cold brew coffee recipe

I had this assumption that cold brew coffee was difficult to make. That it must be time consuming and involve some precise process that would be easy to mess up. Wrong on all accounts.

Start with your favorite coarse ground coffee, I strongly suggest organic and some filtered water. You'll want a 2:1 ratio of water to coffee. Other supplies you'll need: a cheese cloth or nut milk bag, and two glass jar/container large enough for the coffee concoction.

I usually make my cold brew with 1 cup of coffee and 2 cups of water. Measure out the coffee and add it to the water. I don't have a funnel, so I pour the coffee on to a towel and use that to funnel it into the jar with pre-measured water.
Shake to combine. And then refrigerate for 12-24 hours (I typically leave it for 24 hours). Strain the coffee through the cheese cloth or nut milk bag into a clean jar. The cold brew will keep in an airtight glass jar for up to a week.
When you enjoy this cold brew coffee, keep in mind that it is more like a concentrate. So, you want to add water to achieve your desired taste. My preference is about 1.5:1 concentrate to water. You can serve it chilled, over ice, or you can heat it up.

cold brew coffee concentrate

1 cup organic coffee (I recommend any of Allegro's organic blends from Whole Foods)
2 cups filtered water

2 glass jars - one for brewing and one for storage
cheese cloth or nut milk bag

Measure water and put in to a glass jar. Measure out coffee and funnel into jar with water. Shake to combine. Refrigerate for 12-24 hours.

Remove from refrigerator, strain coffee mixture through cheese cloth/nut milk bag. Store coffee concentrate in an airtight glass container for up to a week.

To serve, combine coffee concentrate with water to taste. Serve chilled or heat. Add cream, milk, or sugar if desired.
