How to Make Kombucha Coffee
We're familiar with viral coffee trends, and the latest one we're taking a look at is Kombucha Coffee. Kombucha is a type of fermented tea that has been around for thousands of years. However, it's gained popularity in the United States in the past few years, so much so that you can find it in grocery stores with ease and variety now. While the world tends to be divided between coffee drinkers and tea drinkers, Kombucha Coffee combines the two together.
Typically, kombucha is made with a brewed tea, but someone had the genius idea of making it with brewed coffee instead. Follow the recipe below and make your own!
Kombucha Coffee Recipe
- 4 cups freshly brewed Dark Roast Coffee
