The article focuses on the increasing demand for iced coffee drinks. According to the National Coffee Association, more than 41 million Americans switch to iced coffee in spring and summer months. Operators are offering a wide range of flavored and ethnic-inspired iced coffee drinks that take the swelter out of summer--often selling them at a nice premium over regular iced coffee. Flavored iced coffees are a mainstay at Nancy's Coffee, in business since 1979 and now with 23 locations in the Northeast. Nancy's menu includes the Iced Caramel Turtle--brewed iced coffee with milk, caramel sauce and hazelnut syrup--as well as a line of "create your own iced coffees." With 245 neighborhood bakery coffeehouses in 17 states, Bruegger's launched a June iced coffee blitz, rolling out two fair trade-certified blueberry-flavored iced coffees. Alcohol is getting into the iced coffee mix at other venues. Bartenders at Rosa Mexicano, with outposts in New York and Washington D.C., offer the Beso Maya, an iced coffee mixed with Xtabetun liquor and butterscotch schnapps.
