Over the last few years, it seems every coffee shop has come up with their version of cold brew coffee. No wonder since it is smooth and tastes much better than watering down hot coffee over ice. It never gets cold enough and is never strong enough for me! A bonus of cold brew is that it is a great and easy way to get myself out the door on weekday mornings with as little hassle as possible. This is the perfect addition to my routine, because I can start it the night before, let it steep overnight in the fridge, pour over ice in the morning and be on my way. If you have a French Press, you are ready to go!
Cold Brew Made Easy
1/3 C Coffee Beans (depends on the size of your press and preference for strength of coffee)
Grind your beans to a coarse grind. This is important to keep the coffee from getting muddy. Add ground coffee to your French Press. Fill about 3/4 of the way with water. Top with the lid, but do not push the plunger down. Put in the fridge 3 hours to overnight. After steeping, push down the plunger, pour over ice and enjoy!
