Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You will need:

  • Coarsely ground coffee: Choose a high-quality coffee blend or single-origin beans for the best flavour.

  • Filtered water: Use cold, filtered water to ensure a clean and pure taste.

  • Cold brew vessel: A mason jar, cafetiere, or dedicated cold brew coffee maker works well.

  • Fine-mesh sieve or coffee filter: This will be used to strain the coffee grounds.

Step 2: Measure the Coffee and Water

For a standard ratio, use 1 part coffee to 4 parts water. For example, if you have 1 cup of coffee grounds, you’ll need 4 cups of water. Adjust the ratio according to your taste preferences.

Step 3: Combine Coffee and Water

Add the coarsely ground coffee to your cold brew vessel. Then slowly pour the filtered water over the coffee grounds, ensuring all the grounds are fully saturated. Stir gently to make sure all the coffee grounds are evenly dispersed in the water.

Step 4: Steep the Coffee

Place the lid or cover on the cold brew vessel and let the coffee steep at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. The longer it steeps, the stronger the flavour will be. You can experiment with steeping times to find your preferred strength.

Step 5: Strain the Coffee

After the steeping time, place a fine-mesh sieve or coffee filter over a separate container or pitcher. Slowly pour the cold brew mixture through the sieve/filter to separate the liquid from the coffee grounds. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your sieve or filter.

Step 6: Dilute and Serve

Cold brew concentrate is typically stronger than regular coffee, so you may want to dilute it before serving. Mix 1 part cold brew concentrate with 1-2 parts water, depending on your taste preferences. Serve the cold brew coffee over ice and enjoy! You can also add milk, cream, or sweeteners as desired.

Step 7: Storage

Store the remaining cold brew coffee in a sealed container in the fridge. It can stay fresh for up to a week, allowing you to enjoy multiple servings.

Now you’re ready to savour the smooth, refreshing taste of homemade cold brew coffee. Experiment with brewing times, coffee-to-water ratios, and even adding flavourings like cinnamon or vanilla for a personalized touch. Cheers to a delightful and invigorating cold brew experience!
