Layered Cold Brew Latte

  • Cold brew coffee, milk, simple syrup, and ice are needed to make this caffeinated drink.
  • Cold brew coffee takes at least 8 hours to make, so be sure to make that first.
  • The trick with layering is sugar and ice. The bottom layer must be sweeter than the top layer. Ice helps to keep the layers separated. Easy!

How to Make Cold Brew Latte

STEP 1: Make quick simple syrup.

Combine hot water and brown sugar and stir until sugar completely dissolves. Quick simple syrup is done!

I have an electric kettle with temperature setting and that’s what I use to boil water instead of using the stovetop. I always use filtered water whenever possible.

STEP 2: Assemble the drink. Milk, simple syrup, ice, then cold brew.

Start with pouring milk into a cup.

Add quick simple syrup and stir to combine.

The trick to keep it layered is to make sure the bottom layer has more sugar content than the one above.

The ice goes in next.

Pour the cold brew directly on top of the ice.

Cold Brew Latte Tips

  • The more sugar the bottom layer (milk) has, the more of a separation you’ll see between the milk and the coffee.
  • Don’t add cold brew coffee that’s already sweetened since you want the top layer unsweetened.
  • Always pour the coffee directly on top of the ice instead of into the milk to keep the layers separated.
  • Add more milk (1/3 cup) if you want more of the milk layer to show.

Questions You May Have

Can I make this with regular iced coffee?

You can, but make the iced coffee double-strength so that you can still taste the coffee with the milk and ice.

Do I need to use brown sugar?

I prefer brown sugar so that’s what I used but you can use any sugar or sweetener and make it into a simple syrup. (Here’s my quick simple syrup guide.)

I like my iced lattes without any sugar. Can I still make this drink?

The drink won’t be layered without the sugar.
