No more watered down iced coffee.

Say hello to a smooth and non-bitter refreshment!

Unlike brewing coffee at a high temperature (which has high acidity), cold brew uses cold water to brew over an extended period of time. This is why more people are enjoying cold brew for their caffeine fix!

Instructions
  1. Use coarsely ground coffee beans. I use a med/dark roast. You can grind your own coffee beans to a coarse consistency using a coffee grinder or use one at the grocery store. Note: If you want to make more or less cold brew, just use the ratio of 1/4 cup coffee grounds for each 1 cup of water.
  2. Mix filtered water with coffee in a large Mason jar or a glass container. Place the lid on the jar and let steep overnight on the counter or for at least 12 hours. Tip: Use filtered water because it sets coffee up for success by having all lingering flavors filtered out.
  3. Strain mixture using a cheesecloth or coffee filter. Note: This could take a while. (It's worth the wait.)
  4. You can then pour some coffee in a glass with ice and a little water (if desired). The amount will depend on how strong you like your coffee. Add heavy cream if desired. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for a few days.

This coffee is so smooth!

In fact, I normally need some kind of sweetened creamer for my coffee. But, I can drink cold brew with just a little cream and no sweetener, because it’s not bitter at all! This was pretty easy to make, and I love that you can make a batch of brew and keep it in the fridge for a few days!

My coffee brewing, expert sidekick Emily shares the following helpful tips to make cold brew.

French Press Cold Brew

To brewIt’s pretty much the same process as using a French Press for hot coffee, except for the water temperature and brewing time.

  • Add 1 tbsp of coarsely ground coffee for every 6 oz. of cold, filtered water.
  • Stir them together gently. Place the top on, BUT don’t press it down.
  • Let it steep for about 12-14 hours.
  • Once the time has passed, simply press down the top and pour over ice.

Cold Brew Bottle Method

To brew: It’s pretty much the same exact process as the French Press with a slight modification.

  • Instead of stirring grounds, turn the bottle upside down and then upright a few times to move the grounds around inside the filter.
  • You can pour the cold brew right out of the bottle and the grounds will stay secure in the filter.

Iced Coffee Hyperchiller Method

The reason I really like this product (and why others may as well) is that it doesn’t really require you to change your coffee lifestyle!

To freeze the chillerFill the chambers with water and freeze for at least 6 hours (instructions are included in the packaging).

To brew: Simply brew your coffee as you normally would and pour the hot coffee into the Hyperchiller as soon as it’s finished brewing (so less acidity develops). You could even do a pour over coffee directly into the filter using a Melitta cone! After the coffee has been in for 30-60 seconds, pour back out over ice and enjoy!

It is a pretty small chamber (only 12 oz.) but I’ve refilled it two more times afterward to get 36 ounces of chilled coffee. Any more than that though probably won’t be as cold.

    Curious as to the “why” of a coarse ground coffee. Wouldn’t a fine ground give either stronger coffee or the need for less grounds? My frugal self thinks, “wow, a lot more coffee is needed for the cold brew method.” 🙂

      Hi there! Using a coarser grind will make the filtration process easier and your coffee taste far less bitter. Grinding too fine can heat up the grounds, which can negatively affect your cup. Hope that helps!

      Thanks so much for bringing that to our attention! The issue should be fixed now if you wanted to try again!

    Thank you for all of your keto recipes and ideas! I love cold brew! I mix 1/2lb ground coffee into 1 gallon of cold water. I have coffee for a week or more…it is nice not having to make it each day.
