Cold Brew Coffee with Sweet Vanilla Cream

Author Jacqueline


  • 2/3 cup coffee grounds
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a large lidded jar (I used a mason jar), combine the coffee grounds and water. Let sit out at room temperature for at least 12 hours or overnight.
  • The next day, strain twice: first through a mesh strainer, and then through a coffee filter (to catch the silt). Coffee concentrate is now ready to use.
  • To use coffee, combine with water at a 1:1 ratio in a cup filled with ice. Add Sweet Vanilla Cream, if desired. (recipe follows)
  • In a small microwave safe cup or bottle, add the vanilla, sugar, and cream. Microwave for 1 minute and stir to dissolve sugar. Microwave for 30 seconds longer if needed.
