Cold-Brew Coffee Recipe
Total Time: 8 hours
Yield: 6 cups
- 6 ounces medium-roast coffee beans
- 3 cups cold water
- Coffee grinder
- French press (optional)
- Fine-mesh strainer
- Coffee filter
- Grind coffee and put grounds into a large French press or glass container. Add water, stir, cover, and leave undisturbed at room temperature overnight.
- The next morning, press the coffee or strain it through a coffee filter and fine-mesh strainer. Double-strain it if there are still grains in the coffee.
- Dilute the concentrated coffee with water to your liking (should be about 1:1 ratio of coffee to water). Pour some into an ice cube tray for coffee ice cubes; you can use these later to eliminate any risk of diluting your iced coffee with water. Store the rest in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or, you know, drink it all immediately.
