Salt Foam Cold Brew Coffee (In 4 Steps)
One of the favorites in cold brew coffee shops around the world. The contrast between the salt foam and the slightly sweet cold brew is just fantastic! But if you don’t want to go to a coffee shop to have a glass of this wonderful drink, how do you make it?
What you’ll Need
- Cold Brew
- Maple Syrup
- Vanilla Extract
The first step is to brew your cold brew (or buy). Make sure to use beans or coffee ground good for cold brew. Depending on how you like your cold brew, you probably should use dark roast or medium. A light roast will probably not give a taste strong enough for this drink.
If you don’t know what coffee to buy, I recommend some espresso beans.
Use a cold brew maker or french press and fill it with the coffee and water. Approximately 1:5 coffee to water ratio.
Let it sit in the fridge for 18-24hrs.
Time to make cold brew foam.
You will need some sort of mixer or a milk foamer.
Add about 1/4 cup of cream (for one serving) to a container in which you can whisk the foam (or directly to the milk foamer if you are using one).
Then add a pinch of salt, one small spoon of maple syrup and some drops of vanilla extract.
It is important that you are making whipped cream. The cream should be loosely whipped so you get a foam.
Time to compose the drink.
Take a glass and fill it with some ice. Add your cold brew and some extra water depending on how strong your cold brew is.
Now, before adding the salt foam, add 1-2 spoons of maple syrup to the cold brew and stir. This will create that contrast between the sweet cold brew and the sal foam which we are looking for.
Add the foam on the top of the cold brew and you are done!
