Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Tap into your inner barista with this coffee concentrate.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE


I’m an early riser.


And by “early” I mean I’m wide awake and sipping coffee by 5 a.m. every morning (and that includes the weekends).

It’s a curse and I blame it on the man I married, who says that dawn is the best part of the day.


Whatever.


So by the time the afternoon rolls around, and my eyes feel a little droopy while I type, I often reach for an iced coffee.

Traveling to Beans and Franks to get a really good one isn’t always an option, so I discovered a coffee concentrate on Amazon made by OneBy Coffee.


The concentrate is ridiculously easy to use; simply mix one teaspoon with 8 ounces of water, pour it over a tall glass of ice – and voila - you have yourself a pretty decent afternoon pick-me-up.

A little menu with other fun recipes for lattes, mochas and Vienna coffee comes with the packaging, so you can tap into your inner barista.


OneBy’s coffee concentrate contains no sugar or preservatives, and a little bottle of the stuff will set you back $22.50 and makes 17 cups of coffee.
