How to Make Cold-Brew Coffee

Cold-brew coffee. I'm on my second batch and its great. I mix 1/3 concentrate and then the rest with milk and a splash of cream and vanilla and a few tsp of sugar. Love it!


Ingredients:


  • 1 and 1/3 cups ground coffee
  • 4 cups water (cold or room temp)
  • Jar or pitcher
  • Fine mesh strainer (or cheese cloth, clean dish towel, anything to filter out the grounds)

Instructions:



  1. Place coffee in jar or pitcher and pour water over top.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Seal and let sit for at least 8 hours to overnight at room temperature.
  4. Pour mixture over a strainer in to a bowl. Clean jar.
  5. Strain a second time in to clean jar.
  6. Ta-da! Cold brew coffee concentrate. 4 cups of concentrate will make about 8 cups of iced coffee. This will last up to a week in the fridge.


To serve:

So, as I mentioned above, this is very concentrated coffee. You will need to dilute this to your liking. I drink it in a 2 to 1 ratio (1/3 coffee, 2/3 water) with some creamer. You could go more or less water depending on preference.
