Cold Brew Coffee

Cold Brew Coffee

For those of us that love the flavor of coffee, but can’t handle the acidity, Cold-brewed coffee may be the answer. Cold-brewed coffee is approximately 67% less acidic than coffee brewed by conventional hot-brew methods.

Cold-brew coffee doesn’t need any fancy equipment and you can make as large of a batch as you want. It keeps in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.Plus, it has a smoother taste!

What you will need:

  • 1 cup coffee grounds (organic is ideal)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 large jar with lid
  • coffee filter
  • mesh strainer

Directions:

1. Pour coffee grounds into the jar.

2. Add water. Stir with a wooden spoon to make sure all the coffee grounds get wet and nothing sticks to the side.

3. Cover jar and let it sit at room temperature for 12 hours.

4. Now you will need to strain the coffee. Place your coffee filter on your strainer. Place your strainer on a bowl. Pour coffee into the strainer. This may take some time to strain the coffee.

That is your coffee “concentrate.”

To make a cup of coffee, mix the coffee  50/50 with water.  Pour over a glass of ice and you have the perfect cup of cold-brew coffee!

If you prefer to add milk or cream to your coffee, you will not need to dilute it with as much water. Play around with it depending on your taste. Enjoy!
