What’s in Starbucks Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew?
This delicious drink combines the rich flavor of cold brew coffee with the sweetness of cinnamon and caramel. Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
|Cold Brew||Starbucks’ signature cold brew coffee, which is slow-steeped for a smooth and rich flavor.|
|Cinnamon Caramel Syrup||A sweet and spicy syrup that adds a delicious cinnamon and caramel flavor to the drink.|
|Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam||A whipped cream topping made with vanilla syrup and heavy cream, which adds a creamy and sweet flavor to the drink.|
|Cinnamon Sugar Topping||A dusting of cinnamon and sugar on top of the cold foam, which adds an extra layer of sweetness and flavor.|
Cinnamon Caramel Syrup
The first key ingredient in this drink is the Cinnamon Caramel syrup. This syrup is made with a blend of cinnamon and caramel flavors, which gives the drink its signature taste. The syrup is added to the cold brew to sweeten it up and add a bit of spice.
Cold brew is the base of the drink. It’s made by steeping coarse coffee grounds in cold water for an extended period of time. This process results in a smooth, less acidic coffee that’s perfect for cold drinks.
To keep the drink cold, ice cubes are added to the cold brew. This helps to chill the drink and prevent it from getting too warm.
Cinnamon sugar is used to rim the glass. This adds a touch of sweetness and cinnamon flavor to each sip.
Heavy cream is what makes the sweet cream cold foam thick and rich. It’s added to the vanilla syrup to create a delicious, creamy topping for the drink.
To thin out the cream and make it pourable, 2% milk is added to the heavy cream and vanilla syrup mixture. This helps to create the perfect consistency for the sweet cream cold foam.
Vanilla syrup is used to add sweetness and flavor to the sweet cream cold foam. It’s made with simple syrup flavored with vanilla.
Ground cinnamon is used to make the cinnamon sweet cream cold foam. It’s added to the heavy cream, milk, and vanilla syrup mixture to create a delicious, cinnamon-flavored topping for the drink.

Tips and Variations
Here are some tips and variations to help you make the perfect drink:
- Customize the sweetness: The Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew is already a sweet drink, but if you find it too sweet, you can add fewer pumps of syrup or substitute the syrup for a sugar-free alternative. On the other hand, if you have a sweet tooth, you can add extra pumps of syrup or add a drizzle of caramel sauce on top.
- Homemade Cinnamon Caramel Syrup: If you happen to have Cinnamon syrup and Caramel syrup at home, and you’re not a total perfectionist, why not try mixing them together to create the Cinnamon Caramel syrup mentioned in the recipe? While it may not taste exactly like Starbucks’ specially crafted Cinnamon Caramel syrup, it’s a budget-friendly alternative that saves you from buying a new syrup.
- Try it with nitro: The Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew is already a delicious drink, but if you want to take it up a notch, you can use nitro cold brew instead of regular cold brew. Nitro cold brew is infused with nitrogen gas, which gives it a creamy and smooth texture. For information on how to make the nitro version, you can check out my other post.
