How to make the perfect cold brew

Cold brew is one of the most delicious ways to drink coffee. It’s a great way of batch brewing a coffee and having it ready in the fridge to use when you fancy that caffeine hit, but without the heat.

Set your stopwatch for a 24-hour countdown and you’ll be generously rewarded—a concentrated brew, with plenty with flavour.

 

Step 1
Place the filter in your cold brewer of choice, we currently use the Oxo cold brewer, as we find the metal filter so easy to clean.

Step 2
Weigh out 500g of coffee

Step 3
Grind the coffee coarsely, about the same as a French press.

Step 4
Add your coffee to the brewer, then give it a few shakes to level the bed.

Step 5
Pour your water (1.5L) over the grounds—gradually and carefully—in a series of concentric circles.

Step 6
Make sure that all the grounds are submerged, use a spoon to mix everything together.

Step 7
Let steep for 24 hours.

Step 8
Carefully position the cold brewer over your carafe and release the valve. Often, you have a couple of seconds before the flow of coffee begins. It will take about 15mins to finish dripping.

Step 9
We recommend 25ml of the cold brew concentrate to 225ml of milk (oat, coconut, soy, dairy etc) or iced water.

Step 10
Enjoy!
