How To Make Cold Brew Coffee


It’s June in Texas, which means my wife just made me my first mason jar full of cold brew coffee.

Cold-brewed coffee is actually dirt simple to make at home….But you can also bang it out with a Mason jar and a sieve. You just add water to coffee, stir, cover it and leave it out on the counter overnight. A quick two-step filtering the next day (strain the grounds through a sieve, and use a coffee filter to pick up silt), a dilution of the brew one-to-one with water, and you’re done. Except for the time it sits on the kitchen counter, the whole process takes about five minutes.

Bonus: recipe for New Orleans Cold Drip coffee.

This is also the season for cold-brew iced tea. Same method, folks. Just sayin’.
