What is cold brewed coffee and what are the benefits?
When brewed with cold water, tannin and caffeine do not easily effuse. You can enjoy most coffee free of bitter or astringent taste.
What coffees are good for cold brewing?
Generally, blends that are light and medium roasts makes great cold brew coffee, but there are a few dark roast coffees that makes for amazing cold brewed coffees.
01Measure & Grind
Measure and grind 250 grams of freshly roasted coffee beans to the consistency of coarse sea salt.
Peet's tip: 250 grams is just over a half-pound of coffee. A finer grind will cause over-extraction during the brewing process.
02Prepare & Brew
Add ground coffee to the cold brewer filter and then slowly pour in 1 liter of cold, freshly filtered water. Allow the grounds to bloom for at least 30 seconds. Then carefully pour in the remaining ¼ liter (250 ml) of fresh, cold water.
Peet's tip: Use the back of a spoon or whisk to gently push any dry grounds below the surface of water until all of the grounds are saturated.
Let the coffee brew for a minimum of 12 hours. You can brew at room temperature or in your refrigerator.
Lift the filter and let the cold brew concentrated drain completely before discarding the grounds.
To serve, dilute 1 part cold brew concentrate with 2 parts cold water. Adjust the strength to your taste.
Although it takes a lot of ground coffee to fill the filter along with 12 hours to brew in the refrigerator, the results are worth it! This produces a coffee free of bitterness.
I had lost the instructions and was able to easily find clear, step by step instructions with photos online.
After having a real full-sized toddy brewing system ($30 from Amazon), I couldn't have been more disappointed with this product. I bought it for a girls weekend, thinking it would be the perfect travel sized toddy brewer. It was a mess from the beginning. The directions were VERY poorly written and devoid of any useful information, complete with grammatical and typographical errors. When the three of us failed to understand the poorly sketched diagrams, I thought...well, how difficult can it be to just figure it out? There was no way to measure the grounds, it was impossible to figure out how to close the flimsy rubber lid. In the end, the toddy I brewed was extremely weak even though I filled the basket with grounds, and added what I thought was the appropriate amount of water. I actually threw this entire thing in the garbage, deciding it was not worth packing it back home with me, and the pound of freshly roasted and ground Peet's I ordered was all but wasted, as there was not enough grounds left to make a proper batch of toddy in my Amazon system. I am a faithful Peetnick but this product is complete garbage and I'm disappointed even after I let the company know several months ago, they are still selling it and at a still-inflated price.
Love my cold brewed coffee. And this bottle makes the very best. No bitter coffee face. Just yummy coffee. I'm thinking of making homemade cold brewed coffee ice cream. Oh Yeah!
