- Coconut Milk
Step 1: Add Coffee Grounds
Add all of the coffee grounds into the larger of the two pitchers
Step 2: Add Water
Add all of the water into the pitcher with the coffee grounds
Step 3: Stir
It is important that you stir this mixture with a wooden spoon- Stirring the grounds with metal can give the drink an unpleasant taste
Step 4: Place in Fridge for 8-12 Hours
Patience young grasshopper…but if you’re not good at the whole patience thing, try making it right before bed so you get to enjoy it that next morning when you wake up
Step 5: Stain and Enjoy!
Strain the mixture in the larger pitcher through a cheesecloth or coffee filter into the smaller pitcher. Prep your coffee how you like it (I like to add coconut milk) and enjoy!
- Ignoring that it needs to be coarsely ground coffee
– brewing cold brew with coffee grounds that are too fine will not only make for a disturbingly gritty cup of coffee but it will make your straining process painstakingly slow. Don’t have a coffee grinder? Order them coarsely ground here! —> Cold Brew Grounds
- Not waiting at least 8 hours
– this will give you a weak cold brew that is comparable to very watered down coffee. So if you know you won’t be able to wait the full 8-12 hours then you may as well just make regular coffee and pour it over a full cup of ice…just saying.
- Forgetting your cold brew and leaving it brewing in the fridge for too long
– set a timer on your phone so you don’t forget to take it out on time! Or pucker up because you’re about to have some STRONG coffee.
