Vanilla Bean Cold Brew Recipe
If you're a coffee lover looking for a refreshing and delicious way to enjoy your caffeine fix during the summer months, vanilla bean cold brew coffee may be just what you're looking for. This sweet and flavorful beverage is simple to make at home, and it's a great alternative to hot coffee on a hot day. Of course, you always have the option of just adding some vanilla flavored creamer to a normal coffee, but until you’ve had the real deal, you don’t know what you’re missing. Here's how to make vanilla bean cold brew coffee:
In a large jar or pitcher, add five cups of cold water, the drop in one Woah Cold Brew Pouch
Split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and the pod to the pitcher.
Cover the jar or pitcher and let the mixture steep in the refrigerator for 18-24 hours. The longer you steep the coffee, the stronger the flavor will be. You can adjust the steeping time to your personal taste.
After the coffee has steeped, strain it through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the vanilla seeds. Discard the vanilla bean pod and seeds.
If desired, add sugar to the coffee and stir until dissolved. You can adjust the amount of sugar based on your preference.
Serve the cold brew coffee over ice and add milk or cream if desired.
Bonus tip to really rock your world - combine the strained seeds with some milk or cream (and a dash of sugar if you’d like) and use a frother to make a fresh vanilla cold foam to top your cold brew!
That's it! With just a few simple steps, you can make delicious vanilla bean cold brew coffee at home. This recipe is easy to customize based on your taste preferences, so feel free to experiment with different amounts of coffee, vanilla, and sugar.
