  1. A cold brew is a method of brewing coffee using cold water. Because the extraction is lower at cold temperature, cold brew requires more time, typically hours rather than minutes.
    Similarly to hot brewing without pressure, there are two ways you can cold brew – drip method or immersion method. With immersion you basically ground the coffee quite coarse, top up with cold water and leave to brew – depending on the coarseness this can be anything from 8 to 24 hours. A drip method is one where the water slowly pours, drop by drop, for hours as well.
    Cold brew produces coffee which is very high in caffeine, sweetness but relatively low in acidity. As coffee tastes more bitter when cold, it’s best NOT to use dark roasted coffee as some argue here as it would taste even more bitter. Best to use Specialty Grade Arabica beans only roasted for Sweetness, which is a medium roast profile.

    Ahh, cold brew. Drink it hot or drink it cold. Coffee purist might say the decreased acid is an abomination at worst and a terrible idea at best.
    But for someone who’s no longer in his 20’s and still enjoys a few cups of coffee throughout the day, the rich and smooth product produced by the cold brew process is the only way to go.
    While there are hundreds of products that can make cold brew coffee, there are really only two methods.
    The Drip Method
    This method most closely resembles the popular automatic drip that most home coffee makers use these days. Cold or room temperature water is slowly dripped (over the course of 5–10 hours) over ground coffee and then filtered.
    There are not a whole lot of players in this game and the Yama Drip Tower is the most popular.

    The Steep Method
    This process is like brewing tea. Mix the grounds with water and then filter. Or place the ground in a filter and submerge in water. Either way the process takes any where from 8 to 16 hours and produces a nice product at a more affordable price. The most famous (or at least the oldest) is the Toddy Cold Brew System.

  3. There are several ways to cold brew coffee and some people get very detailed and use quite complex methods. I prefer simplicity.

    Start with really good coffee. Just don’t even think of using Folgers or Maxwell House or other popular pre-ground coffee you find in the grocery, usually in metal cans. Yuck results. Get a good blend from a local coffee shop or a nice single origin like Ethiopian Yige Cheffe or a mild Central American if you don’t feel adventurous.
    Find a nice glass (preferred over plastic) container and determine how much you are going to make. I won’t prep it if I can’t make at least 1/2-gallon.
    Measure out and grind your beans to your typical taste preference, I use about 14-16 grams of beans (before grinding) for each 6 ounces of water.
    Grind to “medium” if you haven’t done this before. For some roasts, I prefer a fine grind, but for others I get a “sweeter” result with more coarse settings. Your mileage may vary.
    Put the measured coffee into the container
    Pour in a measured amount of cool water (I mark the container so I don’t have to measure separately now)
    Swirl the mix for a while until you see that all of the grounds are wetted
    Place in the fridge for at least 12 hours. I like 18-24 hours better
    Decant into a separate container to separate the grounds from the coffee as best you can
    Pour over ice, drink plain, or pour over ice with cream. Sweeten if you must.

  4. A cold brew coffee is brewed cold water or brewed with hot water and ice cube is added to the coffee that was brewed.

  5. Cold Brew is a type of iced coffee, made when coarse coffee grounds are steeped in cold water for an extended period of time (usually overnight 12-24 hours), then strained. This brewing process results in a less acidic, ultra-smooth coffee that is then served cold, over ice. Instead of hot water steeping the grounds for one hour, cold brew takes 24 hours to make and the result is a drink similar to espresso but with less caffeine and more flavor – think chocolatey/caramelly flavors.

  6. I used a Toddy for the first few years but I just switched to a much simpler system. The thing I use now is a two quart wide-mouthed Mason jar with a stainless steel filter that goes inside.

    How do you make cold brew coffee?

    You fill up the filter with fresh medium ground coffee (I prefer a blonde roast like Starbucks Veranda), then fill up the Mason jar with cold water, screw the cap on carefully, turn it upside down for a few seconds to make sure all the coffee comes into contact with water, then turn it back right side up and leave it in the refrigerator for 12–18 hours.
    In the morning, open it up, pull out the filter, let the liquid from the filter drip into a cup for a minute or two, empty the filter into your compost, then fill up the bottle with cold water, stir gently, and serve.
    I pour about 8 fluid ounces into a very large plastic cup before adding a little milk, a little vanilla syrup, and ice. You don’t have to add anything; make it the way you like to drink it.

