Ahhh so excited about this. I love my coffee. Cold brewed coffee is amazing. It is 70% less acidic than hot brewed coffee, and you keep all the nutrients from the coffee beans. In Japan, cold-brew is produced in slow glass-drippers, but you can easily replicate the effect at home in a coffee bodum using cold water, coarsely ground single-origin coffee and patience!
Cold brewed coffee is concentrated, and so you will need to dilute your coffee by 50%, with a milk or water. I love my coffee strong, so sometimes i just drink it straight! But you do get one hell of a caffeine buzz so small doses please! I also made a Yummy Cold Brewed Hazelnut Vanilla Iced Coffee which you can see the recipe for here.
Cold Brewed Coffee
120g coarsely ground, preferably single-origin coffee
1 litre Water
Fill a large Bodum or jug with 1 litre of water. Add the coffee and stir.
Leave to brew at room temp for 12-24 hours.
Best served diluted, over ice of as an iced coffee drink :)
