In this Instructable, Duby from Tinker will explain his process; How to make Cold Brew Coffee the easy way.

There are many ways to make coffee and the results for flavour and strength vary per technique. Cold Brew creates a wonderfully smooth coffee, with low acidity and has the highest level of caffeine.

Watch the short video or follow the written steps with photographs as a guide.

Happy coffee making.

Step 1: Grind Your Coffee

Start off by grinding one cup of freshly roasted coffee beans to a medium consistency, somewhat like the texture of beach sand.

Step 2: Just Add Water

Place the ground coffee into a large glass container and add 4 cups of filtered water.

Step 3: Stir and Cover

Stir & cover with cling film. Then place in the fridge and leave it overnight or for a minimum of 12 hours.

Step 4: Filter Cold Brew - First Pass

Pour the cold brew through a sieve and return the course grinds back to the earth.

Step 5: Filter Cold Brew - Second Pass

Place one square of paper towel into a clean sieve and allow the cold brew to do a second filtration. This time you will be removing the finely ground coffee.

Step 6: Ready to Enjoy!

Once complete, your cold brew is ready to drink. 8) Heat it up or serve it cold over ice, with or without milk.

    Hot brew can be very smooth if it's a single origin grade 1 coffee bean and if roasted correctly, i personally like cold brew just for the reason that its cold)) although you wont get a proper extraction this is a good and easy instructions i would only advise to use medium and medium to dark roast for cold brew.


    Question 4 years ago on Step 1

    I don´t have coffee bean, can use already ground coffee? Nice recipe!!!

    Of course you can. Roasted beans, freshly ground will always give you the best flavours, however there is nothing wrong with using pre-ground coffee. Have a go and let me know how it turned out for you. Enjoy =)
