  • The taste of a freshly brewed cup of cold coffee made from the finest ground coffee beans is a refreshingly delightful experience. It is so good you cannot even compare it to a tasteful cup of traditional cold ice coffee on a hot summery day when a cooling beverage is necessary to perk you up and beat the heat. This is because the brewing process for cold coffee is not the same way iced coffee is. You can learn how to make cold brew coffee yourself by learning the cold brew coffee method.

    How to Make Cold Brew Coffee Method

    The method for making cold coffee begins with placing coffee grinds into the bottom of a large glass jar or pitcher with ice-cold water filling up the jar or pitcher the rest of the way. Next, the pitcher of ingredients goes directly into the refrigerator where it brews up cold coffee, which takes approximately an entire 24-hour. After, the brewing process the coffee grinds are strained from the cold brewed coffee and served up cold as it is, or over ice with some milk and sugar. With this method, you achieve a less watery coffee with a fuller sweeter flavor. Once you have a cup of this coffee, learning how to make cold brew coffee at home will become your new mission.

    Iced Coffee vs. Cold Brew Coffee

    The iced coffee method creates a watered down beverage that is not as delightful tasting as cold coffee. This is because freshly brewed hot coffee is poured over ice, which melts it down creating a watery flavored beverage. Then, the milk, cream, sugar or honey is added to help enhance the flavor, but doing this also takes away even more coffee flavor. This is why cold coffee is becoming more and more popular, and why more and more people want to learn how to make cold brew coffee themselves.

    Cold Brew Coffee

    If you desire to learn how to make your own cold brew coffee at home you will need:

    • 2-quart pitcher or jar
    • Favorite bag of coffee grounds
    • 1 ½ quarts freshly filtered water
    • Fine mesh strainer and large coffee filter
    • Clean pitcher for pouring the cold coffee into
    • Large spoon for mixing
    • Sweetener of choice such as honey, nectar or table sugar
    • Milk or cream
    • Plenty of ice
    • Serving cups

    How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home

    Step One

    Begin making the coffee by adding 2-cups of coffee grounds to the 2-quart container of choice. For a fresher more flavorful brew, grind your own coffee beans at home and use those grounds instead.

    Step Two

    Add in 1 ½ quarters of freshly filtered water into the 2-quart container with the coffee grounds. After, combine the ingredients together with the large mixing spoon, place a lid or plastic wrap over the pitcher of ingredients and put the pitcher in the refrigerator for 24-hours to brew up cold coffee. As you can see so far, the steps on how to make cold brew coffee at home are simple.

    Step Three

    Place the fine mesh strainer with the large coffee filter inside of it over a clean pitcher. Now, grab the brew from the refrigerator and carefully strain and filter the coffee grounds from it slowly until you end up with a pitcher of coffee.

    Step Four

    Serve the cold coffee up in the serving cups over ice with the sweetener of choice, and milk or cream if desired. You can also serve the coffee up as is if that is what you prefer.After all, this is your cold coffee experience. See learning how to make cold brew coffee was simple, and by now you should know that it is completely different than ice coffee.

  • Flavored Iced Coffee

    Flavored Iced Coffee What's your favorite flavor? Photo: Jo

    Flavored coffee has become increasingly popular over the years, particularly flavored iced coffee. It may have become your warm weather coffee choice or perhaps you enjoy it year round. Flavored coffee is what the majority of national chain coffee shops are selling. It’s rare that someone in line is ordering a plain cup of brew. Often mixed in are milk, flavoring, ice and sweetener. Every addition increases the price. Iced coffee drinks are well loved because of their sweet creamy taste and their refreshing effect any time of day. You may enjoy yours in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up. Flavored iced coffee is easy and very convenient to make in your kitchen for a fraction of the price a coffee shop would charge you and you don’t have to leave home to get it!

    Flavored coffee can be made by either flavoring the beans themselves or adding flavor to already prepared coffee.

    Flavored coffee beans are made by introducing flavor oils during the roasting process. Once the beans have cooled slightly the oils are added. If the beans are too hot it could destroy the flavor compounds. The oils can have flavor from natural or synthetic sources, or a combination of both. Because of coffee’s complex flavor profile, it can take a combination of over 70 flavor profiles to compliment it. Compare that to the process of complimenting food flavors that takes just a fraction of that -10 or less! When you grind and brew the beans, the flavor is extracted along with the coffee flavor.

    Adding flavor to your unflavored brewed coffee is another way to get your favorite iced coffee flavor profile into your cup. If you ever wanted to try to make your own flavored iced coffee cup at home look for things you may already have in your kitchen or are easy to find at your local market. Ingredients like vanilla or almond extract, chocolate hazelnut spread, brown sugar, chocolate syrup, cocoa powder, condensed milk or hazelnut syrup. You can even put all your ingredients into a blender with ice and make a frosty creamy delicious coffee drink for a fraction of the price of the coffee shop.

    You can get a tremendous amount of variety making iced coffee at home when you make your own flavors. Once you start to get creative with all your homemade iced coffee recipes you will never be stuck in line at a coffee shop again.
