This past weekend, at Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, I had the opportunity to pick up some cold brewed coffee from Chameleon.  I was given several samples as I was making my way towards the exit.  At the time I didn’t have a chance to speak with the vendor about what made their product unique.

I awoke this morning in need of a good pick-me-up coffee, something to start my morning right.  Fumbling in my bag of ‘goodies’ from the show, I grabbed the first coffee I could get my hands on: Chameleon Cold-Brew Vanilla Coffee.  The package said to keep the glass bottle refrigerated, which I had not, but it was still cold so I decided to give it a try.  Ingredient wise I liked what I saw: organic coffee beans (fair trade, of course,) organic cane sugar, and natural flavors, all in filtered water.  No chemicals, preservatives, or things I couldn’t pronounce.  Chameleon uses simple products to produce an outstanding coffee.

I usually drink my coffee with milk and sugar; this particular drink required neither.   It tasted fairly bold, though a bit watered down, as if it had been iced coffee that had melted a bit.  This did not bother me at all.  The gentle hint of vanilla was not as overpowering as other brands I had tried before, yet provided the gentle sweetness the coffee needed.  As promised on the bottle, this coffee from Chameleon was indeed “low-acid” as it did not produce that odd almost metallic taste that regular coffee leaves in your mouth.

I’d say that my first experience with Chameleon cold-brew coffee was a positive one, and I look forward to trying the other products they provided to me at the show.
