If you don’t want to make your own green coffee bean extract, try our Dr. Smoothie Refreshers. We have the concentrates, or you can come to Cupper’s to try one off our beverage menu. Refreshers live up to their name when made with regular water. They’re even more amazing when they’re added to sparkling water or coconut milk. (Copycat Pink Drink anyone?)
