“I couldn't find any other cold brewed coffee recipes here, but I noticed the large number of iced coffee drink recipes. The benefit of having cold brewed coffee is that you don't have to wait for hot coffee to cool down, which results in an old, bitter coffee flavor, nor do you risk watering down your drink with a lot of melting ice. This is more of a guideline than a recipe. Amounts will depend on personal taste. Experiment with quantities to find a strength you enjoy. Prep (active) time refers to amount of time to measure, mix, shake and strain. Cooking (passive) time refers to time the coffee sits and brews.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a jug with the coffee and water, screw on the lid, and give a good shake. I use a clean Simply Apple bottle.
  2. Rest at room temperature for about 24 hours, giving a shake every now and then.
  3. Strain the coffee through a filter or a French press and decant into a clean jug or pitcher.
  4. Taste. If the coffee is too strong, dilute it to your liking. If it is too weak, add more coffee grounds and let sit out another day.
  5. Store in the refrigerator and use in your favorite coffee recipes.
