Cold Brew

Cold Brew

TIS' THE SEASON, THE COLD BREW SEASON

Hot summer days are right around the corner. What better way to enjoy it than an icy cold freshly crafted cold brew.

 

HOW TO BREW: COLD BREW


INGREDIENTS:

 

You can make a decent cold brew with any type of coffee, however for the best results we recommend using a light to medium roasted single origin coffee to give you a floral or fruity flavour when consumed straight up. And a medium roasted coffee blend for chocolaty and nutty flavours when mixed with milk.

Our single origin varieties and blends are prefect for this.

Freshly ground coffee is always a plus. Be sure to set the grind setting to medium course for a gritty, sand like texture. This will ensure optimal extraction and won't over-extract your coffee to lead to a harsh, bitter flavour.

 

There are plenty ways to craft cold brew at home, and consequently a lot of equipment types to choose between.

That being said, we highly recommend the Hario 1L Cold Brew Pot. It’s a very simple design with only 2 parts: the glass vessel and the cylindrical mesh compartment. It is very easy to use and clean, making it the ultimate home brewer!

 

90G of coarsely ground coffee
1.1L of filtered water

Other useful tools :
Stirrer
Funnel

  

 
01.
 

Remove the cold brew pot lid and pour in ground coffee to the cylindrical mesh.

02.
 

Pour water into ground coffee and gradually stir. It is important to stir in between pouring water to ensure that all of the coffee grinds are wet.

 03.

Keep pouring until the pot is full.
 

04.

You are pretty much done! Put the lid back on and store in the fridge for 6-8 hours.

 

05.

After 6-8 hours, remove the mesh compartment where ground coffee is sitting.

 

06.

Discard all those grinds, (do this step directly over a bin). To do this unscrew the bottom of the mesh and push all the coffee out, straight to the bin.

07.

Simply wash the mesh out and store. Make sure to put the lid back on the glass vessel.

08.

Serve up. Simply pour over a glass with ice, and you if you like you can add milk. (Like we mentioned before a coffee blend is better suited for milk). Enjoy, share with friends and family!

 

Served black, we recommend a ratio of
1 part coffee : 12 parts water

To have with milk
1 part coffee : 8 parts water
