The distinct flavor of coffee -earthy, robust, aromatic - is something that most of us coffee drinkers crave for. But the great thing about coffee is its versatility. There are at least a hundred and one ways of enjoying your favorite morning drink. Nitro cold brew coffee’s natural sweetness and velvety smooth finish go so well with different combinations of flavors, one of which is vanilla.
Enjoying the Sweet Taste of Vanilla in Nitro Coffee
Vanilla is one of the most popular (and healthiest) coffee add-ons and it’s not surprising that this spice is very popular among coffee drinkers. The earthy, rich flavor of coffee goes so well with the sweet, creamy taste of vanilla.
You can transform the taste of your regular nitro coffee with vanilla extract for a sweet, satisfying finish or get the flavored vanilla nitro coffee for a fuss-free morning or afternoon drink.
If you are making your own vanilla coffee, try to get fresh vanilla bean or pure vanilla extract instead of the cheap, processed extract. Just slice the vanilla bean in the middle, scrape off the vanilla beans and add these to the brew. The longer you keep the vanilla beans in your brew, the stronger the flavor will be.
But if you cannot find vanilla beans or you have no time to customize your own nitro brew, you can always buy flavored nitro coffee. This way, you don’t have to prep the coffee, a cup is ready to serve in seconds.
