The Best Cold Brew Coffee

The perfect cold brew for a hot day.

Cold Brew Coffee

I make this recipe extra-easy by brewing before I go to bed at night in my 4-cup french press and just pressing first thing in the morning. I’ll just go ahead and admit that I buy my coffee pre-ground and it works great. A standard grind is fine, but look for one — or grind yourself — a little on the coarse side of standard. Use a coffee you like, and you may be surprised how much more you like it when you brew this way. I like a strong, small cup, and that’s what this brew yields when served with a generous splash of milk. You can treat it like a concentrate and dilute it with cold filtered water to taste without any loss of quality.
