Cold Brewing Organic Coffee
Whole Bean Coffee | Brewing Container | Filter | Large Spoon | Cold Water | Timer | Scale
Choose a container - something that will hold all of your water and coffee grounds.
Measure: Use scale to weigh coffee according to the chart. We always recommend weighing though you can use measurements if no scale is available. If it seems like a lot of coffee it is. But remember, you’re making a concentrate.
Grind: Grind coffee fresh to a coarse consistency. If using pre-ground drip coffee, use a shorter steep time as listed in the chart.
Mix: Add ground coffee and water to the vessel and give it a stir with a spoon so all grounds are saturated.
Steep: Let container sit in the refrigerator for designated time.
Filter: Use filter of choice. Options include cheese cloth, coffee filter, fine mesh strainer or our favorite- mesh bag, to filter out grounds. If making a small batch filter by making in French press. Cold brew concentrate will last 7-10 days in the refrigerator.
Finish: You now have a delicious cold brew concentrate! Classic Cold Brew recipe is adding cold water at a 1:1 ratio and pouring over a few ice cubes. You can also use the concentrate as a base for fun coffee drinks and cocktails.
This brew method uses a long, cold steep time to extract a smooth concentrate. The concentrate is good for 10 days. Sweet Love Blend is our favorite for this method!
