Cold Brew Almond Milk Latte

Cold brew coffee is 70% less acidic than hot-brewed coffee, and can be made with minimal equipment. Note that this recipe makes a coffee concentrate--to serve, you'll want to dilute it with equal parts almond or non-dairy milk (or with water).

Yield: 3 cups, 6 servings

  • 1 cup coarse-ground organic coffee beans
  • 4 cups water
  • Almond Milk, to serve

Equipment

  • coffee grinder
  • half-gallon size mason jar (or 2 quart-size jars)
  • mesh bag (nut-milk bag)
  • medium bowl

Put the coffee and water in a half-gallon size mason jar, stir, and screw on the lid. Put the jar in the refrigerator for 12-16 hours.

Strain the coffee mixture through a mesh bag. Discard the coffee grounds left in the bag.

Transfer the cold-brewed coffee to sealed jars and store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

To serve, dilute 4 ounces of cold-brewed coffee with 4 ounces of almond milk or other non-dairy milk. For a totally smooth almond milk latte, strain the mixture of cold brew and almond milk through a mesh nut-milk bag without squeezing the bag--this will get rid of any remaining particles in the almond milk and cold brew.

This looks amazing, how do you get the froth on the top like in the picture?
Ps. I’m so glad to know cold-brewed coffee is less acidic, that is going to be my new way I drink coffee smile

Hi Leann,

This is just a photo of a coffee drink smile) With the almond latte, you don’t need to froth the milk, since the drink is cold or room temp—just mix the milk in and it will be great!

Maybe a dumb question or I’m missing something but why do we need a half-gallon size mason jar (or 2 quart-size jars) when we are brewing 1-cup of coffee grinds with 4-cups of water? Should I be topping it off with something…more water or almond milk?

Hi Suanne,

The reason we need a 2-quart jar, is that 4 cups water plus 1 cup coffee=5 cups, which is too much mixture to fit in a 1-quart (or 4 cup) jar.

So you’ll have extra room in there, but that’s OK.

After you drain the cold brew the next day, you can top of your serving with water, or with almond milk, which is how I like it.

Thanks for this simple explanation, I had heard something like this but was never quite clear how to do it.  Love your site (and your DVD!).
