Make a delicious cup of frothy coffee the old fashioned way with this simple mason jar coffee creamer.
I may be compensated for some items linked in this post at no extra cost to you.
I don’t remember exactly when I developed a liking for all things old fashioned. But I think it was around fifth grade when I would stealthily play Oregon Trail in computer class while Sister Anna Mary wasn’t watching. Very influential times.
Now, maybe you have your own Oregon Trail story of first beginning to dream about the days of old – or maybe you just like coffee. Either way, I will share this old fashioned method of ‘frothing’ cream that brings me joy & hopefully it will you too!
Whole beans are fresher, more fragrant, and have a richer taste. You just can’t beat the smell of freshly ground coffee in the morning. Plus, word on the street is that whole bean coffee is harvested from the best crop. Who knows. But once you make the switch, it’s hard to go back.
I like a more coarse ground for the percolator, and use my NutriBullet to grind. Just add the beans, pulse a few seconds, and done.
P.S. this NutriBullet is SO OLD. Still works like a champ tho, definitely a kitchen appliance I’ll keep forever.
I first started using a percolator when we moved to the farm. I found an old enamel coated one in the barn that was in good shape, so I cleaned it up and put it to use. But I learned that old enamelware can potentially leach quite a large amount of toxins – so since I drink coffee daily, I figured I better invest in something safer.
This cute stainless perc is from Amazon and is a pretty addition to my kitchen.
Using a percolator is really simple, but I have an entire post that goes into depth if you want to get it down to a science.
Finally – the creamer! Now, if you really want to vibe old fashioned – just spoon a dollop of fresh cream into a cup of coffee with some sugar. Not bad at all.
But this mason jar method is just a little extra backwoods fancy and delicious.
Add 1 3/4 cup cream to a pint jar
Add 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
Optional: add ground cinnamon & nutmeg or 1-2 drops of vitality oil
Put a lid on the jar and shake it really well for 30 seconds or so, the creamer will be really frothy and bubbly.
Pour over a hot cup of coffee & enjoy (sprinkled with some cinnamon on the right)
