Cold Brew

What you need to know about


Cold brew refers to a brewing method that uses cold water instead of hot water.

What is cold brew?

There are two different ratios to consider with cold brew:


1. The ground coffee to water ratio 2. The finished coffee to water ratio

When preparing cold brew, the ratio is flexible but we went for a 1:8 ratio (by volume). This means that for 1 part coffee you'll need 8 parts water.

Ground coffee to water ratio

So if you use 4oz of coarsely ground coffee, you'll need 32oz of water (4 x 8 = 32). For a stronger concentrate, go for a ratio of 1:5.

How you dilute your cold brew depends on how strong you like your coffee. If you're a fan of strong coffee, you could drink it straight as is.

Cold brew to water/milk ratio

Cold brew can be diluted with water or milk or both.  Start with a ratio of 2:1 (2 parts cold brew and 1 part water or milk). Taste and adjust.

You can prepare a cold brew either in a French Press (the french press cold brew ratio will be the same) or in a mason jar. You can also make a decaf version!
