If you enjoy drinking Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Coffee, learn how to make this copycat recipe at home.
I love my morning cup(s) of coffee. There is something about the ritual of waking up every morning to a delicious cup of coffee. However, during the summer months I don’t cherish the heat of my cup of coffee as much as I do during the winter.
Since it has been so hot this summer, I started ordering the Starbucks Sweet Cream Cold Brew Coffee when I go in there. I love how cold brew coffee doesn’t have the same bitter acids and oils that you taste in traditional full immersion or hot brew coffees.
Instead, cold-brew coffee extracts the natural flavors and aromatics of your coffee without those bitter flavors. It makes for a much more balanced and smooth cup of coffee that’s more enjoyable.
While I keep seeing cold brew coffee pop up at the store and coffee shops, I did not know how to make it at home. So I was thrilled when I found out that I could get a small cold-brew coffee maker for home.
It stores nicely in the counter so I can use it during the warm summer months and works well. When I want hot coffee, I use my Keurig (along with compostable coffee pods).
