  • Line a fine-mesh strainer with a coffee filter and place over a medium bowl. Slowly pour coffee mixture through the filter. Do not force it through. Discard grounds and rinse out pitcher.

  • Pour filtered coffee concentrate back into the clean pitcher. Place in the refrigerator.

  • Boil water and sugar together until sugar is completely dissolved. Cool simple syrup and transfer to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

  • Pour 3 ounces of coffee concentrate into a Mason jar or cup. Top with 3 ounces water. Add desired amount of simple syrup and ice.

Cook's Note:

To keep your drink from getting watered down by ice cubes, brew a pot of regular coffee and pour into an ice cube tray. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours. No diluted coffee!

Do yourself a favour and mix by weight using an 8:1 water:coffee ground ratio (i.e 800g water for 100g coffee). Going by weight ratio makes it super-easy to adjust to make just the right amount of concentrate. For the easiest cleanup I use a bowl with a spout for the steeping process and filter it into a Chemex brewer. The ground of your coffee also matters a lot for cold-brewing. Use a coarse grind as for a French press for best results. Read More

I've been making this for a couple of years now. I absolutely love it. I prefer my coffee poured over ice with milk. No sweetener. Read More
