Sugarfina x Alfred Coffee: Coffee Infused Gummy Bears Taste Test

Diana Chan May 12, 2019 product

Sugarfina and Alfred Coffee collaborated to create the world’s first caffeinated cold brew bears. They worked together to create this fun line of new gummy bears loaded with caffeine. There are 3 flavours – iced vanilla latte, cold brew and bourbon cold brew. Instead of drinking your favourite brew, you can eat them in gummy format and still get a buzz going on. It took them 2 years to refine the product, so they really worked hard to get the taste right.

If you’re not familiar with Alfred Coffee, they are based in LA and they are a very popular coffee shop known for their tagline – “But First, Coffee.”

We got to try all 3 flavours for our taste test.

Iced Vanilla Latte

These gummies are made with Alfred’s signature Iced Vanilla Latte. Each mini cup size (3.5oz) has 0.5 shots of espresso and one Coffee Bag (12oz) has 1.5 shots of espresso.

Of the 3 types, this one was more of my favourite as the sweetness of the gummy bear paired well with the vanilla latte and the taste is more mild. The aroma is very nice and strong.

Cold Brew

The Cold Brew Bears are made with Alfred’s signature Cold Brew. Each mini cup size (3.5oz) has 1 shot of espresso and one Coffee Bag (12oz) has 3 shots of espresso. Definitely stronger than the Iced Vanilla Latte.

It does have a slight bitter taste to it and a stronger coffee taste. You definitely need to be a coffee lover to really be into this.

Bourbon Cold Brew

The Bourbon Cold Brew Bears are made with Alfred’s signature Bourbon Cold Brew. It’s definitely boozy and buzzy. Each mini cup size (3.5oz) has 1 shot of espresso and one Coffee Bag (12oz) has 3 shots of espresso.

Definitely stronger than the Iced Vanilla Latte and more bitter and tangy than the Cold Brew.

Sizes

The Cold Brew Bear comes in 3 different formats that you can get in-stores – Mini Coffee Cup, Coffee Bag, and a Tumbler + 2 pack combo. Works great as gifts for the coffee lover.

3.5 oz mini coffee cup

12 oz coffee bags

Tumbler + cold brew and iced vanilla latte

Final Thoughts

It’s definitely a fun collaboration between Sugarfina and Alfred Coffee. Very unique flavours and Iced Vanilla Latte was our favourite of the 3 flavours. We love the packaging of the items and its so darn cute. How could you not get it for a coffee lover?
