Nitro coffee has been around a year or so in Phoenix. Suddenly it is popular again, and it seems every shop is getting on the bandwagon.
Drinking a nitro cold brew is a bit like drinking a beer, but without the hops. I had a nitro at Peixoto Coffee on Saturday morning and it was super-smooth. I had the large, and at $4.50 it isn’t cheap, but it stays frothy while you drink it, and tastes amazing. Definitely one of those coffee drinks that you’ll want to try at least one time — especially if you are already a fan of cold brew.
Just for comparison, I also ordered a normal cold brew while visiting Peixoto. Their cold brew is really smooth and goes down easy. Good stuff.
They are also serving an affogato nitro drink, which looks delicious. Think of it as a root beer float with cold nitrogen infused toddy. I’m going to have to try that next time!
Peixoto Coffee was really busy when we stopped in. They had three people working the bar and taking orders, and there must have been 20 or more patrons enjoying themselves. It’s a sweet place to hang out in downtown Chandler.
