Cold Brew Coffee

I have a confession to make, I LOVE COFFEE!

I was introduced to cold brew at my local Starbucks but it started to get expensive. It's like $4 to get a Venti and I would need to get maybe two or three them in one day because they dilute it and it wasn't strong enough for me. So I decided to start making my own at home.

Cold brew is smoother, less bitter and more flavorful then regular hot coffee.
It's really easy to make. Don't need a lot of items to make it.


I like the drink my daily 'cup' of coffee in a mason jar.

Items you will need 
Whole Bean Coffee and a Coffee Grinder or Small Food Processor

I used a local brand that is a mixture of  medium and dark roast

It maybe $2 or $3 for a small pack.

Large Pitcher

Let's get started to make some coffee.
First measure out two cups of coffee beans to a course ground. 

Second cut around a six inch piece of cheesecloth then place a half of cup of grounds.  Tie the top of the cloth and place on the bottom of the pitcher. 
Make four 1/2 cup bundles
 Third pour seven cups of filtered water into the pitcher.

 Fourth place in the refrigerator for at least 24hours 

Filter the cold brew through a piece of cheesecloth and a mesh strainer so none of any loose coffee grounds get  into your finished coffee.

Makes enough for 4 to 6 cups of coffee.  Stays fresh up to 2 to 3 days.


  1. Your right! Starbucks is ridiculously expensive and usually not worth its expensive price either. I do like the sound and concept of cold brew!

    1. Cold brew is so much better than regular coffee because its smoother and less bitter also if you make it at home you can make a couple of days worth of coffee.
