Super Simple Cold Brew

  • Use any vessel you have at home!  We like to use a large mason jar or pitcher.

  • Then come visit us and pick up a bag of beans!  We have been brewing the Shamba lately, but both Heartbreaker and Momentum make great cold brews and they are available in bulk bags in case you need to make a big batch.

  • Grind the beans on a coarse setting (about 90% as coarse as your grinder will go or ask your barista to grind for you if you don’t have a grinder at home).

  • Put the ground coffee (the full 12oz bag) in your vessel and add approximately 96 oz of room temperature filtered water.

  • Stir until the grounds are saturated with water. At home, we usually use chopsticks or a wooden spoon.

  • Brew at room temp covered for 18 hours.

  • Strain through a filter. Since the coffee has been coarsely ground, you can use a tea strainer, colander, cheese cloth - basically anything you can find. 

  • You now have a delicious cold brew concentrate!

  • Cut with water (50/50 or to taste) then serve over ice and enjoy!
