Expensive to buy but so easy to make at home. Two ingredients will take your coffee drinking to the next level.
coarse/medium ground coffee beans
Grind coffee beans to a coarse or medium size.
Add coffee beans to large jar or container.
Add water to jar and mix together.
Keep in refrigerator overnight. The longer the better!
Strain using fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth.
Enjoy over ice. Add your favorite flavoring or creamer to make it your own!
No need to go out and purchase some fancy container. Any jar with a lid will work. I use a quart size mason jar. A french press coffee maker would work to brew and strain the coffee beans. Double duty!
I have made cold brew at home using medium roast coffee beans as well as medium-dark roasted beans. I have used flavored and unflavored beans. It has all come out well. Although I have not attempted to make it with store bought coffee grounds, I am sure that it will work. Lately, I have just been buying whole beans and grinding them at home. I find that it tastes better and it saves on the cost of buying coffee.
Use filtered water to make your cold brew. I am not a fan of unfiltered tap water. The taste really throws me off so I don’t want that taste in the background of my delicious coffee drink.
