September 29th is National Coffee Day today!  YESSSS it is!  They make such a day for me, I’m convinced of it.  To say I love coffee may be an understatement and it’s hard to believe that anyone could survive on its deliciousness more than me.  BUT,  I think my husband might like it almost more than I do!

We like experimenting with different types of coffees and adding to our coffee bar collection.  This past May we went to the Indy Cup 2018 – a Midwest coffee festival. I also post a lot about coffee.  The best of the best, Starbucks keto and low-carb options, DIY coffee drinks at home, etc. We drink our cold brew with a splash of heavy whipping cream to make it keto.  I also like to add a little stevia to give it some sweetness.  Just remember, cold brew is naturally slightly sweeter than regular coffee and has more caffeine!  In honor of National Coffee Day, I’m sharing with you our tried and true, easy, do-it-yourself recipe for cold brew success!
