For the Cold Brew

  • 1 1/2 cups cold brew concentrate (360 ml)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ice cubes, if desired

For the Pumpkin Cream

  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (30 ml)
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk (30 ml)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pinches ground turmeric, optional (for color)
  • pinch of pumpkin spice


  1. Cold Brew. Pour the cold brew, sugar, and vanilla into a 13-ounce glass and stir until the sugar has completely dissolved.  Add more sugar to taste, if desired.
  2. Pumpkin Cream. Pour all of the foam ingredients into a mixing bowl and froth them with a milk frother or a hand-held electric mixer on high speed.  If you're using a mixer, it will take about 2 minutes for the mixture to thicken to a whipped cream-like consistency.
  3. Assembly.  Pour the pumpkin cream over the back of a spoon so it floats on top of the coffee.  It may take a couple of tries to perfect this technique, so don't be discouraged if it doesn't work perfectly the first time.  Garnish the drink with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice and enjoy immediately.


  • Homemade Cold Brew: coarsely grind 6 ounces (170g) of medium-roast coffee beans (I used Starbucks' Pikes Place).  Add 6 cups (1.42 liters) cold water and stir until blended.  Seal in a mason jar or cold brew coffee maker and let it brew in the fridge for 20 hours.  Strain out the grounds in a paper towel-lined sieve and refrigerate the strained coffee for up to 7 days.
  • Make sure the milk and cream are thoroughly chilled when you whip them, or they won't thicken as much.
  • Try not to add extra pumpkin, sugar, or vanilla to the pumpkin cream.  The more add-ins it has, the less thick it will be.
