Cold Brew DIY Kit
If you have never tried Cold Brew coffee, you are missing a beautiful experience. Who would ever think that placing fresh roasted ground coffee into cold water would create a flavour profile that is outstanding? Cold brew coffee is full in flavour, but ultra smooth and refreshing on it's own or mixed with cream and a flavour shot!
Using the organic CoffeeSock®, allows for more oils to pass through the filter while being conscious about the environment by using a reusable filter.
We recommend using Zé Café Brazil as your cold brew coffee for a rich, nutty & smooth result! For Cold Brew Tea, try our Berry Thirst Quench for a refreshing, healthy tea that has it's own semi sweet -semi-tart taste!
Initially, boil new filters in fresh water to clean and shrink for 10 minutes.
Fit ColdBrew filter over lip of wide mouthed canning jar.
Add desired amount of coarsely ground coffee.
We recommend 3 ounces by weight (1 cup dry) per 32 ounce serving.
Wet (bloom) the dry coffee and let set for 30 seconds, allowing the water to fully penetrate the coffee grounds from the center. This is necessary to maximize flow and to avoid dry pockets, and weak brew.
Add filtered water in batches or very slowly, to fill.
Close filter by gathering the top of fabric together, wrapping the strap around the gathered neck of the filter, and pass through the attached ring (see video).
Times vary with volume of brew and ambient temperature. Warmer temperatures and shorter brew times yield a brighter and less extracted brew. Long cold soaks produce rich and smooth brews.
