It's summer here. It's hot. It's time for cold brew.

Here's what you need:

Ingredients:
600g fresh, filtered water
Tools:
1 large mason jar
1 small mason jar
cheese cloth
strainer and pot

The amounts of water and coffee suggested here makes for a ratio of 1:4 (1 part coffee to 4 parts water), which means you're making a concentrate. For reference, an espresso is usually 1:2 and a filter coffee is 1:16.

How to make cold brew coffee | Kaito Coffee Blog

Here's what you do:

1. Add ground coffee to large clean mason jar.
2. Pour in fresh, filtered water. Brita-filtered is good enough. 
3. Stir it like a boss.
4. Seal it tight.
5. Put it in the fridge for 18 hours. Anywhere from 12 to 24hrs works though. Do what's best for you. 
6. Strain the whole thing through a cheesecloth. This can get a bit messy, so I like to line a strainer with the cheesecloth and pour into a container with a wide opening, like a pot. Then gather the cheesecloth around the wet coffee grinds and squeeze any last drop of that magic liquid out that you can.
7. Transfer your cold brew concentrate into a smaller mason jar, and seal it. Use within a week.

Here's some drinks inspo:

- straight up over ice .... or icecream if you're feeling freaky. I see you affogato lovers. 
- over ice and diluted with fresh, sparkling or tonic water. Then splash in a bit of bitters! Or mix it with a milk of your choice. And maybe add a dash of homemade fruit/flower infused simple syrup.  
- spike it, baby! Some of my favourites include whiskey, rum, Amarula or Grand Mariner. 
- death before decaf? Umm, not here. You may very well feel like cold brew all day long my dear coffee lover ... so it might be wise to consider using a fabulous decaf bean, like our Reverie coffee.
