Our Favorite Way To Make Cold Brew Coffee At Home Is Simple And Easy.
DIY Cold Brew Guide
For a perfectly smooth and delicious cold brew coffee made at home, follow these steps prepared by our in-house Coffee Educator, Alex Conley.
Choose your favorite Lucky Goat Cold Brew Grinds, or grind your own beans coarsely. Mix ground coffee with room temperature water in a mason jar, and steep for 16-18 hours. We recommend starting with a ratio of 1 cup of grinds to 3 cups of water.
Strain your cold brew through a cheesecloth or a coffee filter-lined mesh strainer.
Pour over ice and enjoy! Add a splash of water or cream if needed.
Cold Brewing Tips
Follow these educator tips for the perfect at-home cold brew.
USE FILTERED WATER
Your coffee is 98% water, so using water that tastes good will make your coffee taste much better.
STEEP AT ROOM TEMPERATURE
Rather than using cold water, we recommend room temperature water for the best extractation. Refridgerate the brew only after straining out the grounds.
STIR THE GRINDS
Make sure to stir the grinds so that they're all equally saturated before leaving them to steep.
USE A FRENCH PRESS
For an extra easy setup, use a french press. Let it steep in the brewer, and simply press the plunger when it's ready! For more brewing advice check out our guide to all the different methods of brewing coffee at home.
