This homemade, do-it-yourself coffee soda is so simple to make and a really fun way to enjoy your coffee.
Last weekend I was having lunch with my friend CC and she ordered a bottle of coffee soda, which she generously let me sample. She commented that we could probably recreate it at home, which is what I ended up doing.
I’ve made this several times now, with different coffee variations. I did it with espresso shots using my Nespresso machine, concentrated cold brew and also regular strong brewed coffee. If you’re a coffee drinker, it’s definitely worth trying out.
For the regular strong brewed version, I used Dark French Fair Trade beans from Capricorn Coffees in San Francisco, also a gift from CC. The beans are so gorgeous, I just had to share a photo.
Morning espresso, afternoon cold brew, evening tea, and now coffee soda. This probably explains why I’ve had so much energy this summer…
I can’t believe it’s already August. There are still so many summery things I want to do. I always felt summer went by so fast as a kid, but it feels equally fast now as an adult. One thing I won’t miss though, are all these summer break-ups. I know I shouldn’t care about celebrities who I don’t even know, but I can’t help it. All these divorce announcements and nanny scandals are really bumming me out.
Luckily, I’m attending a wedding this weekend. Random tidbit, did you know that if you send a wedding invitation to the White House, you actually get a response back? Our friends did it and they got a lovely congratulatory note on their upcoming wedding, with signatures from both the President and the First Lady. I wish I had known to do that for my wedding.
