Since I've been gone from blogging I discovered an easy way to enjoy cold brew coffee at home. Sadly I once thought cold brew was simply cold coffee, how wrong I was! My take is:
- 1 cup coarsely ground coffee (key -- coarse!)
- 4 cups water
- soak grounds in water for 10-12 hours.
- pour mixture through filter (I use the one from our coffee pot) into a container (I use our spare carafe). I hear a french press works as well.
The result is divine! Caution -- don't let those grounds go down the drain or what you save on buying cold brew will be eaten up with a plumbing expense. I purchase coffee in bulk and get at least two travel mugs out of each 1:4 cup creation. Hint, add a few drops of chocolate milk for the ultimate win!
Thanks for reading, and leave a comment if you desire!
