Making cold brew coffee isn’t hard and doesn’t cost a lot of money either! In fact, it’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. All you need is a large jar or pitcher, coffee, and a strainer!
How to Make Cold-Brewed Coffee
There are many ways to prepare your cold-brewed coffee: french press, pitcher, a jar, really anything you have on hand. I used a large mason jar to help me make mine. By following the steps below, you will have 24 cups of liquid coffee concentrate to get you moving in the morning (or afternoon!).
For the cold brew, you will need a 2-gallon glass container. Again, I used a large mason jar to brew mine.
Pour an 11-oz package of ground coffee, like Lavazza’s Kiliminjaro, into a glass container.
Next, add 6 quarts of water. Stir until the ground are soaked. Cover and let steep for at least 10 hours.
After your coffee has soaked for at least 10 hours, pour through a cheesecloth-lined strainer or use your coffee pot filter! If you end up using a coffee filter, you will have to rinse it out numerous times because the grounds will start to build up.
You can keep your cold-brewed coffee in your mason jar in the refrigerator for a few months!
I do not recommend drinking this coffee straight from the jar! It is very strong and is a good base for a homemade iced coffee, latte, or frappe!
