Spring is right around the corner which means cold brew season is quickly approaching! Stock up on your Split Rock Coffee filter packs to ensure you’re ready for cold coffee season. Although our cold brew is unbelievably smooth, here are a couple tips to enhance your brew.
Use an ice cube tray to freeze coffee cubes. Use these frozen cubes to keep your cold brew chilled without watering it down! This is an awesome tip for those who love strong cold brew. If you want to sweeten it up, make some simple syrup using your favorite flavors. Cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg are popular options to spice up your coffee. A great spring flavor combination to consider is lavender and mint. Simple syrup is easy to make and dissolves in cold brew with ease. Normal granulated sugar does not integrate into the coffee, as there is no heat to melt it.
Coconut milk or coconut water are other unique additives. Pouring in a splash of coconut milk into your cold brew not only sweetens it up, it creates a rich, creamy texture. On the other hand, coconut water will dilute the cold brew a bit, but according to coconut water fanatics, it makes cold brew taste just like chocolate milk! We’ll leave that up to you to decide.
Have you ever tried Vietnamese iced coffee? It is a deliciously creamy treat that everyone should have the opportunity to indulge. You can even make a version for yourself at home! All you need is sweetened condensed milk, cold brew, and ice. The sweetened condensed milk provides an irresistible flavor and enticing texture.
Non-dairy products have also been on the rise in the coffee industry. Many people opt for almond, oat, or soy milk as a healthy alterative to creamer. These nut milks provide health benefits as well as a distinguished flavor. Many brands offer flavored non-dairy milks that are designed to enhance the natural taste of the bean. You can always make your own simple syrup and combine it with your favorite non-dairy milk!
How about a coffee sundae to start off the day? Add a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream to the top of your cold brew and watch the magic happen. The ice cream will melt into the cold brew, creating a creamy, delectable treat. Take it a step further and blend your cold brew and ice cream into a delightful coffee milkshake. Top with whipped cream for extra love and positivity.
Turn your cold brew into a mini non-alcoholic cocktail by adding bitters. Shake your cold brew coffee with simple syrup and bitters before pouring over ice. Garnish with a lemon peel and sip away! Turn it into an actual evening cocktail by adding a shot of bourbon.
