The Duggars may seem traditional, but Jessa Duggar Seewald is totally on top of the latest coffee trends. She recently shared her recipe for a cold brew vanilla latte.
Cold-brewing coffee involves steeping coffee grounds in cold water, usually overnight. The resulting coffee is less acidic and bitter than traditional coffee and tastes fresher than hot coffee that's been cooled. It also has a bit more caffeine, which I'm sure comes in handy when you have 18 siblings to deal with.
This recipe shows that it's super easy to make, and you can create your favorite iced beverages with it too.
Good morning, cold brew! This style of coffee-making soaks grounds on the countertop for 12-24 hrs, and creates a coffee concentrate that you mix--1 part coffee to 3 parts water or milk (hot or cold). Cold brew is up to 60% less acidic than typical, hot-brewed coffee, and it keeps fresh in the refrigerator for up to two weeks! It's our fav! You can use regular pre-ground beans, or grind your own--preferably medium-course. (haha! And yes, this batch is more "coarse-ground" than normal 'cause I was in a hurry yesterday didn't do a thorough job grinding the beans... but it still tastes FABULOUS!)
Jessa's favorite use for cold brew? An iced vanilla latte. Making your latte at home is nice because you can customize it (and it's way cheaper). She combines 3 ounces of cold brew, 9 ounces of the milk of your choice (dairy, almond, soy, etc.) and some agave nectar to sweeten things up a bit. Jessa recommends 1 tablespoon and says the resulting beverage tastes just like a vanilla latte.
You can also add your own extracts to change the flavor — some vanilla extract for an even more flavorful brew, a drop of almond to add some nuttiness or even rum extract for a fun but booze-free (Duggar-approved) coffee mocktail.
I love that cold brew is less acidic/bitter tasting when compared to normal hot-brewed coffee! @ben_seewald thinks it tastes so good that he just adds water, but I'm not that brave! No black coffee for me! Here's my favorite way to drink it: 3oz cold brew, 9oz milk, and agave nectar to sweeten (around 1 tbsp or so). Tastes sorta like a vanilla latte! (Since the cold brew is concentrate, it's 1 part coffee to 3 parts water or milk. You can add the water/milk hot, or go for the iced version if that's what you prefer.)
So instead of shelling out all your money at the coffee shop down the street, channel Jessa Duggar Seewald, and get on the homemade cold brew coffee bandwagon.
