Cold Press Coffee
Servings: 3 cups
Note: For most recipes you can adjust the measures for more or less servings by hovering over the servings number and moving the slider.
- 2/3 cups coffee beans ground (about 9 tablespoons ground coffee)
- 3 cups filtered water at room temperature
- maple syrup
- milk or cream non-dairy milk works great too!
In a 4 or 8-cup French press add ground coffee beans and water. Stir the coffee and water together until well mixed.
Place the French press plunger on top (but don't press it down) and refrigerate for 12 hours. If you like a stronger taste you can experiment with letting the coffee brew for up to 24 hours.
Slowly press the plunger down to push all the coffee grounds to the bottom.
Use immediately or pour cold press into a covered container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
We recommend using organic ingredients when possible.
I try to stir up the grounds into the water at least one additional time after putting the French press in the refrigerator.
If you like your coffee on the not-so-strong side, cut back the amount of coffee by as much as half.
