Mississippi Cold Drip
Mississippi Cold Drip Coffee and Tea Company began in 2010 and now offers premium brewed Coffee Concentrate, Chai Tea Concentrate, and Flavored Coffee Concentrate. The Original Coffee Concentrate offers robust flavor, low acidity, and high caffeine content.
The company uses a triple filter reverse osmosis steeping process for 24 hours, then roasts immediately before brewing. The slow heatless steeping process reduces acidity, allowing you to enjoy the maximum coffee flavor without damaging your taste buds. Because of the concentrate’s strong caffeine and flavor, the company recommends drinking it as one part concentrate to two parts milk or water.
If you prefer flavored coffee, you can buy the concentrate in tasty varieties that include subtle enriching notes without artificial sweeteners. A few popular flavors include the following:
- Salted caramel
- Mocha peppermint
- Pumpkin spice
The Chai Tea Concentrate offers a bold blend of cardamom, clove, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, black pepper, and orange oil in a sweet and spicy tea. The company boils and simmers the chai spice infusion to create the richest flavors. Like the coffee concentrates, you should dilute the Chai Tea Concentrate with water or milk or mix it with the Original Coffee Concentrate to create a “dirty” chai.
Saluto’s Italian Cookies
Nothing beats a homemade cookie from your grandma. With Saluto’s Cookies, you don’t have to wait for special occasions to enjoy a treat baked with love. NaNa from Saluto’s makes each cookie by hand with the finest ingredients.
The Saluto family began their cookie journey in Sicily, Italy, in outdoor ovens where they would hand roll each cookie and then pass the recipe down generation by generation until it reached our shelves. The Fig Cookies feature a sweet filling of figs, fruits, and nuts inside a flaky cookie, a perfect pair with coffee or wine.
The assorted batch typically contains anise cookies, seed cookies, and a colorful arrangement. The anise cookies have anise oil in the dough with confectioner sugar icing. The seed cookies offer a baked-on crisp, and the colored cookies use natural flavorings, like lemon, to create an enticing finish.
The Fig Cookies and the Assorted Italian Cookies are light capsules of joy that you won’t be able to eat just one of. Luckily, according to the nutritional (or proper use) label, the serving size for the assorted cookies is three!
