We all love a good coffee right, but what can be better than a hot coffee on a cold day? A cold coffee on a hot day!
Obviously being a barista, coffee plays a massive part in my life. It’s literally coffee, coffee that, coffee everything.
Only selected stores with costa offer cold brew coffee and I can’t go to the enemy for coffee can I?
So I decided I needed to do some research on coffee and how I can make cold brew without the fancy bottles, but with my pour over not, or you can use a large glass jug.
So this is how I did it!
- 35g freshly ground coffee
- Using boiling water, sterilize some elastic bands.
- Into the coffee filter paper put the coffee ground and tie tightly inside with the elastic bands.
- Place gently into jug and fill with cold water.
- Place lid on top and leave in the fridge to brew for 24 hours.
- Using 2 spoons, carefully squeeze out the liquid out of the coffee ‘bag’
- Use the grounds in the garden etc to recycle if possible as you are now done with this.
- Fill a cup 1/3 to 1/2 way up and then top up to top with ice and enjoy.
As I love my coffee, experimenting with it always excites me and will be using this recipe all summer
Use a favouring or milk to add extra flavour, such as vanilla or caramel syrup or coconut or almond milk.
Don’t tie too tight with elastic bands otherwise it won’t brew.
