Going to your local coffee shop for a $5 cold brew is way better than making a watery iced coffee at home, right? Nope.

That’s because the best stuff you can get is actually in a can. You can still enjoy the rich, high-caffeine benefits of your daily brew, without any of that watered-down nonsense. Better yet, you can order these cans off Amazon and have them chilling in the fridge in just two days (or hit that Subscribe and Save button for an endless supply). Here are three of our favorite cold brew cans.

Editors’ Pick: High Brew Cold Brew Coffee (12 Count)

The Facts:

  • Smooth, never bitter
  • Twice the caffeine of traditional brewed coffee
  • Made with 100% Direct Trade arabica beans 

We have some pretty serious coffee drinkers in the office. One editor in particular considers coffee her lifeline and she swears by this canned cold brew. She explains, “I can’t function in the morning without a cup of coffee. I keep this cold brew stocked in my fridge at all times for a chilled beverage that I’d pay at least $4 for at a coffee shop. I just crack it open and stroll out the door…but don’t talk to me until it’s gone.”

Best Value: Rise Brewing Co. Original Black Nitro Cold Brew Coffee (4 Count)

The Facts:

  • Contains about two espresso shots
  • Cascading foam creates a velvety rich texture
  • USDA Organic Peruvian beans are 70% less acidic than hot brewed coffee 

Can’t kick your coffee shop habit? Grab this four-pack of USDA organic nitro cans for those moments of need. Pour it into a glass (with or without ice) and watch the foam cascade—this brand uses nitrogen (rather than carbonation) for a foamy effect that’s akin to pouring a draft Guinness. You’ll probably love it so much, your local barista will start worrying about your whereabouts.

Splurge-worthy: La Colombe Pure Black Cold-pressed Coffee (16 Count)

The Facts:

  • Brewed overnight, cold-pressed and filtered with no added sugars
  • Equivalent to 2.25 cups of coffee
  • Double-filtered for a smooth taste with strong coffee flavors

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city with La Colombe coffee shops, you know how good this brand is. Luckily for everyone else, the highly-caffeinated cans taste just like the real deal. Their beans are brewed overnight and then cold-pressed for a bold, naturally sweet flavor. For a creamy treat, add a dash of milk, just like you would in-store.
