How to Make Cold Brew in your own home – no fancy equipment necessary!



  • 1 cup roughly ground coffee beans
  • 8 cups filtered water


  1. Take grounds and place them in a sterilized glass container.
  2. Add water.
  3. Place cover on container and let sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  4. Remove and strain coffee beans and residue out by pouring coffee through a strainer and cheesecloth. Repeat 2-3 times or until coffee is fairly clear.
  5. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for several weeks.


  • remember that you can cut down on the amount of water/grounds ratio to make smaller batches.
  • you will also figure out what ratio works best for you – but this is a very “typical” ratio.  From here determine if you like your cold brew stronger or weaker.  To make it stronger allow it to brew longer, use more grounds/less water, use a stronger type of bean.  To make it weaker, use more water/less grounds.
