This cold brew coffee recipe is SO easy to make, and it removes much of the acid and bitterness of traditional coffee.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coarsely-ground coffee beans
  • 4 cups cold water

Instructions

  1. Add ground coffee and cold water together in a large bowl. Stir briefly to combine. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 12 hours (or up to 24 hours).
  2. Then remove the bowl, and place a strainer covered with a cheesecloth in a second bowl. Pour the coffee (and ground) over the strainer, and wait a minute or two until the liquid has filtered through the strainer. Discard the grounds and remove the strainer.
  3. Serve the coffee over iced, stirring in water to dilute the coffee at a 1:2 or 1:1 concentrate/water ratio.  (Or whatever strength you prefer.  I recommend just adding the water to taste.) Refrigerate the remaining coffee concentrate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
