Making Cold Brew Coffee at Home

If you want to make cold brew coffee at home, all you need is some great coffee (like our cold brew blend), a grinder, a mason jar and a coffee filter.

Start with a 32 or 64 ounce glass mason jar, depending on how much you want to brew.

Now grab your coffee.  You're going to use 1 ounce of coffee for every 6 ounces of water.  Weigh out the number of ounces you want and then grind it very coarsely in your grinder.  You want a grind that it a bit coarser than for french press, so it's pretty coarse.

Dump your ground coffee in the mason jar, and now add 6 ounces of water for every ounce of coffee.  Stir it up to get all the coffee grounds saturated and put a lid on the jar.

You can let your coffee brew on the counter or in the fridge.  On the counter you're looking at 12-18 hours of brew time and in the fridge you'll want somewhere between 18 and 24.  The process is so easy that you can just adjust your method until you figure out what you like best.

After about the first half hour of brewing, go back to your jar and stir up the coffee grounds a bit.  You'll see it has risen to the top of the jar.  A little stir will get the coffee grounds back in the solution for better brewing.

When your brew time has finished, you now need to strain the grounds from the delicious cold brew concentrate you've made.  An easy way to do this is is to line a kitchen strainer with a coffee filter and just slowly pour the contents of your mason jar through it.

You now have cold brew concentrate. This can be diluted with water at a ratio of 1:1 and you'll have a tasty, smooth, low acid and refreshing coffee drink on your hands.  You can of course adjust the dilution to your personal taste.
