What You'll Need

STEP 1

Weight out 20 oz. of ground coffee and 128 oz of cold water. This is your ratio, so if you are looking to scale up, do so accordingly.

STEP 2

Gradually add water in a circular motion, saturating all the coffee grounds. You can even take a long spoon to thoroughly mix the coffee. Cover with the plunger of French Press and let steep for 12-16 hours – either on your kitchen counter.

STEP 3

After you let the cold brew sit for 12 - 16 hours, depress French Press mesh strainer until all coffee grounds are at the bottom of the press. Pour cold brew concentrate into pitcher. This can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. Compost the used coffee grounds.

We recommend sweet and creamy French Chicory Cold Brew. Our favorite sweetener is simple syrup and half and half for the cream.
