10 Best Cold Brew & Iced Coffee Subscriptions of 2020

The Best Iced Coffee & Cold Brew Subscriptions

Ahh, cold brew, it’s summer’s elixir. While once iced coffee drinkers used to stop by their local coffee shop, they are now subscribing to cold brew delivery services and taking matters into their own hands—and with eye-openingly delicious results! As it turns out, some of our favorite coffee brewers from around the country are equipped to ship freshly roasted coffee beans and grounds, plus eco-friendly mesh bags, equipping coffee-lovers with the means to DIY their ever-refreshing caffeine boost. All it takes is a gigantic jar, some cold water, and 12-16 hours’ waiting time to concoct your own coffee concentrate—to be enjoyed as a rich and flavorful cold brew or poured over rocks for an epic iced coffee.

We see you out there, too, immediate gratification crew—this list of coffee subscriptions also includes several choices for pre-brewed cold brew that comes ready to be guzzled. We have the jitters already.

The Cost: $15-$25 depending on which coffee you’re matched with. Sign up here!

COUPON: Get 30% off your first subscription shipment, plus free shipping! No coupon needed - just use this link.

About this subscription: Trade is a coffee matchmaker, connecting subscribers with high-quality coffees from around the country. After communicating your preferences in an introductory quiz, you’ll be paired with a subscription plan that’ll start sending you freshly roasted beans or grounds directly from the roasters, at the frequency of your choosing. To have cold brew coffee grounds delivered through Trade, be sure to indicate your brewing method as “cold brew” in your quiz (you can go back and change your brewing method if you’re already signed up to receive regular coffee), and don’t forget to add their cold brew bags to your cart. Anytime you want to start receiving coffee meant to be brewed hot, you can change up your brewing method in your account settings.

Good to know: Trade lets you choose if you’d like to receive whole beans or coffee grounds (which you can customize based on your brewing technique!), but their cold brew is always sent ground.

  1. its crazy how expensive prepared coffee is. I bought a cold brew coffee maker, that has a cylinder in the middle. You fill the middle with your ground coffee, add water to the pitcher – put in the fridge for a day or two. I can add my flavored creamer and ice. Bam! So much cheaper.

    • I have one like that, too. I love it. Easy, cheap and the only way I can get decaf cold brew is to make it myself. I love iced coffee, but can’t have caffeine.

  2. I, uh, stick a pound of coffee in cheesecloth and steep it in two gallons of water in my fridge for a few days like a giant tea bag. It costs pennies per cup and requires virtually no effort. I appreciate that there are services available for those who may not have room in their fridge for two gallons of cold brew, but it couldn’t be easier to make on your own.

    • Jenny, this is awesome! It hadn’t occurred to me to try this until I first received cold brew grounds + bags through my Trade subscription and I realized how simple the cold brewing process really is. When I run out of the bags Trade sent me I’m totally going to DIY it like you do!

    • It’s easy even without the fridge space! I’m the only coffee drinker in my house so a quart (brewed in a french press for 24 hours and then moved to a quart-sized mason jar) lasts me 5-6 days. No special grounds needed either.

      • Clever idea leaving it in your French press, Lydia!

  3. I don’t really like cold brew but absolutely love iced coffee, unfortunately there isn’t any iced coffee options here.

    • Same here. All I drink is iced coffee, and cold brew just isn’t the same. Was really excited when I saw the title, but now I’m sad.

      • This is meant not at all snarky. So iced coffee is regular hot brewed coffee that is just iced or put in the fridge. So almost all these offer iced coffee bc they offer regular hot brew coffee beans. Cold brew is typically regular coffee grinded differently so each ground can release the most coffee while at room temperature. Basically it is all the same bean, just different grinds and iced coffee/hit coffee versus cold brew is brewed in two different ways.

      • Yes, Lynn! That is my understanding, too! I also believe I’m not alone in drinking my cold brew over ice (voila—iced coffee!) because the intense flavor of the cold brew mellows out a little as the ice melts. I’ve learned that there are differences in the acidity & antioxidants of cold brew beans vs. regular coffee beans and will link an article below that gives more info on that. So I think “iced coffee” is kind of a loosey-goosey term for any kind of coffee you like, just served with ice. Hope that helps those with questions!

      • I exclusively drink cold brew over ice. Since it’s more concentrated, you don’t get the same dilution as the ice melts as you do when pouring regular brewed coffee over ice.

  4. I had no idea there was so many options! Thanks for this post!

    • I was so pleasantly surprised to find that there are so many, too! The only one I’ve tried is Trade (and so far the 2 bags of cold brew grounds I’ve been sent yielded pure awesomeness) so I’m over here calculatin’ which one I want to try next. Thanks for reading. 🙂
