Easy homemade cold brew coffee infused with vanilla bean and served with Simply Pure Vanilla Coffee Creamer. This smooth, creamy and slightly sweet vanilla coffee is just as good as the coffee house versions.
Coarsely grind the coffee beans and add to a large pitcher or bowl filled with 4 cups filtered water. Add vanilla bean and stir to combine. Cover loosely and refrigerate for 12-15 hours.
Line a mesh strainer with cheesecloth or coffee filters and place over a large cup or bowl. Pour the coffee through the strainer, reserve the vanilla bean and discard the grounds. Rinse off the vanilla bean to remove any coffee grounds, then use a paring knife to scrape out the beans from inside the pod. Add the vanilla beans to the coffee and whisk to combine. Serve coffee over ice with Simply Pure Vanilla Creamer. If your coffee is really strong and concentrated you can dilute it with a little water. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge.
Note: Cold brew coffee tends to be more caffeinated than traditionally brewed coffee. When making cold brew I typically mix regular and decaf beans before grinding them. Feel free to make this all decaf, all regular, or half and half.
