What is Starbucks Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew?

This refreshing drink is a combination of cinnamon and caramel flavors swirled into Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew. It is then topped with cinnamon sweet cream cold foam and a dusting of cinnamon dolce topping.

Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew is a slow-steeped coffee that is infused with nitrogen when it’s poured, creating a velvety, smooth coffee that is topped with a gorgeous cascade of cold foam. The Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew is available year-round, so you can enjoy this delicious drink anytime you want.

What does the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew taste like?

The Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew has a lovely balance of decadent baking flavors with a delicate and creamy cold foam topping that seamlessly blends into the coffee with each sip. It is inspired by salted caramels and gooey sticky buns, making it a perfect treat for anyone with a sweet tooth. The cinnamon and caramel flavors are not overpowering, but rather complement the smooth and velvety texture of the Nitro Cold Brew, creating a refreshing and satisfying drink.

Are Nitro cold brews strong?

Nitro Cold Brews are known for their smooth and velvety texture, but they are also known for their strength. Nitrogen-infused coffee tends to be stronger and more concentrated than regular coffee. However, the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew is not overpowering in terms of caffeine content. It has a moderate amount of caffeine, making it a perfect drink for anyone who wants to enjoy a refreshing and flavorful coffee without the jitters.

What is the difference between a cold brew and a nitro cold brew at Starbucks?

Cold Brew

Cold brew is made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water for an extended period of time, usually around 12-24 hours. This slow steeping process extracts the coffee flavors and oils, resulting in a smooth and less acidic taste. At Starbucks, cold brew is served over ice and can be customized with your favorite milk or syrup.

Here are some key characteristics of Starbucks’ cold brew:

  • Smooth and less acidic taste
  • Served over ice
  • Can be customized with syrups and milk

Nitro Cold Brew

Nitro cold brew is made by infusing cold brew with nitrogen gas, which creates a creamy and velvety texture. The nitrogen bubbles also enhance the aroma and flavor of the coffee, resulting in a richer and more complex taste. At Starbucks, nitro cold brew is served on tap and without ice, allowing you to fully experience the creamy texture and bold flavor.

Here are some key characteristics of Starbucks’ nitro cold brew:

  • Creamy and velvety texture
  • Served without ice
  • Enhanced aroma and flavor
  • Bold and complex taste

Now that you’ve got a good grasp of this exciting new offering, it’s time to learn how to DIY a cup of it at home! Follow me as I guide you through the process.

Making a perfect Starbucks copycat Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew at home requires a few essential ingredients. Here are the ingredients you need to make this delicious drink:

Cold Brew and Water

The base of this drink is cold brew coffee and water. Cold brew coffee is made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water for an extended period, usually 12-24 hours. The result is a smooth and less acidic coffee concentrate that is perfect for making iced coffee drinks. If you want to save time, you can use pre-made bottled cold brew as a substitute, and the resulting drink will still be delicious.

Nitrous Oxide Gas

Nitrous oxide gas is used to create the velvety smooth texture of the Nitro Cold Brew. When the cold brew is infused with nitrous oxide, it creates tiny bubbles that give the drink a creamy texture.

Cinnamon & Caramel Syrup

Cinnamon syrup and Caramel syrup are the key ingredient that gives this drink its unique flavor. You can either purchase the pre-made Cinnamon Caramel syrup from Starbucks online store or mix your own at home by combining Cinnamon syrup and Caramel syrup. The choice is yours!

Cinnamon Dolce Topping

Cinnamon Dolce Topping is a mixture of cinnamon and sugar that is sprinkled on top of the drink for added flavor and texture.

Heavy Whipping Cream and Whole Milk

Heavy whipping cream is used to make the sweet cream cold foam that tops the drink. It is what gives the foam its thick and rich texture. Whole milk is added to the cream to thin it out and make it pourable.

Vanilla Syrup

Vanilla syrup is a simple syrup that is flavored with vanilla. It adds sweetness and flavor to the sweet cream cold foam.

Ground Cinnamon

Ground cinnamon is used to make the cinnamon sweet cream cold foam. It is added to the whipped cream mixture to give it a hint of cinnamon flavor.

Tips and Tricks

If you want to make the perfect Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew at home, here are some tips and tricks for you:

Use the Right Ingredients

To make the perfect Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew, you need to use the right ingredients. You can use Starbucks coffee beans or any other coffee beans that you like to make a cup of cold brew. The cinnamon syrup, caramel syrup and cinnamon dolce sprinkle topping are also essential ingredients that you can buy from Starbucks or any other grocery store.

Shake the Canister Well

Before dispensing the coffee into cup, make sure to shake the canister well for about 30 seconds. This will ensure that the coffee is mixed well with the nitrogen gas, creating a creamy and smooth texture.

Experiment with Different Syrups

If you want to try something new, you can experiment with different syrups to add to your Cinnamon Caramel Cream Nitro Cold Brew. For example, you can try adding some hazelnut or vanilla syrup to give your cold brew a different flavor. Just make sure to adjust the amount of syrup to your liking.

Serve immediately

Nitro Cold Brew is best enjoyed when served immediately after pouring to capture the unique nitrogen texture and taste. The cold brew may lose some of its effervescence and creaminess over time, so it’s best to serve it promptly. If you must save the drink for later, refrigerate it and consume it as soon as possible to preserve its flavors and texture as much as possible.


Have ya’ll tried the new cold brew? I saw this hack for making nitro cold brew at home using a whipped creamer 🧐 unfortunately the nitro bubbles disipated VERY fast, so it didnt have the same velvety texture, but at least we gave it a try! #nitrocoldbrew #coldbrew #caramelcinnamoncoldbrew #caramel #cinnamon #starbucks #coffee #coffeeaddict #coffeetiktok #coffeelover #formerbarista Cold Brew Recipe: -1 pump of Caramel syrup (I used jordan’s skinny syrup) -1 pump of brown sugar cinnamon syrup (I used the one from Torani as this was the only cinnamon syrup I had on hand. If you have like a cinnamon bun or vanilla cinnamon syrup, I’m sure that will work great as well!) Cold foam: -5 tbsp of half and half -2 pumps of vanilla syrup -dash of cinnamon -top with cinammon sugar topping
