Have you seen the latest ads for cold brew coffee? Curious if this trendy beverage has any merit? We were too. We read rave reviews of how smooth this beverage tastes. When we found out how easy it was to make at home, no heating required, we couldn’t resist giving it a try. And we’re so glad that we did. We've been told that this homemade version tastes better than Starbucks, so you won't be disappointed. You too can make and enjoy great cold brew coffee in the office using the purified water from your Ultimate H2O Solutions water dispenser.
The process of cold brewing ground coffee in water for 12 hours or more removes any bitter flavor or acidic bite from the coffee. The result is smooth, rich and well, we’re hooked! If you like coffee, give this recipe a try, we’re convinced you will be too.
Cold Brew Coffee Recipe - Drink it Hot or Iced
Iced coffee is a favorite, dessert-like treat that we can’t get enough of. Great tasting coffee starts with pure water and good coffee.
Select your favorite brand of coffee and purified water.
1 cup ground coffee (We love Columbian.)
5 cups pure water
Additional 5 cups pure water, for making iced coffee
Long handled spoon
Large glass jar with lid
French press, or a coffee filter and mesh strainer
The coffee concentrate is stored in the refrigerator. Remove quantity as needed.
To make a cup of hot coffee, you’ll add one-half cup of hot water and one-half cup of the cold brew concentrate to your mug.
Or, you can add another 5 cups of water after the brewing and straining process, and chill in the refrigerator. It’s ready to go when you are.
