One of the things I switch come spring besides my shoes, is my coffee order. Something about a hot latte just doesn’t hit the spot the same way a cold iced coffee does. In an effort to save money and be able to have an iced cold coffee with breakfast, I’m beginning a new weekly routine of getting a batch of this ready every week. It’s beyond easy and you’ll soon become as addicted as I am. Here’s how to make cold brew coffee at home.
How To Make Cold Brew Coffee At Home
I start with a 3 to 1 ratio of water to my favorite coffee grinds. Add them to a large pitcher and give it a good stir so all your grinds get mixed with water. Let sit in the fridge for 24 hours. Once it’s sat in the fridge, strain it through a coffee filter or cheese cloth to remove all the grinds. Pour the coffee concentrate back into your pitcher and store in your fridge for up to 2 weeks. This is now a great coffee concentrate and you can add as much water as you like to it when you make your morning coffee. I recommend doing a 1:1 ratio whether it’s your water, or favorite milk.
I also love to make coffee ice cubes for this so that when they melt, they aren’t diluting my coffee. Just freeze any leftover coffee, sweeten it if you like, and you’re good to go. It’s GENIUS. When will the coffee chains learn?
