Cold Brew Fog – Inspired By San Francisco’s Notorious Fog

Coffee lovers keep looking for unique coffee beverage types and recipes. Anything new that comes into the café industry almost instantly becomes a craze. Summer and cold coffee have forever been best friends. The cold brew fog was no different when Peet’s Coffee introduced it.

During the summer, for most café owners, whether or not Karl the Fog’s disappearance—or reappearance—will affect how many people will greet them at our door.

The cold brew first appeared as Peet’s cold brew and is said to be inspired by San Francisco’s Notorious fog. Peet’s coffee was well known and now with the wonderful cold brew fog, it is even more famous. So what is this refreshing summer drink known as the Peet’s fog?

What Is The Cold Brew Fog?

The Cold Brew Fog is a cold brew beverage that was only available at specific Peet’s locations but now most coffee shops seem to be hopping on the bandwagon for this trend. It calls for their handmade cold brew and chicory root syrup, which is blended and swirled before being served over ice. No milk is added. Let’s talk about how this cold brew fog is made.

How Does One Create Cold Brew Fog Latte?

Here’s how Peet’s experienced baristas pull it off: Each drink is whisked for seven seconds with its characteristic base and a little amount of ice before being poured back over ice to keep it chilled.

It also has very few calories as the texture is created without adding milk. The velvety smooth texture is achieved as it is lightly blended.

My Review for The Cold Brew Fog

On Instagram, several fitness enthusiasts offered a recipe for a low-calorie Frappuccino that was essentially just iced coffee, sugar-free syrup, and ice in a blender, coming in at 5 calories for a venti.

I assumed this coffee fad had passed me by, so imagine my surprise when I went to Peet’s, requested the Cold Brew Fog, and watched as the barista blended my regular cold brew without adding any milk! Was this a resurgence of the trend?!

Having said that, this specific combination was rather good. I wasn’t a fan of Peet’s original cold brew, but adding sugar to anything will make it taste better.

This specific syrup, on the other hand, really complimented the overall frothy effect of my iced tea, and this may be an excellent alternative for individuals who enjoy Fraps – calories included.

My Verdict

I think that the cold brew fog latte is a wonderful way to enjoy your cold coffee as it is not only a delight for the tastebuds, but the enticing foamy texture is to die for as well. I am a coffee lover so any kind of coffee makes my day!
