Taiwanese Sea Salt Coffee


We used to frequent 85C bakery often but it wasn’t for their bread, it was for the Sea Salt Coffee!

Taiwanese sea salt coffee is different than ‘Starbucks’ sea salt coffee in that it is slightly sweetened brewed coffee topped with a layer of thick salted cream.  It’s a perfect mix of sweet and salty!

However, 85C coffee is pre-sweetened so there is no low-carb/keto option available which is why I decided to start making it at home. 

It’s great because the cream will actually keep in the refrigerator for a few days so you can make it once and have it over and over during the week. 

You also can enjoy this drink hot or cold, so it’s a great choice regardless of what season you are in!

We recommend doubling up the ingredients and keeping the whipped cream mixture covered in the refrigerator so you can use it daily in your morning or afternoon coffee!

For this one, the only unique ingredient you will need is Swerve/Monkfruit, both can be purchased on Amazon or local specialty market.

Now, let’s get started!

Prepping Time 10M

Total Time 10M

Net Carb/Serv ~1g

Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 24oz Brewed Coffee
  • 1/2 Cup Whipping Cream

  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • 2 tsp Swerve/Monkfruit

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Brew coffee per your preferred method or use a siphon like we did here.  Note – I recommend making the coffee stronger if making iced coffee to avoid dilution.

3) If you would like hot coffee, pour brewed coffee into serving glass.  If you would like iced coffee, pour coffee into a serving glass and add ice cubes.  Add Swerve/Monkfruit and stir to dissolve.  You can adjust sweetness level to your liking (we recommend adjusting per tsp of sweetener).

4) In a medium mixing bowl, add whipping cream and sea salt.  Beat on high until thick and frothy but still runny.  About 2-3 minutes with a hand mixer.

5) Spoon whipped cream mixture on top of coffee.  Optional- sprinkle a little sea salt on top.
