Cold Brew Coffee

Jill Dalton
The weather is starting to warm up here on the East Coast so it is a perfect time for a cup of icy cold brew coffee. Before the quarantine, it was one of my favorite treats to go to a local coffee shop and grab a coffee in the afternoon. Luckily, it is just as simple to make at home and will save you a tidy sum of money at the same time. All you need are some coffee beans and a plant milk of your choice and you will be on your way to a refreshing, ice cold cup of cold brew!

  • Place the grounds into a large jar.
  • Pour the 4 cups of water over the top and gently stir.
  • Put the lid on the jar and leave it on the counter or in the fridge overnight (no more than 15 hours).
  • Once it is done soaking overnight, place a strainer lined with a coffee filter over another jar.
  • Pour coffee mixture into the strainer and let it drip into the container below.
  • Pour about a 1/2 cup of this mixture into a cup filled with ice.
  • Pour plant milk over the coffee and add your flavorings if you choose.
  • Stir and enjoy!

      1. My guess is it’ll end up getting bitter. Hopefully Jill will respond and set the record straight.

      2. You are right Jen, if you soak it too long the bitterness comes back and it can also taste a bit like ashes.
