“Hey, welcome home.” So goes the standard greeting at this bright, friendly Old Pasadena coffee bar. As the name implies, the shop’s specialty is its in-house, 20-hour-long tea and coffee cold brews; the result is a menu of sweeter, smoother blends with subtle flavor enhancements that should satisfy even the most infrequent coffee drinkers. Do yourself a favor and try one of the milk teas ($4) with the most perfectly chewy, tasty boba. It’s a trendy spot, for sure—wooden bar tops, white tiles and edison bulbs—but the sun-drenched space feels comfortable enough to work (free Wi-Fi) and communal enough to chat away the afternoon.

When I used to work in Old Town Pasadena, there were so many coffee and tea choices within walking distance, the whole process of getting our caffeine buzz was a no brainer. One day a coworker took me to Home Brewed Bar for a coffee break.And I must say that there is nothing not to love. Hearing a warm, "Welcome Home" from the staff upon entry is so welcoming - and who doesn't love having the entire staff stop what they are doing and greet you?

And then there is the perfectly curated selection of 20-hour brewed teas and cold brew coffees that you can get in two different levels of strength. Perfectly chewy boba and other add-ins, as well as a selection of non-dairy milks, which is so critical for the lactose intolerant, like myself.

In the past I stuck with pretty simple flavors, but after seeing one particular drink posted on social media, I just had to try it. That was the Rootbeer Float Milk Tea pictured here. They found a wonderful way to blend the nostalgic taste of rootbeer with a solid tea and the creamy flavor. The drink was slightly fizzy too. I was so happy to opt for the whipped cream which turned out to be a taro whipped cream that was lavender in color. 

It made for the most crave worthy summer treat!
