Archives For cold brew

I was spending so much money buying myself iced coffee, I ended up investing in a Toddy Cold Brew Coffee Maker.

After asking around at a few of my favorite coffee shops, I landed on the Meritage, which local roaster Cuvee calls the “the soul of Cuvée Coffee Roasting Company.”  They describe it as “sweet red fruit with a creamy body, malted chocolate & a spicy zinfandel finish.”  I think of it as all the flavor of carmel, without all the sugar.

Here’s how I make it.

You will need:

  1. Mix filtered water and course ground coffee at a ratio of 4 cups of water for ever 6 ounces.
  2. Cover and brew for 24 hours.
  3. Pop out the cork and let it filter.
  4. Cut it with water, at a minimum of a 1 to 1 ratio.
  5. Serve over ice on a hot afternoon.
If it’s already gotten cold where you’re at, try mixing the concentrate with hot water for the smoothest americano you’ve had in awhile.
