Brew Something Ice Cold

June 19, 2017

Just in time for warmer weather comes the perfect blend for cold brewed coffee! Rich with a malty flavor and hints of milk chocolate this dark roast blend is specifically designed for cold brewing. Follow this recipe from our friends at Just Coffee Cooperative for best results.

What you'll need

  • A large container for the water and coffee grounds
  • Filtered water (not distilled, not tap water)
  • A large fine-mesh strainer. We recommend a chinois style strainer
  • A 12-oz bag of Just Coffee Cold Brew Blend

Directions

You can cold-brew coffee at home without a Toddy or any other specialized equipment. Stir 7.5 cups of the same filtered water you’d use for brewing coffee hot into 12 ounces of coarsely-ground coffee, making sure to evenly saturate the coffee, then let sit at room temperature for 12 hours. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer (you could even use a French press up to this step) and refrigerate until completely chilled. Again, this produces a very concentrated coffee, which can be diluted with filtered water or milk according to your taste preferences; 1:1 is a good place to start. The concentrate’s good, kept refrigerated, for about 2 weeks. Prepped ahead, you'll always have a cold brew on hand when you walk out the door into the summer heat!
