The Best At-Home Cold Brew Coffee
Smooth, refreshing and incredibly delicious, cold brew coffee is an excellent way to enjoy your coffee any time of the year. It's easy to make in batches and use throughout the entire week or next time you have a party. This recipe is for a larger batch brew, but you can easily scale it down by sticking to a 1:11 ratio (1 gram of coffee to 11 grams of water)
Servings: 16 8 oz servings
- 12 oz coffee ground coarsely
- 1 gallon water filtered
Coarsely grind coffee. Because you steep the coffee grounds for such an extended period of time, you want your coffee grounds to be ground fairly coarse so the coffee does not get over-extracted.
Combine coffee and water. Add filtered water to cold brew maker until just below the rim of the jar (if you are using less coffee reduce the water amount proportionally). Add coffee to center filter.
Stir coffee. The coffee will float to the top. Wait 1 minute and use spoon or other stirrer to stir inside the filter to help settle the coffee grounds.
Allow coffee to steep. Wait between 12-24 hours for the coffee to steep.
Remove coffee. Slowly remove the filter from the cold brew maker and allow coffee to drain from the filter.
Enjoy! Store the finished cold brew in the fridge and enjoy over the next week. The cold brew coffee can be drunk straight or diluted with water or milk to taste.
During steeping the coffee can be at room temperature. If stored in the fridge though, you may need to steep the coffee a bit longer.
If using the Honour Cold Brew maker, be sure to keep the lid loose after seeping to allow for proper pouring.
