Vietnamese coffee brand Copper Cow Coffee's mocha creamers made the top-five radar in terms of quantity sold. Mocha strikes fall notes, but it was rivaled by an opposing flavor profile from Republic of Tea. The national tea brand's Daily Beauty blueberry bavender single serve is another fast mover.
