How to Make Cold Brew Coffee Measurements
What is Cold Brew Coffee?
Cold brew coffee is a popular trend in the coffee world. It involves steeping coarsely ground coffee beans in cold or room-temperature water for 12-24 hours. The result is a concentrate that can then be used to make hot or iced coffee. Cold Brew coffee is known for its smooth, full-bodied flavor and low acidity.
Ingredients and Equipment
To make cold brew coffee, you’ll need: coarsely ground coffee beans; a strainer; and cold or room-temperature filtered water. The ratio of coffee to water is typically 1:4, but you can adjust it to your personal taste.
Brewing the Coffee
To make cold brew coffee, simply combine the coffee grounds and water in a container, stirring until all of the grounds are saturated. Cover the container and let it sit for 12-24 hours at room temperature. Then, use a strainer to separate the coffee grounds from the liquid.
Storing and Serving Cold Brew
The cold brew concentrate can be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks in the refrigerator. To serve, simply mix equal parts concentrate and water, or mix with ice and a splash of milk for an iced latte. You can also use the concentrate to make hot coffee.
Making cold brew coffee is an easy, no-fuss way to make delicious iced or hot coffee.
