Make your very own cold brew coffee, easily, and stop throwing away at least $5/day at Starbuck’s!
Most of us enjoy a good cup of coffee, but when the weather gets hot, a glass of iced cold coffee is the way to go. But, keep in mind, when you make iced coffee, you make it a little different than you would cold coffee. Since you will be adding ice, you’ll need to make it stronger and this technique she uses with mason jars will make it just right!
Put this cold brew coffee maker filter onto a wide-mouth mason jar. It’s super straightforward. Let coffee grounds soak in a cold-water-filled mason jar for over twelve hours.
When you’re ready to get your caffeine dose, twist the filter onto that jar with the straw side down. Then twist the second mason jar on top of the filter. Flip. Shake. And watch your cold brew filter.
In case you haven’t made cold brew coffee, it’s smoother, less acidic, and it’s easier on your tummy, and teeth, too, than coffee brewed with heat. Less acidity also means you can better taste all the subtle flavors—like traces of chocolate, fruit, and nut inherent in different beans.
Even though coffee is usually a drink most grownups drink, a 16 yr old, Max Feber, came up with this clever idea. Watch how he does this in his step by step tutorial so you can make your own cold brew at home!
