Course Breakfast
Prep Time 10 minutes
Steep Time 1 day


  • 2 cups medium coarse ground coffee
  • 8 cups cold water


  1. Pour cold water into a large pitcher or container.

  2. Grind your coffee beans to a medium-coarse grind. 

  3. Gently stir the ground coffee into the water to make sure all of it is submerged. Cover the container and let sit in the fridge for at least 12 hours, preferably overnight. 

  4. When you’re ready to strain your cold brew, place a cheese cloth or a small, thin cotton dish towel over the mouth of a container and then cover with a small fine-mesh sieve. Pour the cold brew through the prepared sieve into a liquid measuring cup or pitcher. Store in fridge.

  5. To serve, fill a glass with ice. Pour in the cold brew coffee  (and. If too strong for your liking, add a little cold water to taste). Enjoy!
