottled cold brews from Lunar Coffee Brewers. Made from coarse-ground coffee that is never heated up, cold brews steeped in room-temperature for an extended period of time for the grounds to be filtered out. The result? A stronger and lightly sweetened coffee with a creamy and smoother texture – nothing like your standard iced coffee!
Undeniably rich in flavour, the Milky Way Soft Serve ($5.90) will melt in your mouth, cooling off the unbearable heat. Served with a sprinkling of shortbread crumbs, the creamy and silky treat has an added a tinge of saltiness and crunchiness that’s incredibly delicious. Try a taste of this refreshing concoction from Lunar Coffee Brewers, and you’ll be sure to want more.
