What are the best coffees to use for cold brew?
Your Favorite Coffee! We enjoy either our Ethiopian Haarar or Cold Brew blend! A well-balanced blend like our Cold Brew Blend is another great option for something complex and sweet that can be enjoyed on its own or stand up to milk and sugar.
How long does Cold Brew last after making it?
7-10 days refrigerated. If your cold brew starts to taste off, Its better to start with a fresh batch.
Do I need to keep Cold Brew refrigerated after making it?
How long should I let my Cold Brew steep for?
16 hours in the fridge is our sweet spot or 7 hours at room temperature. Anywhere from 14-18 is fine. Anything over 20 hours your will start to pick up a woody unpleasant taste.
What grind should I use for Cold Brew?
Coarse, like you would grind for a french press.
Can I make Cold Brew with decaf beans?
YES!! Coming soon our Peru decaf
I don’t have room in my fridge - do I have to leave the Filtron/brewer in the fridge while it’s brewing, like the instructions say?
Nope! Room temp is fine, but you want to get the cold brew in a fridge as soon as it’s done filtering to get it cold as quickly as possible. Creating an ice bath and letting whatever vessel you filtered into swim around in there expedites the cooling process rapidly.
What should the coffee to water ratio be?
12 ounces of coffee (that’s one bag of our Cold Brew coffee blend) to 64 ounces of water is a good place to start to yield cold brew concentrate. You can then cut 1:1 with water, milk, or cream when you are ready to drink. That should yield you a little under a gallon of cold brew, which gives you 12 ounces of cold brew a day for 10 days!
Should I filter the water I use to make Cold Brew?
Yes! Cold Filter water is best. Coffee is 97% water so even when making hot coffee try and use filter water.
If I’m not using a toddy or other device with a built in filter, what are my options?
French press just like you would hot coffee, but instead of plunging after 4 minutes, plunge after 16 hours. Then pour that through a paper coffee filter (chemex, v60, kalita, melitta, whatever) to polish it off.
