Make it a double: Two great coffee drinks

In honor of Fly After 5 becoming a bi-monthly publication, we’re here to bring you twice the Lancaster County fun. That means twice the music, twice the food and twice the arts and culture. Be on the lookout for our first two issues Sept. 1 and Sept. 15.

It doesn’t matter how nice the weather is, Monday is still Monday. You’ll need coffee in the morning, and coffee again in the afternoon. (Frankly, the same rule applies to Tuesday. And Wednesday. OK, all week…)

If you happen to work in downtown Lancaster like we do, you’re lucky to have some great coffee choices within easy walking distance.

Here are two that we keep coming back to at Team Fly:

The Velvet Hammer at Square One

If you have the time to sit and linger over a cup of cold-brewed coffee, you owe it to yourself to head to Square One Coffee at 145 N. Duke St. and try the Velvet Hammer. It’s not only a tasty cold-brew, it’s served on a nitro tap line. You know, like a Guinness stout, or any number of other beers that benefit from that creamy-smooth nitro texture. Another awesome point – it comes in its own cool glass!
Cold brew bottles from Passenger

These little gems are available in two flavors (I prefer the “slightly sweet”), and they’re perfect for a chilled caffeine fix on the go. We usually pick ’em up at the Passenger shop at 7 W. King St., or at Prince Street Cafe, at 15 N. Prince St.
