Cold Brew Coffee: the easy recipe for a cool, refreshing coffee 

Total time: 15 Min + Steeping time
Difficulty: Low
Serves: 6 people
By Cookist

Coffee lovers adore an ice-cold glass of cold brew on a hot summer's day. Unlike iced coffee, which is made by hot-brewing coffee and pouring it over ice, cold brew is made by steeping coffee grounds in water overnight. This process is gentler, giving cold brew coffee an amazing, rich flavor that's not as bitter as traditionally prepared coffee.

No need for any fancy equipment – all you need is a couple of large jars! Cold brew coffee is ideal to make ahead and enjoy throughout the week for a refreshing caffeinated pick-me-up when the temperatures rise.


Use high-quality coffee beans for the best flavor.

Enjoy your cold brew over ice.

Add any milk you like. Regular, plant-based, or even condensed milk can be added to your cold brew coffee.

Flavored syrups like almond, vanilla, caramel, coconut, or pumpkin spice are delicious additions to cold brew coffee.

How to Store Cold Brew Coffee

Keep your cold brew coffee in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to one week.
