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
- 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.
