Until I’ve had my morning coffee, I am a disaster. Forming sentences, thinking and general functioning are way too hard. That morning jolt is essential to get me going for the day, let me tell you. In the hot weather I lived for iced coffees until I discovered something even better. Cold brew coffee has become my new obsession. It tastes better to me because rather than just putting regular drip brewed coffee over ice, this stuff brews slowly in the refrigerator for a much smoother, less acidic taste. I first tried it at that big ol’ coffee chain that we all know but I can’t spend $6 every time I need my fix. So I started making my own at home! I found a cold brew pitcher for cheap on amazon and I love how simple it is. You can get yours here to make yours too! Best of all, if you purchase through that affiliate link I make a small profit to help keep the blog going.
I simply poured the coffee into glasses and poured a quarter of the foam over each glass. Some blended in and some made a lovely layer on top of the coffee. Oh man, no need to go to a coffee shop for a good cold brew my friends! These are so delicious with the smooth, refreshing coffee and luscious foam on top. Hope you all love them! Stay caffeinated!! xoxo
It is so simple and yummy to make your own cold brew coffee at home with a wonderful vanilla sea salt cold foam topping to really make it decadent!
- 1 cup ground coffee whichever your fave is
- 1 quart cold filtered water
- 1 cup low fat milk
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 pinch cinnamon
Add the ground coffee to the filter of your cold brew pitcher. Then fill the pitcher with the water and put the filter in it, sealing the pitcher with the lid. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours to brew. In the morning, get out a blender and combine the milk, vanilla, salt and cinnamon in it. Run it for a minute until it is a nice, bubbly foam. Evenly distribute the coffee and pour 1/4 of the foam over each glass. Serve and enjoy!!