  7. grind the coffee as normal. add to a jug of cold water. Stir. leave either on the counter or in the fridge.
    Obviously you will have to adjust the ratio of coffee to water to suit your taste.
    I usually leave it overnight, and then filter it through a normal paper coffee filter.

  8. The process to make cold brew coffee is simple. How you make it depends on the ingredients you use.
    For example you could use instant coffee which would be the most versatile way for everyone to enjoy iced coffee, or if you want to go that step further you could use ground coffee that you will either some type of machine, percolator or coffee filter.

    To make an iced coffee (using instant coffee)
    1. Add your preferred coffee amount, sugar and 50 ml of boiling water.
    2. Add ice and milk to a blender, if you can add some coffee syrup for extra flavour, an…

  9. Cold brew coffee is prepared by mixing coarsely ground coffee beans with water and letting the mixture steep for at least 12 hours. To make cold brew coffee, place coffee grounds in a filter or cheesecloth, then place the filter or cheesecloth in a jar or pitcher with the grounds. Pour room temperature water over the grounds slowly, so it slowly seeps through the grounds.

  10. Fill coffee maker with water
    Add ground coffee to filter basket
    Place pot or cup under spout
    While coffee is brewed, get busy doing things until you remember you brewed coffee an hour ago. Now your coffee is cold. Cold brew coffee. Time to microwave it or make another hot cup of coffee.

  11. I Love cold brew so this is a question that I had myself. People are used to cold brew being under pressure and very hot water. I pondered, was it possible to make it cold brew? Although I did research, it was trial and error they gave me the answer. Here are some tips that nobody really told me and I couldn’t find. It is only because I am coffee aficionado that I was able to answer this question myself.
    use the absolute best water possible. Don’t use tapwater. Tapwater makes horrible coffee. I use distilled water that adds the minerals back into the water. Use the absolute coldest water possible. To avoid the bitter experience, Use a light to medium espresso blend.
    use the Fine espresso grind. Cold brew usually uses of coarse grind but in this case you should use the espresso grind. This is not the time to use your hand grinder.
    Use a professional cold brew pot. Because you’re using coffee that’s ground fine, you will not catch all the grounds in cheese cloth. Sorry. Pour over espresso is not the time to be cheap.
    Stir Thoroughly. This is very important. It’s necessary to do this because the grind is so fine. Place your cold brew pot in the fridge for 12 to 16 hours. some people give it 24 hours to get the espresso Punch.

  12. The thing about coffee is that there are so many intricacies that you can really make it any way you want, but traditional cold brew is usually done something like this.
    You’ll need a large pitcher/bottle/some sort of container at least 1 liter. Take your beans, and for cold brew you’ll want to double or even triple however much you put into your maker for hot coffee—ie 3 scoops in your french press? 6 to 9 in this pitcher. Put the grounds in first, then pour cold (<45°F) water into them and stir them up so all the grounds are mixed in pretty well.
    Once you have your mixture, go ahead and stick the whole thing in your fridge for about 24 to 36 hours depending on how strong you want your coffee to be (and how strong your willpower is to not drink it immediately).
    After it’s steeped for a day or so, strain the whole thing into another pitcher (essentially just get the grounds out, how you want to do this is up to you). Now you’ve got cold brew coffee!

  13. I saw the other day a company that asked, “What was the funniest/out of the ordinary way you did cold brew”? and that’s a good point!
    The good thing about cold brew is you don’t need a fancy gadget or coffee maker to prepare it. If you have a pitcher that’s fine, a hermetic container, that is also good. When I travel I use whatever I have on hand with a lid.
    I prefer 24hrs cold brews, here is my recipe if you look for a concentrated option: Cold Brew Coffee Recipe
