Do you like Cold Brew Coffee? Are you buying it all the time? Well, I got to tell you that I stopped buying coffee altogether in the coffee shops unless I am meeting a friend.
I do not see a point at all when I can make coffee just the way I like it. Plus, I save a few bucks along the way.
I love a strong, dark roast coffee so sometimes I really cannot get that taste especially if I get it in the most popular cafes.
Yes, some of them do surprise me every now and then, but not often. I am very picky when it comes to coffee.
Since my daughter and I only drink coffee in our household, I make one batch for two of us. Of course, she does not drink it every single day, so I consume her serving as well.
I love making a smaller amount so that way we always have freshly made brew.
Add coffee in the French Press, then add filtered COLD water. Yes, you can add hot water, however, that is when the coffee starts to bloom and release different flavors, even aromas.
So when you pour cold water, you will get the lower acidity and some flavor compounds do not come through via cold brewing, which gives it a smoother taste.
At first add a bit of water, like a splash, then mix to make coffee wet, then add the rest. Stir well again!
Place the top on but do not push all the way down.
We need to allow the coffee to brew from 12 to 24 hours in the fridge. This is crucial for your cold brew.
If you like it stronger wait for 24 hours.
When the time comes to consume it, push the filter down and pour it into your glass, preferably over the ice.
You may add sweetener and cream, or perhaps enjoy it just the way it is.
