Cold-brew is a delicious, exhilarating, and simple way to enjoy a cup of coffee in the summer. Waiting for your new favorite drink will be the most difficult aspect of the procedure. Freshness and flavor are ensured when you make your own cold brew concentrate, which is readily available in most grocery shops. It is also more cost-effective.
If you can, make a batch of concentrate on a weekly basis so that you always have some on hand when you need a pick-me-up. Prepare as desired and keep chilled in a jar with a tight lid in the refrigerator. A touch of cinnamon may also be added, as can milk substitutes and simple syrup in whatever flavor you want. Desserts may also benefit from the use of this concentrate. Try it in chocolate pastries, ice cream, or frozen popsicles with sweetened condensed milk.
Cold Brew Concentrate Recipe
3 1/2 cups cold water
6 ounces coarsely ground coffee beans
- Collect all of the necessary ingredients.
- In a big pitcher or jar, add the ground coffee and mix it well. Add water to the mixture.
- Make sure all of the coffee grinds are well soaked. A clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth may be used to cover the dish and let it sit at room temperature for up to 12 hours.
- Set a fine-mesh sieve over a big pitcher or jar and line it with cheesecloth. The coffee should be poured into the pitcher using a strainer. This will prevent the concentrate from becoming foggy if you do not stir the mixture. Remove the cheesecloth containing the coffee grounds after the mixture has been strained.
- Line the sieve with a big coffee filter once it has been cleaned and dried. Over a big measuring cup or jar, set it up to measure. Allow the coffee to freely drop into the container without stirring; do not use a stirrer. An hour or so is possible.
- For a maximum of three weeks, store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Mix 1 part cold brew concentrate with 1 part water or milk of choice to produce a cup of coffee.
- How to Store
Refrigerate the concentrated cold brew in an airtight container. It has a shelf life of three weeks, although the best flavor is achieved when consumed within ten days.
