How to Make Cold Brewed Coffee


Coffee drinkers who find themselves doing the bitter coffee face may prefer cold-brew coffee instead of that traditional-brewed cup of joe. Because the grinds never come into contact with hot water, the cold-brew coffee has a much smoother, sweeter flavor. This recipe yields approximately 2 cups of cold-brewed coffee.
