Forget standing in those coffee shops lines and make your favorite cold brew lattes right at home! My smooth Iced Lavender Cold Brew Latte is the perfect drink to start your day!
I love coffee so much, it’s honestly the first thing I think of when I wake up. I used to set my coffee machine up every night to brew the next morning. My wife and I both prefer to drink iced coffee for different reasons. When I was working in the corporate world, I used to take an hour long train ride into the loop. The brown line was always packed like sardines in a can, and the last thing I wanted to drink was a hot mug of coffee in the middle of the summer. I discovered cold brew a couple years ago and fell in love with the smooth flavor of this chilled beverage!
What is cold brew?
Are there any benefits to drinking cold brew coffee?
We love the smooth taste of cold brew here at the Dinner Fairy house, but I was happy to discover that it also comes with some benefits! First, is it less acidic than a traditional hot cup of joe. This happens because coffee grounds, or more specifically the various oils, acids, and other aromatic molecules, are most easily extracted at about 195-205 degrees. It’s perfect for drinking by itself, or making lattes! Scroll down to learn how to make my Iced Lavender Cold Brew Latte!
What’s the difference between cold brew and iced coffee?
I still want to enjoy hot coffee, but don’t want the bitterness
Don’t fret! You can still enjoy a hot cup of coffee using Java House cold brew pods. Just heat up the water before adding it to your cold brew mix.
What other cold brew flavors can I enjoy from Java House?
Java House cold brew pods come in a few different varieties:
Colombian – a smooth medium roast
Ethiopian – a light roast with an earthy flavor
Sumatran – the boldest roast for a true coffee lover
Decaf – for those who love coffee but don’t want to be up all night
How do I make cold brew with Java House pods?
Every cold brew pod from Java House has that delicious taste of cold brew in concentrate form. What does that mean? By just adding 8 ounces of water (hot or cold), you can have a delicious cup of cold brew in just minutes! Java House takes does the leg work for you, so you don’t have to steep coffee beans overnight. Have a single serve brewer machine at home? Simply pop the liquid pod into your single serve brewer to enjoy a smoother cup of cold brew hot. You’ll be happy to learn that Java House cold brew pods don’t have any preservatives, additives, or coffee derivatives. Just great tasting cold brew!
