Get a cup of joe with your scoops: NadaMoo’s ice cream shop launches a coffee program

NadaMoo's flagship shop now has coffee drinks, too.

NadaMoo, Austin’s beloved purveyor of dairy-free ice cream, is launching a coffee program at its newly open brick-and-mortar shop on South Lamar Boulevard.

The NadaMoo Scoop Shop now sells espresso, house-made cold brew and lattes made with plant-based milks, along with original creations that include three seasonal drinks to help you feel like fall has come to Austin: the Salted Bourbon Caramel Latte, Brown Rice Burnt Cinnamon Horchata and Cereal Milk Latte. 

Leading the establishment of the coffee program at NadaMoo, which makes vegan ice cream and other frozen treats with organic coconut milk, is Jesse Garcia. He previously helped to develop beverage programs at Halcyon Coffee Bar and vegan-focused Beer Plant in Austin and Paramour Bar in San Antonio, according to a news release, and has crafted a program that offers something extra to customers of the shop.

Like the ice cream at NadaMoo, all the coffee drinks with milk as an ingredient will feature only plant-based milk options such as soy, almond and coconut, the main milk in use. NadaMoo has been making dairy-free frozen goods since 2004, primarily through selling cartons at retailers. The Scoop Shop at 1701 S. Lamar Blvd. is its flagship spot.

“We are so excited to expand our team and offer this coffee program at the Scoop Shop,” NadaMoo CEO Daniel Nicholson said in the news release. “We’ve had this dream of having a physical space in Austin, NadaMoo!’s hometown, for many years and to see it come to life has been really special.”

Get in the mood for fall with each of the three seasonal beverages. The Salted Bourbon Caramel Latte features house-made salted caramel syrup made with locally produced Treaty Oak Distilling bourbon. The Brown Rice Burnt Cinnamon Horchata also has autumnal flavors thanks to the addition of brown rice and toasted pecans. And the Cereal Milk Latte will taste like breakfast and your caffeine jolt all in one.

There are also three seasonal ice cream flavors: the London Fog, Apple Cider Pie and Saturday Morning Cereal (which no doubt pairs well with the Cereal Milk Latte).

The NadaMoo Scoop Shop is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more information, visit facebook.com/DairyFreeRevolution.
