The Cheapest & Easiest Recipe For At-Home Cold Brew Coffee

July 12, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo

During the summer months, I drink iced coffee like you wouldn’t believe. We’re talking a venti Starbucks cold brew every morning, and sometimes two if I stick around long enough to get a free refill with my gold card. I have an addiction – and an expensive one at that. Especially with the prices of coffee in New York, I’ve been trying more and more to brew my own at home at least a few times a week – and I think I’ve finally mastered the perfect cold brew recipe.

For the coffee-to-water ratio, I generally go with 3 parts water for every 1 part coffee. When you buy your coffee, make sure you ask for it to be ground coarsely – this will make life a lot easier when you go to strain the coffee. Simply combine your coffee grounds and water in a glass container and cover. A large mason jar like the Ball Quart Mason Jar ($6.63) works well and the lid prevents any accidental spillage! Leave the water and grounds to sit for 12-24 hours, either refrigerated or at room temperature. (Pro tip: Make it the night before!)

When the coffee is finished brewing, pour the mixture through a coffee filter or fine strainer to separate the grounds out, and your coffee is ready – it’s that simple. Don’t forget to have fun with the add-ins too! This blogger’s recipe suggests adding almond milk and maple syrup, and my mouth is basically watering over it.

To avoid watery coffee that stays chilled, I also love to put some cold brew into ice cube trays ahead of time – when the ice melts throughout the morning, your coffee stays strong!

While making your own cold brew can feel like a hassle at first, it’s actually super easy – and will save you tons of cash in the long run.
