Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

Loved for its milder and less acidic taste, cold brew coffee offers a refreshing twist to your daily caffeine routine. This cold brew method, rather than the traditional hot brew method, brings out a different flavor profile, making it a favorite in the warmer months or for those looking for a smooth yet rich coffee. This simple yet unique recipe will help you prepare a delicious batch of iced coffee at home using basic ingredients and equipment.

Ingredients:

– 1 cup of coarsely ground coffee beans (choosing a high-quality medium roast will give a balanced taste)

– 4 glasses of filtered cold or room temperature water

Preparation:

Start by placing coarsely ground coffee beans in a large jar or French press, whichever you have on hand. Then pour cold water or room-temperature water over the coffee grounds. The temperature of the water is important here, as cold or room temperature water slowly draws out the flavor of the coffee and minimally removes the acidic components, resulting in a milder taste.

When the coffee grounds are completely submerged in the water, gently stir the mixture so that all the grounds are wet. This step is important for an even extraction. Now put a lid on the jar, or if you are using a French press, just place the plunger on top without pressing down on it.

Leave this mixture at room temperature or in the refrigerator for about 12-24 hours. Brewing time can be adjusted to taste. A longer brew will result in a stronger, more concentrated flavor, while a shorter brew will be lighter. After brewing, strain the coffee using a fine sieve or coffee filter to remove the grounds. If you are using a French press, simply push the plunger to separate the coffee from the ground.

You now have a concentrate that can be diluted with water or milk according to your preference. Serve it over ice for a truly refreshing drink. The beauty of this cold brew coffee is its versatility and the fact that the concentrate can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks, offering you great coffee anytime you want it.

Enjoy your homemade cold brew coffee as it is, or add sweeteners, flavored syrups, or creamers to your taste. Happy brewing!
