Good things come to those who wait — eight hours.
That's how long it takes to cold brew what could be the best iced coffee you'll ever drink. Also the strongest.
Armed with twice the caffeine of espresso, this smooth brew at Sip | Stir Cafe in Uptown is never bitter. And it's so full of nuanced flavors, you might ditch your favorite sweetener and daily dairy dosage in favor of a purer drippity-drip-drip.
With all the high-tech machinery, beakers, tubes and heating apparatuses, it's a veritable chemistry lab for creating jolting javas. Featuring only J. Gursey fine coffees and teas, the spacious, chill environment is home to a variety of hot and cold beverages, fresh pastries, and free Wi-Fi.
Just get there early-ish if you want a cup of that cold filter drip before it sells out.
Then settle in for a caffeine buzz that, perhaps coincidentally, also lasts eight hours.
