Product DetailsIntroducing the first iced espresso worthy of Alfred Peet’s name. Inspired by the top selling drinks at our coffeebars, we take our signature bold, rich espresso and pair it with carefully sourced ingredients. Then we package it for you to enjoy on the go and deliver it to your door—the way Iced Espresso should be.
Rich flavor, Less sugar**: At only 110 calories per 8oz serving, our dark roast single origin Colombian espresso provides such deep roasted sweetness that less sugar and calories are needed to deliver pure coffee indulgence.

I love the idea of this drink, but the execution falls flat. It is simply way too milky. For reference, I LOVE iced espresso beverages and make Peet's iced hazelnut latte at home (2 shots espresso forte, 4 pumps Monin hazelnut syrup, milk and lots of ice) and enjoy a well-balanced sweet vs. bitter yet still bold (i.e. a little more ice than normal and a little less milk). The ratio of sweet to bitter is decent (maybe it could use a little less sweetener) and I think the drink would be very good if it had more of the espresso/caramel taking up the room of some of the milk.
Also, I found it best to chill the can in the fridge and avoid pouring the beverage over ice as that just further dilutes the taste and gives it a strange almost sour flavor (weird!). Be careful when you shake the can, I have to put a paper towel over the top when I open it to keep it from spraying everywhere like a soda can!
(Also, even with the critique, the caramel is better than the mocha and black and white which taste awful, in my opinion--found those flavors at a large bullseye department store sold individually and tried them, yuck.)
