Makes 6 Waffles
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 cup Califia Farms Pure Black Cold Brew Coffee Blonde Roast
  • 1 cup Califia Farms Original Oat Beverage
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa or cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder, dissolvable
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted


  • Fresh berries of your choice
  • Pure maple syrup, for drizzle


  1. Preheat the waffle maker to desired setting (if applicable) ––medium-high heat works great!
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cacao powder, baking powder, baking soda, espresso, and sea salt. Create a well in the middle.
  3. Add the Califia Farms Cold Brew Coffee Blonde Roast, Original Oat Beverage, coconut oil, vanilla, and Agave into the well of the dry ingredients and stir together well (using a rubber spatula) until fully incorporated and batter looks smooth. Now, let the batter sit for 2-3 minutes while it slightly thickens and rises, which means that the ingredients have activated. NOTE: the batter should be pourable but not 'runny' at all. It should slightly stick when whisk is lifted up, as a test.
  4. Next, spoon batter into your waffle maker (1/2 cup approximately) and cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions. 
  5. Once each waffle completes, add to a baking sheet and place them in the oven on the lowest setting (to keep them warm). Repeat until all waffles are made.
  6. To serve–stack waffles (whole or cut) and top with fresh berries and drizzled maple syrup, if desired.
