It’s summertime, and that can mean only one thing for coffee lovers: cold brew! While cold brew coffee is all the rage at cafés lately, it’s surprisingly easy to make yourself at home with a few simple household items.


Ingredients

  • 64 oz. mason jar with a two-piece lid
  • 1 litre of cool water (use filtered water for optimal results)
  • 1/2 lb of finely ground coffee from Equal Exchange
  • a filter, such as cheesecloth or a standard coffee filter

Directions

  1. Measure out your water into a clean container.
  2. Measure out and finely grind your coffee into a separate clean container.
  3. Put your ground coffee directly into the mason jar.
  4. Slowly pour your water into the mason jar in a steady circular motion.
  5. Gently submerge all of the coffee grounds with a butter knife.
  6. Let the coffee steep for 12 hours.
  7. Remove the center lid piece from the mason jar and use the outer ring to secure the coffee filter or cheesecloth to the top of the mason jar mouth.
  8. Gently invert the mason jar over a clean glass container that you will use to store your concentrate.
  9. Be patient, this may take a few minutes – let drain completely.
  10. Your finished coffee concentrate can now be diluted with water or milk at a 1:1 ratio.
