How To Make Cold Brew Coffee

     "Cold" and "Brew" are words that do not seem to work together, but cold brewed coffee makers have actually become very popular these days. On hearing the words "cold brew coffee" for the first time, many people are skeptical about why they should choose it over their regular cup of coffee

Advantages of cold brew coffee

There are certainly many advantages of drinking cold brew coffee. These advantages are related not only with the taste of coffee and the ease of preparing it, but also with positive health effects.

Research has shown that cold brew coffee consists of less acid than other sorts of coffee. Those who have heartburn and stomach problems can have cold brewed coffee without any concern. In addition to having less acid, coffee made by cold brewing consists of less caffeine too. While many of us adore the energy boost from the caffeine content of coffee, it is certainly not healthy to have it daily.

With less acid and caffeine, you could avoid several health problems. For those who suffer from insomnia, are forgetful and irritable due to drinking regular coffee, it is suggested that you drink cold brewed coffee as it will provide you relief.

The taste of coffee is also a very important factor since nobody likes to have either too strong or bland coffee. The taste of cold brew coffee is certainly much better than any other sort of coffee due to the fact that less oil is extracted from the coffee beans during the cold brewing process.

How to make cold brew coffee

You could simply utilize a cold brew coffee maker available in the market for making your favorite cold brew coffee or can make it yourself using cold water and newly brewed coffee.


- 1 lb of fresh coffee, medium to coarsely ground - 2 litres of filtered water


Just like any other method, the coffee will be much better if it is ground before brewing.

Put the ground coffee at the bottom of a large pitcher, a small boiler or in a pot. Pour 2 litres of cold water on the ground coffee. After about 10 minutes, when the grains rise to the surface, stir with a wooden spoon so that the entire coffee becomes completely wet. Cover and leave the mixture for 12 to 18 hours. The best technique for filtering of cold brew is definitely the good old paper filter. Without shaking the coffee too much, begin pouring it in the filter. A concentrate that is very dark but not opaque or blur, is formed.

Store the concentrate in an airtight container and put it in the fridge. It will be good for a minimum of two weeks.

To serve, dilute the concentrate to the desired strength. Some people like to dilute with two parts of water to one part of concentrate, served on ice. Others put concentrate directly on the ice. You could even dilute it with milk instead of water. If one wants to sweeten the iced coffee, it is best to utilize a liquid sugar such as agave, maple syrup or standard syrup.

Whatever cold brew coffee recipe you prefer, in order to start the adventure of cold brewed coffee it is important that you appreciate its true value and purchase your very own cold brew coffee maker now.
