Cold Brew Coffee
April 26, 2016
The hottest drink around is actually pretty chill.
1Grind coffee beans. You’ll want something between French press grind and espresso grind.
2Add grounds to about two cups water. Mix and allow to steep about five minutes. This blooms the beans, so to speak, to get a better pull by the time we’re done.
3Add the rest of the water. Stir and cover in a cool part of your kitchen for 24 hours.
4In your favorite drip pot, Chemex or Hario (seen here) strain your liquid carefully. Discard beans, they’ve given their all.
5To make a glass: combine your concentrate with equal parts water and serve with your favorite flavorings or straight up. Go easy though, the stuff is easy to drink and packed full of caffeine so you might get the mid-morning jitters if you’re not careful.
Can you feel a cold front coming? Pour into your favorite mug and warm up. Hot cold-brew is just as soothing but not nearly as acidic as traditional drip pot brew.
