Cold Brew Brewing Basics

The Cold Brew Basics

Cold brew coffee is a refreshing and tasty alternative to traditional hot brewed coffee. It has a smoother, less acidic flavor and can be enjoyed hot or over ice. Making cold brew coffee at home is simple and only requires a few basic steps:

How To Brew:

  • Step 1

    Start by gathering your ingredients. You will need coarsely ground coffee beans from Just Coffee :). Filtered water, and a container for brewing.
  • Step 2

    Measure out the desired amount of coffee beans and grind them on the coarse setting of your grinder. You will need about twice as much coffee as you would use for hot brewed coffee, as the flavor extraction is slower and less efficient in cold water.
  • Step 3

    Place the ground coffee in your brewing container and add filtered water, stirring to ensure that all of the coffee is fully saturated.completely.
  • Step 4

    Cover the container and let it sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours, depending on how strong you like your coffee. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor will be.
  • Step 5

    After the desired brewing time has passed, strain the coffee through a fine mesh sieve or coffee filter to remove the grounds.
  • Step 6

    Your cold brew coffee is now ready to enjoy! You can serve it over ice, dilute it with milk or water, or heat it up if you prefer it hot.
