Let’s get back to how to make the best coffee at home!
If you are someone who’s looking to transition from drive-thru to at home brews, the first step in delicious at home coffee is getting the right setup. We are big fans of the Ninja Coffee Bar because it has SO many capabilities. You can brew both coffee and tea hot, iced, cold brew and multiple sizes. If you’re more of a cold brew on the regular type person, the Toddy Cafe is a must have (restocking soon)! With the Toddy you can brew a large batch of cold brew concentrate (vs. the Ninja that brews by the cup, tumbler or carafe. Either way, these are our two favorite brewing methods for busy moms!
How to kick your Irish Cream coffee up a notch
Now that you know our favorite brewing methods, let’s chat about the perfect mix-ins for Irish Cream!
- Silk ‘ The Sweet Oat Latte One’ – This one adds just a touch of creamy sweetness and is one we love to keep on hand at all times. It’s also very similar to sweet creams we’ve tried previously!
- Chobani ‘Paddy’s Lucky Batch’ – Think chocolate mint cookie meets coffee creamer. This one seems to be a unicorn and hard to find, but all the searching is worth it when you try it paired with Irish Cream. If you have a Stop & Shop or Giant grocery store in your area, that’s where we have had the most luck. This pairing is perfection and for sure a community favorite!
- Coffeemate ‘Natural Bliss Chocolate’ – If you’re a chocolate fan, this was our favorite for rich & creamy. But grab your favorite brand of chocolate creamer and blend it into your mug for a super decadent treat!
To add the perfect in-cafe touch at home, you can use your frother to blend up a hot or cold foamed topping. Dairy blends best, non-dairy will just take a bit longer to froth – OR add a big dollop of whipped cream! If you want a little something to top that foam or whipped cream with we love a chocolate syrup drizzle, or shake of cocoa powder or cinnamon. Don’t have cocoa powder? A little bit of hot cocoa works just as well!
