aka toddy coffee
how to make coldbrew coffee:
supplies: mason jar, bowl, coffee grounds, water, metal sieve, coffee filter, funnel
1/4c-1/3c course ground coffee (remember: good beans=good coffee)
1 1/2c room temperature water
put coffee and water in jar, stir with spoon until combined, put on lid, and let it sit. 3 hours minimum, but overnight for best flavor
in the morning, put sieve in bowl. open jar, pour coffee gunk through the sieve into the bowl.
discard coffee grounds (good for garden and compost!)
rinse out mason jar really well. put funnel in top of mason jar, put coffee filter in funnel. pour coffee from the bowl, through the coffee filter and into the mason jar. let it sit and filter through.
when it’s done, remove filter and funnel, cap jar and put in fridge until you are ready to use.
if you are ready, pour over ice, and add water or creamer, sip and enjoy.
want it hot? okay! add hot water. want it strong? don’t add any water! drink it straight!
