Recently Scott and I went on a coffee date to Lola Coffee in downtown Phoenix. Last school year I used to go to Lola all the time, but with my new schedule I haven't much time to make my way down there before or after class. It was nice to go there, though, and relax in such a pretty space.
Scott and I both got iced coffees, and sat on their comfy couch because pretty much every other spot in the shop was taken. It was a busy afternoon at Lola!
If I had to make a choice about best ice coffee, I would have to say Lola takes the cake (with corporate coffee shop The Coffee Bean a second, only because I drink it so much and I'm always able to concentrate in their shops). I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure they use a cold brew system. Usually, I don't like iced coffee, or toddy, made this way because of the taste and the smell, but I'm thinking that if they do use this method they don't let it sit for as long (eliminating the funky taste and smell).
Lola has a few notebooks that they leave on the tables for people to write or draw in. While flipping through the pages of one notebook Scott found a few of his own drawings.
And on the back was the Tea Talk symbol Scott drew for me. Awwh.
Do you like iced coffee? Do you have a prefer method of how it's made?
