This cold brew coffee recipe is easy to make in just a few minutes of hands on time: then just wait overnight! Here’s how to make cold brew coffee.


  • 1 1/2 cups ground coffee, medium coarse ground
  • 6 cups room temperature filtered water


  1. Grind 1 1/2 cups of dark roast coffee.
  2. Place the water in a large jar. Add the coffee grounds to the water. 
  3. Twist on the top. Mix by shaking the jar a few times.
  4. Refrigerate the cold brew coffee for 24 hours. 
  5. Place a strainer over a clean jar, and line it with a clean towel or cheesecloth. Strain the coffee into the clean jar. Discard all coffee grounds. Place the cold brew coffee back into the pitcher and refrigerate. 
  6. To serve, dilute 1/2 cup cold brew with 1/2 cup water. If you’re serving with ice, use 1/2 cup cold brew with 1/4 cup water and ice.
