A Love Letter To Coffee | Cold Brew Method + Hazelnut Milk Recipe + Lavender Honey Syrup

About a year ago, I embarked on a journey which led to very serious relationship; I’m talking about my relationship (ahem, love affair) with cold brew coffee, and the journey of which I speak is creating cold brew at home. I realize that I sound a bit dramatic, but let’s be honest-coffee is of the utmost importance. Cold brew coffee is practically everywhere you look now, it is super trendy and sounds like something that would require you to possess a serious set of barista skills, an intricate coffee know-how, and maybe even a man-bun, suspenders and horn rimmed glasses (just sayin’) BUT, this is most certainly not the case. I am here to tell you first hand: cold brew coffee is literally the easiest method of coffee making I’ve ever come across (literally).  My boyfriend and I cannot live without our cold brew now, and to be honest I can’t really remember life before it. Not only is it the perfect way to stay caffeinated and cooled off in the warmer months, but the method of cold brewing results in less acidic and smoother tasting coffee (a win win, if you ask me).  The coffee is delicious on it’s own, but sometimes I like to dress it up with some homemade hazelnut milk and lavender honey. Below you will find recipes for the perfect cold brew coffee, hazelnut milk, and lavender honey.
