How to Make Cold Brew Coffee
Written by: Allison Swan
Cold-brewing is a simple technique of steeping ground coffee in room temperature water, which makes a concentrated syrup with a smooth, mild flavor. It's worth the DIY treatment because you'll have full control over your coffee grounds, meaning you can make it with your favorite blend just how you like it. You can also make it as strong or weak as you please, or you can even make it decaf if you're cutting back on caffeine. And, it's much more cost-effective. Follow this easy recipe to make your own at home!
Combine 1- 1/2 heaping cups of ground coffee and 4 cups of room temperature water in a glass container.
Let it sit at room temperature for 12 hours.
Strain through a mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter.
This concentrated base will stay fresh in your fridge for about two weeks. To serve, combine 1/2 cup of the coffee base with equal parts water or milk and pour over ice. Enjoy!
