  • Grind whole coffee beans, OR use any previously ground coffee you have on hand
  • Place 1 cup coffee grounds in a covered bowl or pitcher. Cover with 6 cups cold water.
  • Stir up the grounds so they are all wet and mixed fairly well.
  • Let coffee grounds and water sit in the fridge for at least 8 hours (I usually let it sit for 12 hours). 
  • Pour the coffee and grounds through a fine-mesh nut-milk bag or layered cheesecloth to separate the coffee from the grounds. 
  • This coffee is concentrated a bit, so it's usually double strength. I prepare my cold brewed coffee this way: 1/2 cup coffee concentrate + 1/2 cup unsweetened almondmilk + Stevia drops
  • To serve: mix with as much unsweetened non-dairy milk or creamer as you like. Since this is concentrated, I usually use equal parts cold brew coffee concentrate and almondmilk
  • Enjoy!
