Cold Brew

Cold coffee has been good since 2005

Stuff you need

  • Cold brew bag (we use Madesco) or a French Press
  • Pitcher (if using a French Press you will not need a cold brew bag or a pitcher)
  • Water
  • Coffee (medium fine)
  • Measuring cup (1 cup)

How to brew it

Pre-brew

  • Measure 1 cup of coffee per 4 cups of water (4:1 ratio water to coffee)
  • Grind coffee, add to cold brew bag & place bag in pitcher (medium-fine)
  • 1 cup of coffee + 4 cups of water makes 32 oz
  • 2 cups of coffee + 8 cups of water makes 64oz

Brewing

  • Pour water slowly into cold brew bag
  • Stir grounds to evenly saturate
  • Pour at least half of the water though the cold brew bag
  • Pull drawstrings tight & tie around top of bag
  • Add rest of water to pitcher & place lid on
  • Place pitcher in fridge for 24 hours
  • After 24 hours, pull out coffee bag & place in strainer over a bowl to drain for 5-10 minutes
  • Add the drained amount back into the pitcher of cold brew

Tips

  • Water is super important, so we recommend using purified water
  • If you brew your cold brew too strong, you can always dilute it to taste by using ice or water
  • Fresh coffee beans do make a difference. Here’s one of our favorites for cold brew
