Love cold brew? This is the ultimate cold brew carafe. Using a submerged method of brewing, it can take 12-24 hours but you are left with a rich creamy brew. You can even make an extract out of it, and store it for up to 2 weeks.
Place the filter in the carafe. Fill with your desired coffee grounds. Use a coarse grind to ensure that none of the grinds gets through the filter. Make sure the spout stopper is in place.
Tip: Use a burr grinder and freshly ground coffee for the best results.
The most flexible part of coffee brewing, and arguably the one that affects the taste most. For a medium strength coffee, you should measure out 2 level tablespoons per (6oz) coffee cup. If you're using whole beans it will be about 10 gram.
Tip: It is very easy to make a coffee concentrate with our cold brew, which you can later pour over ice, use for cocktails, or even mix with hot water for an extremely smooth hot coffee. In that case, use ¼ of the amount of water your using, for instance, if you are using 27 fluid ounces of water, use 90 grams (weight) of ground coffee.
This is by far the most overlooked step in coffee brewing. Pour some water over the coffee until thoroughly wet. This will make your coffee expand a process called blooming, releasing the most desirable flavors from the grounds. Let sit for about 2-5 minutes.
Tip: Use filtered water for the best tasting coffee.
Finish pouring the water over the coffee grounds. Fill at least till all the coffee is submerged in water but at the most till just below the spout. Cover the carafe with the glass and silicone lid. Now allow the coffee to finish brewing for 12-24 hours.
Tip: Experiment with the brewing times based on how you like your coffee, after a couple of tries you'll know exactly how long to let it brew to meet your preference.
Discard The Grounds
Once it is done brewing remove the stainless steel filter. And replace the glass cover on the carafe. The fit will not be as tight as before but will be good enough to keep your coffee fresh. As long as the lid and silicone stopper is in place, you can store the brew in your fridge for over a week.
Tip: To ensure long lasting results, clean the filter out with water immediately after use. If you see that the holes are starting to get clogged, wash with a mixture of water and baking soda, or you can use Osaka's Sodium Percarbonate Cleaning Solution.
Enjoy Your Coffee
Just pour into your favorite cup and enjoy the best tasting coffee you ever had.
Tip: You can add spices like cinnamon and chicory in the filter while you brew, for some amazing coffee drinks.
