How To Easily Elevate Your Daily Coffee Game

Another day, another coffee! For those, like myself, who tend to drink coffee once or twice a day, it’s important to switch it up every once in a while. Yeah, there’s Starbucks but that could get expensive after my daily intake. With a few ingredients in your kitchen, you can make similar coffees for less – and experiment with them!

Lets switch up your daily caffeine intake with these different recipes I’ve compiled for you to keep your taste buds happy.

Salted Caramel Cold Brew with Cold Foam by Coffee At Three

Ingredients (by Coffee At Three)

Servings: 1

Salted Caramel Cold Brew

  • ¾ cup cold brew coffee or strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup ice

Cold Foam

  • ⅓ cup half & half
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup

Steps (by Coffee At Three)

  • Make cold foam.

Put half & half and simple syrup into a French press and pump plunger up and down 40 times. The milk will nearly double in volume.

  • Combine coffee, caramel sauce, and salt in a cocktail shaker. Shake well.

A cocktail shaker is the easiest to use but any airtight container can be used to shake the ingredients together. A jar with a tight lid or a wide-mouth water bottle will both work.

  • Assemble drink.

Pour salted caramel coffee into a cup with ice and top with cold foam.
