This summer, I’ve been making cold brew coffee concentrate every few days.
I’ve tried a few different kinds of beans, but when I was in Cincinnati for a girls trip last month, I picked up some coffee from Coffee Emporium. I got the Guatemala blend, it’s been my favorite so far!
Here is what you’ll need to make your own concentrate:
- 1 cup of beans (choose your favorite coffee), ground to a sand-like consistency
- 3 cups of filtered water
- 32 oz mason jar with a lid (or some other container; I recommend glass)
- fine strainer, cheesecloth, or mesh nut-milk bag
- another container to catch the concentrate after straining
Steps to brew the concentrate:
- Grind coffee beans if they are not already ground. (The fresher the grind, the better the coffee will be!)
- Put ground coffee into the mason jar and cover with water.
- Let sit for at least 18 hours. I prefer 22-24 hours.
- Strain concentrate into another container using a fine strainer, cheesecloth, or a mesh nut-milk bag.
To make a cup of cold brew coffee, I like to use:
- 2 parts concentrate
- 1 part filtered water
- 1 part my all-time favorite creamer (It’s dairy and sugar free!)
