The secret to good coffee, of course, is the beans.
And beans are also the secret to Coffee Brake, a new alternative coffee-style drink from Montana - organic soybeans, to be precise.
Coffee Brake has no caffeine, lots of healthy soy protein and a surprisingly rich, mellow taste. (Look for French vanilla and hazelnut flavors in the fall.)
All things considered, it’s a pleasant alternative to the regular daily grind.
Price: About $6.50-$7 per pound.
