How To Make Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

  1. Combine the coffee and cold water in a large Mason jar, bowl, or vessel of some sort with a built-in filter (such as a French press or similar item for brewing). Stir with a spoon until all the coffee grounds have been saturated with water.
  2. Cover the container with a lid and let it sit on the counter at room temperature to steep for 12 to 24 hours. The longer the cold brew coffee steeps, the stronger the flavor.
  3. If you’ve infused the coffee in a bowl or jar, strain the cold brew coffee concentrate through a fine-mesh sieve, metal coffee filter, or fine cheesecloth into a bowl. If you’ve infused the coffee in a vessel with a built-in filter, deploy the plunger to press the grounds down or follow the manufacturer’s instructions for filtering.
  4. Pour the strained cold brew coffee concentrate into a container with a lid. You should have 2 1/2 to 3 cups. Cover the container and stash it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  5. To serve the cold brew coffee, dilute the concentrate with ice and water, milk, or half-and-half to taste. (The amount of liquid needed for dilution is up to your discretion. It depends on the type of coffee used and how strong you fancy your coffee. A good place to start is 1 part cold brew coffee concentrate to 1 part water. Taste and tweak if need be.) Use within 1 week.
