Coldbrew is one of those things that sounds fancy and complicated and as though it will cost a fancy penny and a complicated work day.
In cold brew reality you can make incredible coffee flavors your mouth has never known with any container and something that can hold tiny coffee granules (cheesecloth, coffee filter, really fine laced leggings).
Why is Cold Brew so Superior?
- More Caffeine: Cold Brew has more caffeine inside it since you don’t burn out any of that delicious energy as you aren’t using hot water.
- Caffeine/Flavor Regulation: If you’re looking to detox on caffeine or even just regulate the amount this is the way to go. On days you need less coffee you just pour less into your bottle/liquid container. The amount is easily increased or decreased based on your mouth/body desires.
- The Flavor: Since you don’t burn out any of the flavor you get the depth and brightness that lies in your coffee beans. I’m tasting a beginning, middle and end of coffee notes with each moment of liquid that comes inside you.
- Cold Undiluted Coffee: At wretched coffee shops that need to be cast into the fires of Mount Doom they just add ice to regular brewed coffee. That is just flavored water…okay all liquid is but they do it wrong.
Ingredients for Single Life Cold Brew Coffee: (Makes Two Cups)
1 and 3/4 Cup of Finely Ground Coffee (or the size of breadcrumbs, but there’s a debate going for which grindis best)
Quality of coffee matters since you can really taste it. What you smell you’ll taste.
3 and 1/2 Cups of Filtered Cold Water (quality matters)
A French press or Liquid Container
Family Size Cold Brew
Galon Sized Jar or Liquid Holder
3 Cups Finely Ground Coffee
A Gallon of Water Minus 3 Cups of Coffee Grounds
Method One: The French Press
This will be the easiest method since you simply grind, add water, let it sit and then press.
- Put about a cup of coffee into a grinder (spice grinder or coffee grinder works) and work in two to three batches.
- Grind up 1.75 cups of coffee on a very fine ground (for the fullest extraction of flavor).
- Put the grinds at the bottom of your French press.
- Pour 3.5 cups cold water (or room temp) into your French Press/ fill to the brim.
- Stir the water and grinds then cover the press with the handle fully up.
- Let sit erect for 12 hours and up to 24 hours.
- After 12 hours press all the way down and pour the coffee into a container then store in the fridge and make a few coffee ice cubes for hangover smoothies/for future use.
Method Two: Random Container and Cheesecloth/Coffee Filter
- Follow the first two steps from above.
- Put the grinds into a container, preferably with a pour spout.
- Pour 3.5 cups of cold or room temperature water into container.
- Stir the water and the grinds together or put the lid on and shake.
- Let sit for 12 to 24 hours and go do life things.
- After 12 hours have passed strain through a cheesecloth or coffee filter and store.
Method Three: Family Sized
- Take 3 cups of finely ground coffee and put into the bottom of a gallon sized vessel (preferably with a spigot).
- Pour cold or room temperature water into the grounds.
- Swirl the coffee and water together.
- Let sit for 12-24 hours and filter out in batches.
