Coffee and ice cream: A popular flavor combo despite what it says to your body, i.e., "Be really alert while you get fat."

Well, what's the summer for if not living large. Get your beans and your cream — all while staying comfortably air-conditioned — with delivery from two of Manhattan's finest coffee and ice cream services.

Iced Coffee

birch coffee

Subscribe to Birch's monthly delivery service and they'll cart 64oz growlers of their cold brew to offices across Manhattan, up to 10 growlers per week. HQ'd in Flatiron, Birch crafts delicious brew by steeping beans in cold water overnight, then filtering them to create an inky, flavor-rich brew that’s every bit as strong but 65% less acidic than its hot counterpart. Simply pour over ice and that’s it.

From $18 | birchcoffee.com

Ice Cream

milkmade ice cream

Simply sign up online and choose a flavor from MilkMade, a monthly delivery service that uses local ingredients to craft small batch (and occasionally boozy) seasonal flavors. To wit, this month's "Rumble in Brighton", combining Red Hook’s Van Brunt Stillhouse with chunks of chocolate babka bread pudding from La Brioche Cafe in Brighton Beach.

Delivery is once per month, and the deadline for the following month is typically the 15th, but mention InsideHook in the “where did you hear about us?” field at signup and you’ll get special consideration. MilkMade never repeats a flavor, so stock up.
