Cold foam is a fluffy milk-based foam that you can top your coffee with instead of adding creamer or milk directly to your coffee. You can make it at home by following my step-by-step directions below.

What equipment is needed to make cold foam?

All you need is a blender and some type of milk frother. You can use an electric or handheld milk frother, but we recommend using the AER blender attachment because it’s easier to control the consistency of your cold foam this way.

Equipment

  • Vitamix Aer Disc + Container
  • Milk Frother

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tsp JAVY Coffee Concentrate (or your favorite brand of cold brew)
  • 8 oz Cold Water
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/8 cup 2% Milk
  • 1 tbs Caramel Syrup
  • 4 oz Ice
  • 2 tsp Sea Salt or Kosher Salt

Instructions
 

Cold Brew (1 serving)

  • Grab your favorite glass and fill it 1/2 way with ice.
  • Add 1-2 tsp of JAVY Coffee Concentrate and cold water. Mix well.

Salted Caramel Cold Foam (4 servings)

  • Combine 2% milk, heavy whipping cream, caramel syrup, in a bowl or pour into your blender with the AER blade. If you want a thicker consistency for your foam you can leave out the 2% milk.
  • Froth or blend until it is thick and foamy. To do this you can froth the mix with/in milk frother, whip the with a mixer, or using an Aer Disc Blade in your blender. To get the BEST results I recommend using the aerator disc like Starbucks does. I pour the mixture in my blender and set it to the lowest blender setting for 45 seconds.
  • Store unused cold foam in the fridge for 2 days.

Cold Foam Cold Brew Drink

  • Fill your favorite cup with ice, add cold brew, and top with your homemade Salted Caramel Cold Foam.

Notes

  • If you want your cold foam sweeter, simply add more caramel syrup.
  • If you like it saltier add more salt. If you don't like salt, don't add salt.
  • You can customize this drink however you want. You can even use different syrups besides caramel. I sometimes add Vanilla Paste to the cold foam and it is truly amazing!

What kind of milk does cold foam use?

What does cold foam taste like?

Cold foam is a frothy, creamy topping that is typically used on cold brew coffee. It’s made by shaking milk with coffee and ice until it becomes thick and foamy. The result is a delicious, caffeinated treat that can be enjoyed any time of day.

If you prefer a smooth, creamy coffee drink, this isn’t the drink for you: The cold foam tends to remain at the top of the drink and does not mix well. It’s also out of the question if you want milk alternatives like soy or almond milk.

What is the best milk for cold foam?

You can get away with only using 2% milk, but it is essential to add heavy whipping cream for a thicker cold foam.
