Where to find trendy cold foam in coffee, tea and alcoholic drinks around Baton Rouge

Skip the whipped cream and pile on the cold foam, a trendy drink enhancement that adds a creamy, customizable layer to coffees and other icy drinks.

Like pulling a sip through a foamy cloud, cold foam has made its way onto coffee menus almost everywhere. However, Rêve Coffee Lab general manager Eric Schoonmaker says the trendy topper isn’t entirely new. 

“Cold foam has always been around, just not too many people were doing much with it,” Schoonmaker says. “At Rêve, we started doing cold foam around November last year. It was most likely a Starbucks drink that started the trend, but they didn’t create cold foam.”

Cold foam at Rêve is made using equal parts syrup and heavy cream, Schoonmaker shares. The mixture is frothed creating an airy, bubbly layer of foam that perches on iced drinks. Though it can be made with milk alternatives, Schoonmaker says using something other than heavy cream might yield a different consistency that is less fluffy and more likely to mix into the drink. 

At Rêve, 20% to 25% of iced drinks are ordered with cold foam, according to Schoonmaker. And, three out of four of the shop’s spring seasonal drinks featured it, which he says were the most frequently ordered among the group. He says the foam enhances the drink in two ways. 

“It makes the drink visually appetizing and creates a fun tasting experience,” he says. “Ultimately though, I think it makes the drink look prettier. I’ve just recently created a drink with a chai cold foam that really elevates the tasting experience.” 

Reve is just one of the local shops dabbling in this hot cold beverage trend. Check out our list of coffee and tea spots that are frothing up their own cold foams. Just watch out for those cold foam mustaches.
