Let’s make a quick Canadian Cottage Coffee!


Before we get to the full recipe below, here are a few notes about the ingredients you will need to make Canadian Cottage Coffee.

  • Canadian Northern Cream: This is a special blend of our small batch Canadian AppleJack, real cream, cocoa, vanilla, and salted caramel. Uniquely Canadian and truly delicious, this dreamy liqueur can be enjoyed in hot drinks or over ice all year round. *Be sure to refridgerate after opening.

  • Coffee: You can use your personal preference of coffee in this Canadian Cottage Coffee recipe, though keep in mind the bolder the flavour, the tastier the result. Our go-to coffee is a medium-roast from Fireroasted Coffee Co. in London, ON. This small business roasts beans that are FairTrade certified and sustainably sourced.

We also offer an epic Cream & Coffee Gift Box that comes with Canadian Northern Cream and Fireroasted Coffee, so all you'll have to do is mix the two to make the perfect cup.

  • Water: Just enough to brew a pot. You can also make this by the cup if you wish, or in a bowl if your coffee pot isn’t large enough to serve your company.
