Cold brew is more than a slowed-down version of hot coffee. Hot water will bring out the acids in coffee, a characteristic that professional tasters call “brightness.” Cold water doesn’t but still gets the full range of mouthfeel and sweetness. 

What you need:

  • 100 grams of coffee
  • 1 liter of water
  • Cheesecloth
  • Strainer
  • Bottle or jar, for storing your cold-brew

Here’s a simple instruction to make your own cold brew coffee at home:


Coarsely grind the coffee: Grind the coffee beans on the coarsest setting on your grinder. If you don’t have one, you can get our Everyday Ground Coffee.


Combine coffee and water: Transfer the coffee grounds to a container then pour water on top. Make sure the grounds are thoroughly saturated with water.

Steep overnight: Cover the container and let the coffee steep for about 12 hours. The coffee can be refrigerated or left on the counter.

Strain the coffee: Line strainer with cheesecloth and place it over a bottle or jar then pour the coffee through the strainer.

Store coffee in the fridge: Cold brew coffee can stay fresh up to 2 weeks.

Serve and enjoy!
