Cold Brew Blend
Any time is a good time for COLD BREW! We have updated the blend recipe this year for the cold brew. This year the blend is more bold but with amazing natural sweetness. The blend is well rounded but includes some amazing chocolate notes as well as a hint of sweet pecan.
So...what is cold brew coffee? Very simply cold brew coffee is coffee created by using cold (or cool) water and coffee grounds. The difference from regular coffee is that regular, hot coffee is a fast process where the water is only touching the coffee for 5-8 minutes and uses heat to extract the flavor. Cold brew coffee uses time vs. hot water to extract the flavors from the bean. This results is a deep and rich flavor with generally low bitterness and low acid.
Cold Brew Recipe
Please note the amount of time needed to make a cold brew batch. You will need to make this ahead of when you plan on serving this amazing drink!
Equipment Needed (Beginner)
Mason (or Ball) Canning Jar and lid - use a larger jar if you have one
Coffee Filter (may need a few)
Large Bowl or Pitcher (pitcher preferred)
Coffee (must be a coarse grind)
For a concentrated cold brew (where you will add additional water or milk when you are ready to drink it) you will use a 1:1 ratio (1 pound of coffee to 1 gallon of water). Therefore, a half gallon of water (64 oz.) you would use a half pound (8 oz.) of coffee. It sounds like a lot but remember, this is a concentrate and a little will go a long way when you prepare your drink later on.
Pour the water in your canning jar first. Next, add your coffee grounds and stir gently just enough so all grounds get wet. After that, put the lid on and now we wait. The jar can stay either on the counter or it could go into the refrigerator. Studies have been done and there has been no difference in quality of the drink when changing the location of jar for the steeping period. Let the jar sit untouched for 12-16 hours but be careful to not go over the 20 hour mark. Once 20 hours is passed bitterness will begin to creep in which is no good.
Get your large bowl or pitcher out now. Put the strainer over the pitcher and the cheese cloth in the strainer. Next, take the lid off of the jar and slowly pour the concentrate into the strainer being careful not to get any grounds in the pitcher. Now we have filtered out the large amount of the grounds but you may notice there is some soot left over in the jar. Wash out the jar and the strainer. Put the strainer over the jar with the coffee filter in the strainer. Slowly pour the drink from bowl or pitcher into the coffee filter. It may take a bit of time for the liquid to drip through, be patient! If it gets stopped up, change the filter with a new one. This coffee filter process gets out the sludge or fines that got through the cheese cloth. After all the liquid is filtered you're done and now you can enjoy!
Now you can add ice to a glass, pour in your cold brew concentrate and add water or milk (as much as you like depending on your taste).
