Our go-to herb for adding a bright burst of flavor to any cold brew coffee sip is mint. Made with our Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker, this recipe highlights the refreshingly sweet flavors of mint that give this brew a cooling effect as you sip it.
Unsweetened canned coconut milk is key here (you’re only using 4 tablespoons), as it brings a subtle richness to the table that the boxed version never can. Plus, the pure coconut flavor balances the bold cold brew coffee concentrate while still letting the brisk flavor shine. As we share in our Cold Brew Coffee Maker instructions, we recommend a robust Medium roast that is coarsely ground.
Finish off the sip with aromatic vanilla and a sweetener of your choice (a touch of maple is just right, but if you prefer raw sugar then be sure to add it along with the fresh mint as it helps to extract the mint flavor when muddling). With just a few simple ingredients your standard latte effortlessly feels special. Whether it’s a bright wakeup call or afternoon pick me up, this Coconut Mint Cold Brew latte will surely hit the refresh button.
Takeya Tip: Double the recipe and pour directly into your Takeya Traveler (no ice needed since the traveler will keep your sip cool).
