  • Large Mason jar or French press

Directions

Cold Brew

4 Steps

  • Step 1

    Coarsely grind 1/3 cup coffee beans, big enough to be filtered by the French press but small enough to infuse properly.

  • Step 2

    Place in bottom of French press or Mason jar, pour cold filtered water over the grounds and cover. Place in fridge overnight.

  • Step 3

    If using the French press, press down on the coffee plunger or if using a Mason jar, pour coffee through whatever type of filter you have on hand (coffee filter, cheese cloth, etc.).

  • Step 4

    My preferred method of drinking cold brew is to fill a cocktail shaker with ice; pour cold brew, half and half cream and simple syrup over ice and shake aggressively for 30 seconds. Pour into a glass, coffee will be frothy, and top with a dusting of cocoa powder.
