Easy Cold Brew Coffee Instructions
Measure your coffee beans and water
Mix your coffee grounds and water in a container (like a Mason jar) or French press
Leave in a cool, dark place for 12-24 hours. A good starting place is 16 hours, then you can adjust from there to get a strength that suits your tastes
If you are using a French press, push the plunger and pour your cold brew into a clean container. Or, if you have used a jar, strain the brew through a coffee filter into a clean container.
Store your perfect cold brew in the fridge to enjoy whenever you want
Be prepared to have fun and a little flexibility when making cold brew coffee as it may take a couple of tries to get it exactly how you want it. If it’s not strong enough, try steeping for a few more hours or adding more grounds. If it’s a bit bitter, then try steeping for less time or using fewer grounds.
However, after you’ve tried once or twice, you’ll be brewing a week’s worth of delicious cold brew coffee for a fraction of the price of the cold brew you can buy at a café. Plus, it will exactly match your preferences.
