Smell that? Spring is in the air. Once the temperatures start to rise, we start reaching for deliciously bold and refreshing cold brew.

Different from iced coffee, which is just your average hot coffee diluted with ice (and sometimes additional water), cold-brew coffee is brewed slightly stronger and made without any added heat, resulting in a bolder, richer flavor and significantly less acidity. From canned options to a New York-brewed boxed cold-brew brand, we've tasted our way through the best cold-brew brands you can find in any major grocery store.

With further adieu, here are our favorite ready-to-guzzle cold-brew coffee brands.

Mocha Vibes
Chameleon Cold-Brew Organic Mocha Coffee Concentrate
Chameleon Cold-Brew

Made with organic, sustainably farmed Latin American beans, Austin-based Chameleon Cold-Brew has a number of yummy flavors in its collection, like this super smooth and chocolatey mocha riff. A touch of cocoa extract enhances the brew's natural chocolate notes, making this a serious treat.

I love serving this rich cold-brew coffee concentrate over ice with my favorite creamy oat milk when I'm feeling fancy.

An Extra Strong Brew
Califia Farms Concentrated Cold Brew
Califia Farms

Made from Arabica coffee beans sourced from Colombia and Central America, Califia Farms Concentrated Cold Brew has a smooth, rich taste and is way less acidic than most standard iced coffee.

Each 32-ounce carton makes 8 cups of strong coffee (like, “180 milligrams of caffeine per 8-ounce serving” strong).

Brewed in NYC
RISE Brewing Co. Original Black Nitro Cold Brew Coffee (12-Pack)

Why sip standard cold brew when you can upgrade to a super refreshing, nitro-infused cold brew instead?

Organic, sustainably sourced, and free of any harsh chemicals or additives, New York City-based brand RISE Brewing Co.'s Original Black Nitro Cold Brew has a beautiful cascading pour and deliciously smooth taste.

The One With A Pour Spout
Wandering Bear Straight Black Cold Brew Coffee
Wandering Bear

This New York City-based company knows how to keep the city that never sleeps abuzz. These handy 96-ounce boxes each pour 16 individual servings of delicious cold brew, keeping offices nationwide properly caffeinated.

Super smooth and one of the least acidic options out there, this is a cold-brew coffee worthy of sipping black.

Brazil Does It Best
La Colombe Brazilian Single Origin Cold Brew (12-Pack)
La Colombe

This cold brew from the coffee experts at La Colombe is made from specialty single-origin Brazilian beans that are brewed overnight, cold-pressed, and filtered.

Slightly sweet and with a super clean finish, we think this brew tastes best straight up and poured out over fresh ice.

Dairy-Free Pick
High Brew Black & Bold Cold Brew Coffee (12-Pack)
High Brew Coffee

High Brew uses 100% direct-trade Arabica beans that are slow-roasted to perfection for each batch of their conveniently canned cold brews.

These come in all sorts of tasty flavors — like Mexican Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and Dark Chocolate Mocha — but our personal favorite is the dairy-free Black & Bold.

New Orleans-Style
Grady's Cold Brew New Orleans-Style Coffee Concentrate (6-Pack)

Certainly not your average cup of joe, we guarantee this robust New Orleans-style, cold-brew coffee concentrate will liven up your morning routine.

We love the earthy chicory root notes in this super smooth brew. Each 32-ounce bottle of concentrate makes 8 cups of delicious cold-brew coffee.

A Nitro Cold Brew
Lucky Jack Triple Black Nitro Cold Brew Coffee
Lucky Jack

Infused with extra espresso, this big and bold Double Black Nitro Cold Brew from California-based brand Lucky Jack delivers a solid double dose of caffeine.

Though the glass bottles are super convenient for sipping on the fly, we recommend pouring this beauty into a pint glass to fully admire this brew's foamy head and chocolatey hue.
