How to Make Cold Brew Coffee

Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Cold brew is the most simple and straightforward methods for coffee. You do not need a special cold brew maker. Any empty jar will suffice and a mesh or filtered device:

  1. Grind the Coffee Beans:
    • Coarsely grind your coffee beans. Aim for a texture similar to coarse sea salt.
  2. Combine Coffee and Water:
    • In a large jar or pitcher, combine the ground coffee with cold water.
  3. Steep the Mixture:
    • Cover the jar or pitcher and let it steep in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. The longer the steeping time, the stronger the flavor.
  4. Strain and Serve:
    • Strain the coffee through a fine-mesh sieve, coffee filter, or cheesecloth to remove the grounds. Serve the cold brew over ice, and dilute with water or milk if desired.

Cold Brew Ratio: The cold brew ratio we often use is 1:12 upward to 1:15. This depends on roast type and flavour profile we are looking for. So for a litre use roughly 80-65g.

Enjoy your smooth and refreshing cold brew coffee!
