How to make Decaf Cold Brew Floats

Step 1: Make easy Savorista Cold Brew

I always have Savorista cold brew brewing in my fridge. It's incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious with ice cream! Check out our recipe for how to make cold brew using a French press.

We love pairing vanilla ice cream with our chocolatey roasts like, Colombian Adventure, Ethiopian Ceremony, or Barely Buzzed! Make it decaf so you can fall asleep after fireworks or try a half caf version if you want to keep the party going!

Step 2: Build your float

Grab a glass and add your freshly made cold brew coffee. You can add a splash of club soda to add a bit of fizz, and top with one or two scoops of ice cream! 

You can keep it classic with vanilla ice cream or mix it up with chocolate! Go ahead and add toppings like caramel, chocolate sauce, or whipped cream. It's your holiday, make it how you like it - we're just here for inspiration.


Here's the full recipe:

Cold Brew Coffee

  • Weigh or measure your coffee. Weigh out 1 gram of coffee for every 7 grams of water.  For an 8 cup French Press, measure out ⅔ cup of coffee and 3 cups of room temperature filtered water. 
  • Grind on a coarse setting to make sure your coffee isn't too fine for your filter. 
  • Pour the coffee grounds into the french press and add the water. Stir to make sure all of the grounds are wet. 
  • Steep for 12-14 hours. This is where the magic happens and your perfect cup of cold brew is on its way!
  • Plunge, pour, and enjoy!

Cold Brew Coffee Float

  • Add 6oz of cold brew coffee to your glass.
  • Top with a splash of club soda to add some fizz (optional).
  • Add in one or two scoops of your favorite ice cream.
  • Enjoy!
