Cold Brew

What is Cold Brew?

Cold brew involves using cold water to brew ice coffee. The coffee beans are soaked in cold water and brewed for several hours. It results in a smooth, less acidic and highly caffeinated cup of coffee.

 

 

WHY COLD BREW?
Cold Brew is a great way of stocking up on ice coffee during the summer. You can make a large batch and keep in the fridge for a week. It differs to regular ice coffee as it brings out the chocolate and caramel notes of coffee. It goes great
with milk and syrup or just as it is!


WHAT YOU WILL NEED
100g medium ground beans • 1000ml cold water • Scale Dripper of your choice (Eg Hario V60, Chemex etc.) Paper filter • Jug • Cup • Fridge
TIPS
Cold brew is forgiving when it comes to brewing time. Don’t worry too much about it. If you miss by a couple of hours, it is okay! If your cold brew is too strong, you can always dilute it with extra water at the end!

 

 

 

 

 Steps

 

STEP 1
Place 100g of medium ground beans into
your container.

 

STEP 2
Pour in 1000ml of
filtered cold water
into your container.

 

STEP 3
Mix with a chopstick
or any long item you
have. This will help
all the beans soak
into the water for
greater extraction.

 

 

STEP 4
Place a lid onto of your container and then put in the fridge for 8 hours. You can make this before you sleep
and it should be ready when you wake up!

 

STEP 5
After 8 hours, mix
one more time. This
is important as it will
help with filtering the
cold brew.

 

STEP 6
Using any paper
filter you have, slowly
filter the coffee into
another container.

 

STEP 7
Taste the cold brew as it is. If it is too strong, you can dilute it with some water or add milk.

 

STEP 8
Enjoy!
Cold brew is perfect
to enjoy on a hot
summer day! It’s very convenient to have as you can keep it in the fridge for a week.
