Having hot uncomfortable nights? Feeling groggy in the morning and need a cold refreshing pick-me up? Have a go at making cold brew coffee, it's easier then you might think.
Coffee is the ideal drink to kickstart your brain into action in the morning. However, when the temperature is high and air is heavy it seems illogical to have a hot drink. Ice coffee is the perfect substitute, it provides a caffeine hit and chills the body.
Cold brew coffee is the process in using fresh, cold water to brew your ground coffee. It's said to produce a smoother taste and can be heated up or used for ice coffee. Below we've listed out the simple steps involved. Give it a go and let us know how you get on.
Time needed: 5 minutes, plus overnight brewing time
- Open the mason jar, insert coffee filter.
- Pour fresh coffee grounds into the filter. We recommend 2 coffee measures for a 1 quart jar.
- Pour in the cold water all the way to the top of the jar. Make sure the coffee filter is submersed in the water.
- Attached lid of mason jar to provide an air-tight seal.
- Place in the fridge overnight.
Once you wake up in the morning you should have a freshly brewed jar of ice-cold, wake-me-up coffee. You can then add a Cuppow Lid and take with you to work. Or just transfer the cold brew coffee into your JOCO Cup, add milk or sugar as preferred.
The summer mornings will have never tasted so good. Enjoy.
