Start your day with homemade cold brew coffee. All you need are freshly ground coffee beans and cold water!
Anyone else feel like cold brew is life? Well, really… Coffee in general has a pretty high spot on my priority list. I can’t start my day without a cup of Joe.
Luckily, I discovered a secret that I can not wait to share with you.
Are you ready for this?
Can you contain your excitement?
Homemade Cold Brew Coffee
is actually incredibly simple to make. We have been giving the recipe a good long test run and after 3 months deemed it fit to share. There is one small itsy bitsy tip I want to give before I set you free to discover the wonders of this amazing recipe.
What kind of coffee you should use for cold brew:
It’s a tricky slope. Really, you could use either a light or dark roast. It comes down to your preference. We prefer dark (many of our friends agree) but my sister feels like a light roast makes for a better beverage.
I feel like the best route to take is to start at one end and work your way down.
Also, know that cold brew is pretty forgiving. Older beans aren’t going to ruin your drink so take advantage of those grinds you’ve had sitting around for a few days.
How to make cold brew coffee:
It is so so easy and simple. Here’s what you will need: Fresh ground coffee beans and water. That’s it.
Start by pouring your coffee grinds into a large mason jar. Add your water. Give it a mix. And wait.
Waiting is probably the hardest part. You really want to let it sit overnight if not longer. That’s the secret to really good cold brew.
