Best Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Equipment

  • coarsely ground coffee
  • water
  • milk (optional)
  • sugar (optional)
  • pitcher, jar or French press
  • coffee filter or cheesecloth

Step 2: Determine the Best Ratio of Coffee to Water

One of the best things about cold brew is that it’s so customizable. You can technically make it as strong or as weak as you like, but a general rule of thumb is to use a coffee to water ratio of about 1:4. For example, if you use 1 cup of ground coffee, you’ll use 4 cups of water.

Step 3: Mix the Coffee and Water

In a large pitcher, jar, or French press, mix together your coffee and water. Make sure all of the coffee grounds are fully saturated.

Step 4: Steep

Cover your container of choice and let it sit in your fridge overnight, or for at least 12 – 16 hours. 

Step 5: Filter

Once your cold brew has finished steeping, it’s time to filter out the coffee grounds. If you’re using a French press, simply press down on the plunger to filter out the grounds. On the other hand, if you’re using a jar or pitcher, pour the cold brew through a coffee filter or cheesecloth to remove the grounds.

Step 6: Add Milk and Sweetener (Optional)

Now that it’s ready to drink, you can add milk and sweetener to taste. Serve over ice and enjoy!

Best Cold Brew Tea Recipe

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients and Equipment

  • loose leaf tea or tea bag of your choice
  • water
  • milk (optional)
  • sugar (optional)
  • pitcher, jar, or French press
  • tea infuser or cheesecloth

Step 2: Determine the Best Tea to Water Ratio

Again, there’s some flexibility here! Generally, though, you’ll want to use 1 tea bag or 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea for every cup of water. However, feel free to experiment!

Step 3: Mix the Tea and Water

Mix the tea and water together in your container of choice. If you’re using a teabag, consider snipping off a corner and dumping the loose tea in for best results. Or, if you prefer an easier clean up, just throw it in as-is!

Step 4: Steep

Cover your container and pop it in the fridge. For white or green teas, steep for at least 6 hours. For oolong or black tea, try about 10.

Step 5: Filter

After the tea has finished steeping, it’s time to filter out the leaves (or teabag). If you’re using a French press, simply press down on the plunger to filter out the leaves. Otherwise, pour the cold brew through a coffee filter or cheesecloth to remove the tea.

Step 6: Add Milk and Sweetener (Optional)

You’re done! Again, if you like, you can add milk and sweetener to taste. Serve over ice and enjoy!
