Insider Tips:

  • While Stillwater’s coffee bar serves both cold and hot drinks, the cold beverages are the smoothest and least acidic in town. Feel free to request a sample before you settle on a flavor to purchase.
  • On a diet? Don’t worry. The cold brew does not have sugar added. The flavors in the cold brew are calorie free.
  • Be wary if you suffer allergies or prefer to avoid dairy: many visitors report an unfortunate lack of almond milk at the Stillwater Cold Brew Coffee Company, which typically serves cold brews black or with whole milk.
