Salted Caramel Cold Brew

If you're a fan of the Starbucks salted caramel cold brew, you have to try this at-home version. It's made with caramel coffee beans that have been steeped in the refrigerator to make a homemade cold brew. Then, top this drink with a salted version of sweet cream cold foam. This recipe makes a whole batch of caramel cold brew so you can make this drink throughout the week!

  • 1 cup coarsely ground caramel flavored coffee beans
  • 3 cups cool water
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
  • 1 ounce 2% milk
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup divided
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt


  • Add ground caramel flavored coffee beans and water to a 32 ounce (1 liter) glass jar. Stir or shake to combine until all the grounds are fully covered with water. Screw on the glass jar lid.
  • Set glass jar in the refrigerator to steep for 18 hours.
  • Place a mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter over a medium-sized bowl. Pour the brewed coffee into the coffee filter and allow to slowly strain. This may take up to 15 minutes. Discard the coffee grounds in the trash can (not down a garbage disposal).
  • Add heavy cream, 2% milk, and ¼ ounce simple syrup to a high powdered blender. Blend for 45 seconds until a thick foam has formed.
  • To serve, add ½ cup ice, 4 ounces caramel cold brew coffee, and the remaining ½ ounce simple syrup to a glass. Top with cold foam mixture.


Store leftover caramel cold brew in the refrigerator for 7 - 10 days. You should make about 2 ⅓ cups of caramel cold brew from this recipe.
