Equipment

  • Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Ingredients
  

  • 100 grams ground coffee coarse grind size
  • 32 fl. oz filtered water at room temperature

Instructions
 

  • Add 100 grams of coarse grounds to the filter. 
  • Pour some water in the nylon filter to wet through the coffee grounds before steeping the coffee grounds into the pitcher. You can flush out some of the fine grinds. 
  • Fill 32 ounces of water into the pitcher. There will be about 1.7 inches from the top rim. Don't fill the water to the rim. The displacement from the coffee grounds will push the water out. 
  • Put the filter in the water and screw the lid. Put it into the fridge, and let it sit for 24 hours. The magic of cold brewing is not going to happen right away. 
  • In the middle of the brewing process (after 12 hours), take it out and gently shake it to mix the coffee grounds. 
  • After 24 hours, take it out and enjoy. Serve the coffee as needed and store the rest of coffee in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

  • We suggest 1 part of coffee with 1 part of water or milk for serving. However, you decide how strong the coffee you like. 
  • Coffee is stronger than drink-ready coffee. However, in the 1:9 coffee to water ratio, the brewed coffee is not very concentrated. We usually make cold brew with a 1:4 ratio. However, the water is not enough to soak the coffee grounds in the filter within the pitcher. 
  • You will notice that there is a lot less liquid in the pitcher. When you take the filter with the coffee grounds out of it, only 60% of the coffee is left in the pot because the coffee absorbs those water. 
  • Unlike paper filters, the nylon mesh can't catch all the fine particles. There's also still a lot of fine dust at the bottom of the pitcher. If you don't like the muddy mouthfeel, don't pour the last drop into your cup. You can leave 10% of the coffee at the bottom. If you want to regain more coffee, you can filter the last 10% of coffee with a paper filter. After using the paper, the coffee is fairly clean but still very dark.
