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).

How to Make Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Coffee at Home

Now that I can make my own cold brew coffee at home, I can save the money I was spending at Starbucks. To make your own Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Coffee at home, follow these directions.

While it’s not imperative to use collagen powder, I find that it gives it that rich, creamy flavor that the gums and other ingredients you find in Starbucks’ drinks provide.

This recipe for Vanilla Sweet Cream Coffee Creamer makes 8 ounces (I store it in an 8 ounce mason jar). I like to use one ounce per cup of coffee, so this recipe will sweeten 8 cups (give or take, depending upon your taste preferences).
