Rich and complex all on its own, this treat’s for you, black-coffee drinkers. But thanks to the lack of bitterness, it might also inspire hard-core latte lovers to skip the milk. $3.99 for 10.5 oz

Rise Brewing Co. Nitro Blood Orange Coffee

Sure, it sounds weird, but why not blend your morning OJ with a cup o’joe? We loved the citrusy kick and the creaminess, made by infusing the coffee with nitrogen. Who knew? $4.49 for 11 oz

This sweetened coldbrew concentrate is like eating a cinnamon roll, without the mess. Mix 1 part concentrate with 1 1/2 parts water or almond milk and enjoy. $8.49 for 25.4 oz.

La Colombe Triple Draft Latte

Pull the tab and a hit of nitrous oxide creates a frothy and flavorful drink. In the caffeine department, this triple shot lives up to its name. $12 for a four-pack (9 oz. each)
