When we made the long trek up to Wisconsin for a long and wonderful midwestern adventure, we came home with a lot more than just memories and, of course, a case or two of Spotted Cow. We were enlightened by some dear friends with yet another great way to love our beloved drink, coffee. I love the process of making coffee, and this is another wonderful method to explore for yourself! It’s been an afternoon treat in this household for a couple weeks now, and I’m sure it will continue on for years to come. Enjoy!
I bought our cold brew items on amazon. Here and Here. First, start by grinding your beans. Then, place the coffee beans in the filter portion of the carafe.
**Update** We got a new grinder, here. I use a 22 grinder setting for chemex coffee but for cold brew you don’t want it that fine. Ideally a 30 or so works best for us, more like french press consistency.
Then place the filter into the carafe, placing the little circle of the filter on the handle side.
Then, pour away with cold tap water. Fill it up and place it in your refrigerator for a solid eight hours.
After 8 hours, we pour our cold-brewed into a jar to enjoy the whole week! I placed a “D” using washi tape, because we usually make one decaffeinated, fully caffeinated or half caff in our refrigerator.
On ice with a little almond milk is the way we like our cup of joe but enjoy it anyway you like it! Flavored? Soy milk? Straight? So many fun options for this great treat!
