I wasn't much of a coffee drinker in my 20's, then my 30's came along. I enjoyed a semi-daily hot coffee until I hit 40, then it became a necessity. I noticed in my mid-40's that hot coffee started giving me agita once in awhile, so I went soft, and started drinking iced coffee. Oh my sweet pet, iced coffee was just what I needed. According to Spoonuniversity.com, studies show that cold brew coffee is 67% less acidic than hot coffee, and because of less acid, more coffee flavor comes through. Flavortown.

I love Yankee Magazine, the regional lifestyle powerhouse that covers all things New England, and they pay semi-attention to Connecticut once in awhile, compared to extensive coverage of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont locales. Yankee Magazine/New England.com just released their choices for "Best Iced Coffee in New England" , and they've chosen two places in each state in New England on their list.

For Connecticut, they chose two places, one that I have been to, and one that I haven't: Perkatory Coffee Roasters - in Middletown & Southington, is legit. Yankee/New England.com also chose Birdhouse Coffee in South Windsor, which I will go to soon. I've been to a lot of coffeehouses around Connecticut, and I would like to add a few of my personal choices for your consideration. I'm not an expert, I don't really know the difference between Sumatran and Kona, I just know what I like, and maybe you will to.
