Cold brew coffee is delicious! I don't know what else I can say about it. The cold brew process gives you great flavor without heavy acidity taste. But getting it every day can be costly, just like buying hot coffee everyday. But hot brew coffee machines are much easier to come by than cold brew ones. Yet, it's not too hard to make your own simple one.
What you will need:
1 (or 2) Foldgers 27.8 oz plastic coffee can with lid (empty)
1 3/4 - 2 cups Ground Coffee to brew
25oz. COLD water
2.5 qt. pitcher
Scissors or Knife (use with care)
Here is the basic plan
1. Put the water and coffee grounds in the empty can
2. Let brew overnight
3. Cut a hole in the top of the lid of the coffee can and add the filter
4. Drain brewed coffee into the pitcher
The brewing process does take a while. I prefer to mix everything in the evening and let it brew overnight. Then in the morning it is ready to go.
Step 1: Combine Water and Coffee Grounds
In the empty coffee can, combine the water and coffee grounds.
I use 2 cups of grounds for a little stronger flavor.
You'll need to experiment with how much to use for your personal tastes.
Then fill the can nearly full of water.
MAKE SURE YOU USE COLD WATER!!!
Something right out of the fridge would work best.
One time I used warm water and it tasted so wrong.
You can also make it a more concentrated version by using more coffee grounds or less water, then add additional water when you are pouring yourself a glass.
Stir up everything with your stirring stick so that all of the grounds are wet.
(optional) you can also put the lid back on and shake it around.
I'll swirl it around on the counter-top so I don't have to lift it up and rick spilling everything.
