French Press Cold Brew


Perfect French press cold brew. If you're wondering how to make cold brew coffee at home, try this easy recipe with a coffee-to-water ratio that is just right. I prefer to drink the cold brew with unsweetened soy milk.

Prep Time:
5 mins
Additional Time:
16 hrs
Total Time:
16 hrs 5 mins


  • 4 ounces coarsely ground coffee beans

  • 2 cups filtered water, at room temperature


  1. Pour ground coffee into a French press container and add water. Place plunger lid on top and press the plunger down 1 to 2 inches to make sure all coffee grounds are fully submerged; do not press all the way down. Let coffee steep at room temperature for 16 to 18 hours.

  2. Strain coffee through a coffee filter in a small strainer. Transfer to an airtight bottle or jar and keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.

To Serve:

Fill a glass with ice and add equal parts of cold brew and water or milk.
