You could say that Michael Rideout and Taylor Prater have got it made. When they started in 2015, they were delivering their cold-brewed coffee by bicycle, serving it at local events from a keg hooked up to the back of the bike. This week, their canned Made con leche coffees started selling in Publix stores, and their products will be in every Publix by Oct. 1.
“It’s been a little crazy,” Rideout said Tuesday. “We have a freight company that picks up from us — it’s cold shipped, under 40 degrees — and they take it to distribution centers in Lakeland, Deerfield, Jacksonville and Orlando.”
