For cold brew coffee lovers, there isn’t anything quite like a sip of crisp, ice-cold coffee in the morning. Conveniently grabbing one on your way to school or into the office is something a lot of us have been missing out on this summer as we all continue to stay home.
Thankfully, cold brew is something you make for yourself right at home with our delicious and bold Cappio Cold Brew Coffee, and you don’t even need a coffee grinder to do it! Our cold brew coffee filter packs are made from handpicked Arabica Coffee beans to create a smooth, aromatic, and perfectly balanced batch of cold brew, so there’s no messy coffee grinding or mixing you have to do. We have included a simple recipe to make a pitcher of cold brew you can enjoy for up to two weeks and that tastes just like the ones you get in the drive-thru.
Making cold brew is as easy as adding your cold brew filter packs (think of a pouch made out of coffee filters, filled with your favorite coffee) to a pitcher of cool water and steeping the mixture in the fridge overnight. After your desired steep time is up, you simply remove the Cappio Cold Brew filter packs, leaving you with a tasty concentrate that can be served right away or stored for up to two weeks.
This process will give you two ways to make a mean batch of cold brew coffee that is nice and smooth with little bitterness or acidity- Yum!
Here’s What You Need to Make Your Own Batch of Cold Brew Coffee:
Recipe with Cold Brew Filter Packs:
- 2 Cappio Cold Brew Coffee Filter Packs
- 6 Cups filtered water
- A pitcher - a glass one that seals is great but not needed.
- Sealable glass jars (for storing up to 2 weeks if you don’t have a glass pitcher with a seal)
If you are not using Filter Packs you’ll also need:
- Coffee grinder
- 6 oz of coffee beans
- A cheesecloth or nut milk strainer
- Rubber band
- A second pitcher to strain the coffee into
- Something to stir with
- Grab your Filter Packs or make a coarse grind:
In this recipe, our Cappio Cold Brew filter packs are already filled with a perfectly coarse ground coffee. If you‘re not using filter packs, simply make a coarse grind by adding the 6 oz of beans to your coffee grinder and grind. Make sure the coffee is coarse like raw sugar. If the grounds are too fine, it won’t taste right due to the heat produced from the grinding process.
- Mix the coffee and water:
Grab a large jar or glass pitcher and toss the Cold Brew Packs in there. Then, add 6 cups of filtered water and make sure the packs are fully saturated. That’s it!No packs? No problem. Add your 6 oz of coarse grounds to the pitcher. Then, measure and add 6 cups of filtered water.
Note: 1 cup of water gets one ounce of coffee.
- Steep overnight:
Place the mixture in the fridge from anywhere from 8-24 hours. The longer you leave it, the more bold it will taste.. And feel hehe!
- Remove or strain the coffee:
Remove filter packs and toss after you remove your cold brew from the fridge.If you're not using the filter packs, you will need to strain the coffee grounds out after they have soaked, grab that second pitcher, and rubber band the cheesecloth around the top with room to pour the concentrate into it. Slowly pour it through your cheesecloth or nut milk strainer, and be careful not to squeeze the coffee through.
Note: This method can get down right messy, which is why we recommend using the Cold Brew Coffee packs.
- Serve your Cold Brew Coffee:
Pour a glass of cold brew straight or mix 1 part water and1 part cold brew for an easy going cup. Add your optional creamer or milk of choice and we always recommend some ice for a refreshingly, cool experience.
- Store the Cold Brew for later:
You can store in sealed jars or a sealed glass pitcher for up to 2 weeks in the fridge, but it never seems to last that long at my house!If you would like to try these easy to use Cappio Cold Brew Coffee Packs, or for some more recipe inspo, shop or visit our site right here at Eximius Coffee!
