Cold Brew

Sweet, convenient, and perfect for summer months. 

The warmer months are approaching for many of us, so the idea of sipping on a glass of cold brew sounds better by the day. Many people end up making a watery and bitter iced coffee, but a cold brew delivers a smooth, balanced cup every time. 


For anyone new to the coffee world, yes cold brew and iced coffee are different. Iced coffee is a regular brewed coffee with added ice. Cold brew is a 12-24 hour process of coffee grounds being steeped in water resulting in a totally different cup. We recommend steeping all the way to the 24 hour mark, getting the most from the extraction process without over extracting.

Cold brew is a slow infusion that extracts all the flavor and caffeine, eliminating what may make coffee bitter or sour. Cold brew is known for its smooth, sweeter tasting properties as well as its lower acidity and slower release of caffeine. For these reasons, it has gained lots of popularity in the more recent years.


Making cold brew may be easier than you think! It doesn’t require any advanced skills or equipment. You probably already have everything you need right in your kitchen.


What you’ll need:
-1 Cup of coarse ground coffee
-4 Cups of filtered water
-1 Large container
-1 Paper coffee filter
-1 Strainer


Steps:
1.Combine the coffee grounds and water in a large glass container
2.Steep for 24 hours in the refrigerator
3.Strain the concentrate to remove the large grounds
4.Filter the remaining concentrate over the paper filter to further remove any finer grounds
5.Serve immediate or store in refrigerator for later enjoyment


After making your cold brew concentrate, you can adjust it to your liking by adding water, ice, or milk. Having a batch stored in the refrigerator for the week will save you time and provide that desired boost any time of day.


Soon we will all be summer sipping together. We hope you enjoy the taste and benefits of cold brew as much as we do.
