To make the Starbucks Golden Foam Cold Brew Recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

Sweet Cream

The sweet cream is the base of the foam. You will need 100 ml of sweet cream to make this recipe. Starbucks uses a special blend of heavy cream and 2% milk to make their sweet cream. It has a rich and creamy taste and a smooth texture.

Olive Oil

To thin the sweet cream, you will need 2 pumps of olive oil. The olive oil helps the cream mix into the drink more easily, rather than just sitting on top. Compared to Starbucks’ usual sweet cream, the slightly thinner cream mixed into the drink more nicely.

Vanilla Syrup

Add 1 pump of vanilla syrup to give the drink a sweet and aromatic flavor. The vanilla syrup is made from vanilla flavoring, sugar, and water. It has a rich and sweet taste that complements the coffee.

Cold Brew

You will need 1 cup of cold brew to make the Golden Foam Cold Brew. Cold brew is made by steeping coarsely ground coffee beans in cold water for 12-24 hours. This process creates a smooth and less acidic coffee concentrate that is perfect for iced coffee drinks.

Ice Cubes

Lastly, you will need ice cubes to chill the drink. You can use regular ice cubes or coffee ice cubes for an extra coffee flavor boost.


Step-by-Step Instructions

Making a Starbucks Golden Foam Cold Brew is easy and fun. Here are the step-by-step instructions you need to follow to make your own delicious cup of coffee at home.

1. Make golden foam

To make the golden foam, add 2 pumps of olive oil to the milk frother. Fill the frother with sweet cream up to 100ml and froth until you get that light, foamy texture. As it’s frothing, it’s starting to turn a different color, more golden. This is what gives the drink its signature golden color.

2. Add vanilla syrup to the cup

Add 1 pump of vanilla syrup to your Starbucks cup. This adds a subtle sweetness to the drink and balances out the bitterness of the coffee.

3. Pour cold brew into the cup

Pour your cold brew into the cup until it reaches the third line. This is the base of the drink and provides the rich, bold flavor that we all know and love. Cold brew needs to be prepared in advance for at least 12 hours, but if you’re looking for convenience and time-saving, you can always opt for ready-to-drink bottled cold brew, which doesn’t compromise on taste compared to the one you make yourself.

4. Add some ice

Finally, top off the drink with the golden foam that you made earlier, as it is the soul of the entire beverage! This adds a creamy, velvety texture to the drink and gives it its signature look. Add the lid and your Golden Foam Cold Brew is ready to enjoy!


Tips and Tricks

A few tips and tricks to help you make and serve the perfect Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew at home:

  • Start with a good quality cold brew coffee. You can make your own or use store-bought. Just make sure it’s smooth and not too bitter, as the olive oil can amplify any bitterness in the coffee.
  • Use extra-virgin olive oil for the best flavor and texture. You only need a small amount, about a teaspoon per serving. By the way, Starbucks officially uses Partanna brand’s extra virgin olive oil.
  • Blend or froth the olive oil with a touch of vanilla syrup and milk until it reaches a lusciously thick and creamy consistency. Once you achieve the desired texture, you’ll be greeted with a heavenly combination of flavors that perfectly complement the rich coffee.
  • If you want to get creative, try adding other flavors to the cold brew or golden foam. Cinnamon, chocolate, and caramel are all great options that pair well with the nutty flavor of the olive oil.
  • Drink the cold brew relatively quickly, as the olive oil can separate if it gets too cold. If you do notice some separation, just give it a quick stir before drinking.
  • Serve with a side of sweet treats. Pair your Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew with a delightful sweet treat, such as a cinnamon roll, chocolate biscotti, or a caramel-filled pastry. The combination of the rich coffee and the indulgent treat will create a truly satisfying and decadent experience.
