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.
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.
Weigh out 500g of coffee
Grind the coffee coarsely, about the same as a French press.
Add your coffee to the brewer, then give it a few shakes to level the bed.
Pour your water (1.5L) over the grounds—gradually and carefully—in a series of concentric circles.
Make sure that all the grounds are submerged, use a spoon to mix everything together.
Let steep for 24 hours.
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.
We recommend 25ml of the cold brew concentrate to 225ml of milk (oat, coconut, soy, dairy etc) or iced water.
