Cold Brew Coffee is my new favorite thing. I had it bottled from La Colombe and fell in love. But it's ridiculously expensive for what it is. Luckily it is super easy to make at home and so much more cost effective. It's a strong brew & a lot of people recommend diluting the coffee before drinking, but I love it just the way it is. It's so smooth and less acidic than regular hot coffee and is so good iced. I also love that one batch can last a few days, so I don't have to brew everyday. Coffee can't get any better.
La Colombe's Corsica has been our go-to coffee for years. But we've recently found a new favorite. One Village's Artist Blend. It's a blend of light and dark roast beans and is perfect for our cold brew needs.
|Fresh, coursely ground beans make all the difference.|
|For every 1/3 cup ground beans, add 1 1/2 cup cold filtered water.|
|Stir and let sit in room temperature for 12 hours.|
|Filter coffee, refrigerate, and enjoy!|
