Cold Brew Coffee

Cold brew coffee!

We've been on a cold brew coffee kick over the last few weeks. In fact, we love it so much more than instant coffee, we went out and bought a freaking coffee grinder so we could make better cold brew coffee!

What is cold brew coffee, I hear you ask!

Simply put, it's ground coffee you leave in water for about 20-24 hours before filtering it out and bottling the liquid. In the fridge, we've kept ours for about 10-12 days. (Those coffee grounds work great for compost by the way - don't just throw them out!)

We found the method we use from Jamie Oliver's Food Tube channel! Check out the video below to learn how to make your own cold brew!



And once you've made your coffee, you'll want to watch this one too!



My personal favourite way to drink it is in frothy latte form.

For this you will want to heat up just under a mug of milk, and then froth it up using either a hand-held frother, or, if you have more kitchen gadgets than strictly necessary, a jug frother (we actually use this quite a lot - it packs a lot more froth punch than the hand-held ones!)

Cold brew coffee!


Cold brew coffee!

Then pour as much cold brew coffee in as you want. A good glug does it for me.

Cold brew coffee!

Watch the coffee alchamy and then sit back and relax!
