Cold Brew Coffee

If you have had our Cold Brew Coffee and wanted to know how to make it yourself; or hadn't but still wanted to make some yourself, you're in the right place. 

Cold Brew Coffee is a style of brewing coffee in which the coffee grounds are never heated, they are instead steeped like tea. This style of brewing yields much lower acidity and can be stored safely in your fridge for a week or two. 

To start you'll need:

Ground Coffee
A Container to hold the Coffee while it is brewing 
Some sort of filter (Paper, Metal Sieve, Cheese cloth, a French Press)
A Second Container to hold the coffee post brew
If you have a Toddy System, that will include brewing container, filter, second container.


When we make our Cold Brew we use a ratio of 3 cups of ground coffee to 16 cups of water, this makes a gallon of Cold Brew Coffee. If you want to make a half gallon, you can use 1.5 cups of ground coffee and 8 cups of water. You can make however much you want but a ratio of 3/4 cup beans to 1 1/2 cups water. 

Put the grounds into the brewing container and then pour all of the water in gently. Stir lightly just to make sure all of the grounds get wet. 

Then wait 12 hours. Put your brewing container in the fridge while you brew it.   For additional strength you can wait longer than 12 hours.

After you've waited, use your filter to separate the grounds and the coffee. This recipe makes a concentrate, so make sure to dilute it with water (we do this for our markets!) We recommend at least a 1:1 ratio of water to coffee, but if that's too strong for you, you can go up to 2:1 (we do this ratio for markets)

Now your cold brew is good to drink! It will keep in the fridge for a week or two.
