How to Make Cold Brew Coffee: Howdini Hacks

The first
step is grinding. Keep things coarse to avoid
cloudy, silty coffee and use a 1/3 cup grounds to 1 1/2 cups water ratio. Pour this into
a large container. Gradually add cold water. Cooling down hot
coffee creates greater acidity, so herein lies the beauty of a true cold brew! Gently stir to make sure all of the grounds
are moistened. Take it easy, you don’t want to agitate the coffee too much, which can
increase acidity. Cover and let stand at room temperature or
in the fridge for about 12 hours. Get things ready in the evening for fresh coffee by morning. To drain, line the opening of a container
with a nut milk bag, or a coffee filter-lined colander. Cheesecloth works great too. Carefully pour coffee through the sieve into
a pitcher, stopping when you reach the solids at the bottom. This might take a few minutes so while we
wait, here’s a few more reasons why cold-brew is so awesome: Discard the grounds (which are great for your
compost pile) and repeat if needed. Keep in mind this stuff is strong, so be sure
to dilute with lots of ice, milk, water, or all of the above! Thanks for watching! For other great tips
