Learn how to make cold brew at home! I like making a big batch at once and storing it in the fridge for quick, easy cups of coffee throughout the week.
fresh coarsely ground coffee*
Milk or plant milk
optional, for serving
Place the ground coffee in a 28-ounce mason jar, or similar. Add the water, then stir. Cover and set aside for 12 to 24 hours at room temperature.
Spread a piece of cheesecloth in a fine mesh strainer and place it over a large bowl. Pour the coffee into the bowl to strain it. Store the strained coffee in the fridge.
When ready to serve, pour over ice and add milk, if desired.
If the coffee is stronger than you'd like, dilute it with water or additional milk, as desired.
*Freshly ground coffee is best for cold brew. Pre-ground coffee will have a staler taste.
