This blend consists of Central American and African coffees to introduce the flavors that stand out in a beautiful iced drink.
Look for notes of chocolate, berries, grape, floral notes, and intense sweetness.
Cold brew is the summer favorite! It’s low maintenance, high caffeine way of making iced coffee.
You are making a coffee concentrate so be sure to cut this with water before drinking.
We recommend a 1:1 ratio of concentrate to water. We all have a different tolerance so start low.
Tools You’ll Need
-Toddy vessel, bucket, or pot
-Fine strainer or nut bag
-12 oz bag of very coarsely ground coffee
1. Measure out 7 cups of water and pour it into a vessel of choice.
2. Fill the fine mesh bag with a 12oz coarsely ground coffee and submerge in water.
3. Leave submerged on the counter for at least 12hrs but can sit for up to 24hrs.
4. After the desired brew time, pull the bag or strain the liquid making sure no grounds are left in it.
