DIY Coffee Syrup

One of my favorite coffee shops
is called Barista.

It's located in Portland,
so when Micah and I
take a trip out west to visit family,
we try to make a trip
at least once (or twice).

One of the best things about Barista
is that they make there own
Vanilla Bean Coffee Syrup.

It truly is amazing.

So I decided to replicate it!

 Here is what you need...

 2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 vanilla beans

First, you'll want to get all those yummy,
fragrant vanilla bean seeds out of their pod.
So split the bean down the center
and scrape the seeds out.

Next, bring the water, sugar, and vanilla bean seeds
to a boil on the stove top, stirring vigorously.

Once the sugar is nice and dissolved to form a syrup,
let it cool for a few minutes.

Pour the syrup in a bottle
and when the liquid is completely cooled,
seal the lid with a pour spout.
