Cold brew coffee.

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


  1. Using boiling water, sterilize some elastic bands.
  2. Into the coffee filter paper put the coffee ground and tie tightly inside with the elastic bands.
  3. Place gently into jug and fill with cold water.
  4. Place lid on top and leave in the fridge to brew for 24 hours.
  5. Using 2 spoons, carefully squeeze out the liquid out of the coffee ‘bag’ 
  6. Use the grounds in the garden etc to recycle if possible as you are now done with this.
  7. 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.
