How to Cold Brew Coffee

If you are like many people, you still want to enjoy your coffee in the summer, but some days it is just too hot to think about consuming a heated beverage. This is where cold brew coffee comes into play.

Cold Brew Coffee Instructions:

1 1/3 c. of fresh finely ground coffee
4 c. of filtered water
1. Mix your ground coffee and water in a mason jar or French press. Be sure it is well stirred. Cover and let sit for at least 8 hours (up to 24 hours) at room temperature.
2. Put a coffee filter in a fine sieve over a bowl or 4 cup measuring cup (I prefer the measuring cup since it has a spout to make pouring easier later. Slowly pour coffee through the filter. This is your coffee concentrate.
3. Keep your coffee concentrate refrigerated. To serve, dilute it to preference. A one-to-three ratio is common (one-third coffee concentrate, two-thirds water). For a stronger cup of coffee, use a one-to-one ratio.You can also add milk, creamer, and or sweetener to your coffee.
It will keep at least one week. 
Yield: 4 cups of concentrate (makes at least 8 cups of coffee)
