Stay away from people who say that it's too hot for coffee. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
It's never too hot for coffee, especially when there's COLD BREW!
While there are an unlimited amount of cold brew coffee methods out there, we're here to bring you one of our favorites. And the best part about this (and most) cold brew recipe, is that it takes little effort or time. Just a bit of pesky patience.
Here's what you do:
1. In a one-quart Mason jar, submerge 3/4 c. of your favorite coarse-ground coffee grounds in 1 c. of water. Let sit overnight.
2. Using an ultra-fine sieve (or a piece of cheesecloth draped over a small strainer, strain the coffee concentrate into a clean container.
3. Dilute coffee concentrate with water to taste. This is important, because too much water will make the cold brew too weak. Generally, a ratio of one-to-one works well. If you plan to add milk or other additives, you may prefer to make the mixture a bit more potent.
4. Experiment! The best way to find the cold brew recipe that works for you is to try out different mixtures. Different roasts of coffees will yield different flavors and notes. Letting the concentrate steep for more than 24 hours may yield a stronger flavor as well. Try it out to see what works best for you. There's no wrong way. (Yes, we said that, coffee snobs.)
