Do you ever wonder why the iced coffee at your favorite cafe tastes so much better than the one you make at home? Two words: Cold Brew.
Listen carefully: you do not get yummy iced coffee by pouring hot coffee over ice. Stop doing that.
By instead steeping the coffee in cold water for an extended period of time, you end up with a sweeter, gentler iced coffee flavor – without a hint of bitterness.
WATCH the video above to LEARN how with just a few minutes of prep the night before, you can wake up to a glass of silky smooth Cold Brew Iced Coffee in your very own home – and save that $3.50 you’ve been dishing out on a daily basis.
You can use any coffee grinder, but we like this conical hand grinder from Red Rooster Trading Company.
- 50 grams of coffee beans
- ½ gallon filtered water
- French Press (or other coffee strainer)
- ½ gallon ball jar (or other sizable container)
- Grind coffee beans on your coarsest setting (sometimes called “French Press”). Transfer to ball jar and fill with filtered water.
- Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning, strain in batches with your French Press. Any left over cold brew can be stored covered in the fridge for up to a week.
