How to Make Cold Brewed Coffee

Save

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.

Things You'll Need

  • Large pitcher
  • 2 cups medium-grind coffee
  • 3 1/2 cups room-temperature filtered water
  • Fine-mesh strainer
  • Coffee filter
