Cold Brew Coffee
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!

How long will it keep in the fridge?
It will keep for up to two weeks in the fridge. =)
This was absolutely delish! It tasted like an experienced barista made my coffee this morning. 🙂
Why should it not rest longer then 15 hours?
My guess is it’ll end up getting bitter. Hopefully Jill will respond and set the record straight.
You are right Jen, if you soak it too long the bitterness comes back and it can also taste a bit like ashes.
