  • *Period of time: You can let it sit shorter or longer than 24 hours; the shorter you let it sit, the weaker the coffee will be – the longer you let it sit, the stronger it will be. Everyone has their own personal preference so try it, taste and it and determine how long you like to let it steep.
  • Stronger Cold Brew: If you want stronger coffee let it sit longer, use an additional 1/4 cup of beans and use stronger beans.
