If you have coffee, and time, then you can have cold brew coffee in the comfort of your own home. Here’s the very easy steps that me & Adam use at home to make cold brew! You will want to do this. Summer times means great cold coffee.
Step 1: Take your coffee beans (this lot was a Burundi from local roaster Cut Coffee, but we like most Pilot Roaster beans too!). Measure out 60gm, then grind on a coarse setting like you would when making a hot French Press brew.
Step 2: Pop your coffee grounds in a French Press, and pour 425ml in there.
Step 3: Using a spoon (or Aeropress paddle, like me!) gently stir the coffee grounds to make sure everything is saturated.
Step 4: Gently plunge the French Press filter down til it’s sitting just on the top of the water/grounds. Pop it in the fridge and leave it there for 12 hours!
Step 5: Don’t plunge the press! Instead, without jostling the grounds around too much, just pour the coffee out as-is – it’ll still be filtered through the mesh (although if you want things very clean, you can also pass it through a V60 filter or something too).
Step 6: This makes 2 servings of nice strong cold brew – take half and pop it into a glass and add the same amount of cold water as coffee to top it up, or pour it over a nice full glass of ice. Enjoy!!!
ENJOY!!!! You will really get to experience the variety of tasting notes in coffee with cold brewing, and I highly recommend trying it at least once. Your results may vary, but it’s definitely worth a try!
