Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Hawaiian shirts. Our friends at Trader Joe's have gifted us yet again another essential and this time it's not in the form of lifesaving weeknight dinners; instead, it's the holy grail of caffeine. The chain is now selling ready-to-drink cold brew coffee.

According to Trader Joe's blog, the coffee is made with 100-percent Arabica beans from Colombia that are air-roasted, ground, and steeped in cold water for at least 12 hours. The flavor is described as bold and rich with hints of molasses, walnut, and cocoa. The body is smooth and the taste is less acidic than your typical cup of hot joe. One 32-ounce bottle, which is about three servings, costs $4.99.
Of course, this isn't the first cold brew product to hit TJ's store shelves. There's black or vanilla cold brew in cans, nitro-infused organic cold brew in a glass bottle, cold brew coffee bags for home-brewing, and cold brew concentrates. Unlike the others, this new java offers multiple servings in a large plastic bottle and it doesn't need to be diluted with water. Just pour it over ice (or don't) and sip.
Trader Joe's is a gift that keeps on giving, seeing as most of us spend close to $5 on a single coffee every single morning. The buck doesn't stop here, though. We bet you were unaware of all the different ways to save money at Trader Joe's.
