Discover a new kind of crawl this summer: an iced coffee crawl! While I’ve always been a fan of hot coffee, the scorching summer sun has pushed me to the dark side. Join me as I embark on a caffeine-fueled adventure, exploring some of our community’s best coffee shops and indulging in their unique and delicious iced coffee creations. To make your journey even better, we’ve collaborated with five of our favorite local coffee shops, who have recommended their most enticing iced coffee drinks just for you.

Tchin Tchin Coffee’s Steampunk Salted Caramel Mocha
179 E. Moreno St., Buford
Tchin Tchin’s Steampunk Salted Caramel Mocha is a unique fusion of coffee legends, combining the smoothness of a nitro cold brew with the rich flavors you crave. Beginning with a classic aerocano, steamed iced espresso sets the stage for a treat that is adorned with salted caramel, adding a delightful blend of sweetness and savory allure. Topping
it all off is a crown of foamy mocha, delivering a touch of chocolatey goodness. Whether you’re enjoying it on your own or sharing the delight with friends, Tchin Tchin has crafted a blend you won’t soon forget. Plus, it packs a punch that will help to motivate you on those slow summer days.


Arte’s Dalgona Latte
1291 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee
Swing by Suwanee’s Arte coffee shop for their Dalgona Latte, also known as the Honeycomb Latte. Inspired by the popular Netflix series “Squid Game,” this unique beverage pays homage to the traditional Korean sugar candy, dalgona. Crafted with care, the Dalgona Latte combines creamy milk with layers of dalgona powder and delectable dalgona chunks for a perfect blend of sweetness and richness. While caffeine-free by default, coffee lovers can opt to add a shot of espresso for a touch of coffee flavor.


TADA Coffee and Dessert’s Butterscotch Cream Latte
3463 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, Suwanee
Tada Coffee and Dessert’s newest addition to their menu, the Butterscotch Cream Latte, showcases a symphony of flavors, starting with a luscious layer of butterscotch cream on top, followed by an espresso shot and unsweetened chocolate powder, another delicate layer of Butterscotch cream, and finally, a base of creamy milk that truly defines it as a latte. With its candy-like essence and a touch of caramel, the Butterscotch Cream Latte promises a unique and delightful taste experience. We suggest savoring the creamy top layer first to relish the full butterscotch flavor, and then blending it with the latte for a creamy and caramelized sweet indulgence.

Cafe Blue’s Matcha with Strawberry Cream
3200 Woodward Crossing Blvd., Buford
Located in Buford near the Mall of Georgia, Cafe Blue’s Organic Matcha with Strawberry Cream is one of our new go-to orders. It’s a delightful blend of high-quality matcha green tea and a milk of your choice, crowned with a heavenly dollop of strawberry cream. This iced matcha not only offers a vibrant and refreshing flavor but also provides a revitalizing boost — plus, it’s almost too pretty to drink! The star of the show is the indulgent strawberry cream, adding a burst of delicious sweetness. Matcha and strawberry — who would’ve thought it’d be the pairing of the summer?!
