It’s no surprise that cold brew is a hot drink this summer. It’s robust flavor and smooth taste have hordes of regular iced coffee drinkers jumping on the bandwagon. There is a lot of mystery around how to actually make cold brew coffee. A lot of people think it takes fancy – and expensive – equipment to brew a coveted cup of cold brew. (After all, why else would it cost upwards of $5 a cup?) We have an easy solution for you to make cold-brew coffee at home, with common kitchen items.
It may be surprising that you can make cold brew coffee at home using only things found in your kitchen. No special brewing equipment required.
In fact, you only need three items: A large jar (or pitcher), a strainer & a coffee filter.
Step 1: Pour 2.5 oz of ground coffee into the jar.
Step 2: Pour 2 quarts of water on the coffee grounds.
Step 3: Let the mixture sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
Step 4: Place a coffee filter inside a mesh strainer and strain the coffee into another container to remove all the grounds.
Step 5: Pour over ice.
Step 6: Stir, sip, repeat.
