Iced cold brew coffee is the best cure for hot weather! Here’s a simple guide to making cold brew super easily (and timed perfectly for the hot afternoon)
The easiest brewer for cold brew is definitely the French Press! Get the job done & easy to clean up 😚
First thing first, use medium or darker roast coffee for cold brew. Light roast coffees are not as soluble and very difficult to extract with room temperature water. We highly recommend espresso roast coffee for cold brew.
Use 25g of coffee (or more if you prefer stronger brew) & grind slightly finer. The coffee we used in the clip is a medium roast Kenya coffee, so the grind size is pretty fine (about Aeropress grind size) for a sweeter cold brew.
Then pour in 300ml of water & let it steep for 15-18 hours. We started the brew in the afternoon and steep overnight, then filter the next morning & put it in the fridge so that it’s cold in the afternoon 😍
The brew time is very forgiving, you can’t really taste the difference of 1-2 hours. We prefer room temperature for cold brew, it makes a much sweeter coffee!
Lastly, serve with ice & enjoy 😋
Cold brew to pair with milk? Yes absolutely! However, there are a few things to take note.
Also, use MORE coffee, between 1:6 to 1:8 are perfect! There you'll get a more intense cold brew to pair with milk.
Lastly, always pour milk to taste. You can always add more milk in, but you can't reverse if you pour too much.
There's a start for everyone who wants to brew delicious coffee at home. But not everyone had a good start, including us 🙃
