Homemade Cold Brew Coffee
Learn how to make homemade cold brew coffee at home with just a few simple ingredients and minimal equipment for a fraction of the price.
- 8 ounces coffee grounds
- 4 quarts water room temperature
Combine the coffee grounds and water in a large container.
Stir well and cover.
Let sit for 12-24 hours (or minimum of 2 hours if you need your caffeine fix sooner). Allow it to sit at room temperature for best results but you can also store in the refrigerator.
After sufficient seeping time is done, line a fine mesh sieve with a coffee filter and sit it on top of large, clean container. Cheesecloth can also be used to strain the liquid but you may need several layers.
Strain the cold brew, replacing the filter as needed until all of the cold brew has been strained.
Store in a container with a lid in the refrigerator for up to one week.
