With coffee shops everywhere we go, there is temptation for the newest beverage craze and sugar-filled, overpriced coffee. These coffee beverages come with all the hype and no benefit. Most medium size lattes, espressos, machiattos, mochas and cappacinos are 200-500 calories each with upwards of 50 grams of carbs ( mostly coming from sugar) per serving! Talk about a mid day sugar crash.

As we move into the hot summer months, an ice cold coffee is the way to go. Cold Brew coffee will give you a fresh, cold caffeine kick to start your day! Cold brew coffee is made and chilled over a longer period of time compared to traditional ice coffee. It is also stronger than regular iced coffee, giving you the best bang for your buck! 

Come by Balance Cafe & Smoothies for their all new Cold Brew coffee; a refreshing burst of caffeine without all the sugar. Try adding a splash of coconut or almond milk for a smooth and creamy taste! Stay energized for a busy day at the office or a day packed with summer activities!
