1. Insert filter into brewer and add 75g (about ¾ cup) ground coffee.

2. Add 630g water (about 2 and 2/3 cups) to the brewer’s reservoir.

3. In the coffee pot add 600g ice (about 2 and ½ cups if starting with water before freezing). If the brewer has a hot plate and it can be turned off be sure to toggle it off. We want the ice to melt and dilute the coffee as it brews.

4. Hit brew and wait. Do a crossword or a sudoku.

Cold brew at home is a great way to get a little of that cafe experience while also experimenting something a little different.

Here are three quick recipes you can make at home using concentrate made from any one of our four brew methods!

Instead of diluting cold brew concentrate with water try a 1:1 ratio with soda water. In cafes espresso tonics come in and out of popularity with the seasons, but few have espresso machines in their kitchens. Cold brew soda is both more accessible (very little equipment required) and uses soda water over tonic. Coffee is already a relatively bitter beverage and tonic adds more bitters in the form of quinine, so opting for soda water ups the effervesce without adding bitterness. 

In testing we found that we even liked a 1:2 or 1:3 ratio (coffee : water) for brighter, lighter roasted coffees. Just as adding a little water can help “open up” a nice whiskey the lower concentration of coffee allowed more subtle nuance to come through. For coffees roasted medium and darker a 1:1 was more ideal.

One last note: add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a cold brew float. Seriously. Everything you love about ice cream floats + coffee. You won’t regret it. 

Want something a little sweeter? This drink is like cardamom coffee ice creamThe sweetened condensed milk and sugar make for a nice foam when shaken together cocktail style.  

  • 2oz cold brew concentrate
  • 1oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp raw sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom* 

Combine all ingredients in a mason jar or cocktail shaker with 4-5 ice cubes and shake until frosty and frothy, about 20-30 seconds. Yields 1 ~8oz beverage. 

*Can’t find cardamom? Replace cardamom with equal parts cinnamon or cocoa powder. 

Miele means honey in Italian and with the help of a quick honey syrup you can make an iced honey latte with cold brew standing in for espresso.  

  • 2oz honey simple syrup
  • 3oz cold brew concentrate
  • cinnamon
  • Milk of choice 

Fill glass with ice. Pour your milk of choice into the glass, leaving room for honey and cold brew. Add cold brew and honey simple. Finish with a dash of cinnamon on top. Stir and enjoy. 

Honey simple recipe 

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup warm water   

Mix honey and warm water. Can be stored in the refrigerator or on the counter. (Also, makes a great sweetener for tea, vinaigrettes, and cocktails!)
