After previously reviewing Peet’s Dark Chocolate Cold Brew and Baridi Black Cold Brew with pretty mixed feelings, I knew I had to get my hands on their third ready-to-drink cold brew option, the Coffee Au Lait.
Now, a typical Café Au Lait is simply black coffee with a lot of warm, semi-steamed milk. But in this case, it’s Peet’s Baridi Black cold brew coffee with a lot of milk and sugar added.
And when I say a lot of sugar, I mean a lot of sugar. 20 grams to be exact.
But alas, I have a sweet tooth, and based on my positive experience with Peet’s Dark Chocolate cold brew and the similarly crafted Stumptown Cold Brew with Milk, chances were looking good that I’d really enjoy the Coffee Au Lait flavor as well.
Unfortunately, Peet’s Coffee Au Lait was one of the worst ready-to-drink cold brew coffees I’ve tried in recent memory.
Not only was it way too sweet, but it also had a very unnatural coffee flavor to it that didn’t seem like it could possibly be the same Baridi Black cold brew coffee I had tried previously. And if it actually was the same Peet’s Cold Brew, then the milk and sugar definitely ruined the cold brew’s natural flavor.
Suffice to say, I will not be picking this one up again. If anything, I’ll be sticking with the Dark Chocolate version.
