Does anyone here make cold brew coffee?
I’ve been experimenting and I’ve been wondering how other people do it.June 19, 2017 11:29 am at 11:29 am #1298881
I generally make hot coffee and then cool it in the fridge.June 19, 2017 11:46 am at 11:46 am #1298928
I tried Trader Joe’s. I didn’t like it. (It’s also expensive)
It’s not difficult to make. Put a lot of ground coffee in an empty jar with water. Let it sit overnight on the counter. Then pour through a coffeemaker with a filter. (Not on Shabbos – this would definitely be borer).June 19, 2017 11:51 am at 11:51 am #1298931
I’ve been doing that. It works fine but I’m looking for a more practical way to filter it. I don’t normally use a coffee maker so I don’t want to take it out just for this.
They sell bottles with built in filters special for this. I was just wondering if anyone has tried it.June 19, 2017 11:51 am at 11:51 am #1298933
Well, I don’t brew it myself (sorry for veering away from the question), but at the supermarket I found Califia Farms Concentrated Cold Brew (OU-Parve). Since it’s concentrated one has more control over serving strength.
They market non-concentrated varieties, as well.
SToK and some others also offer supermarket cold-brew varieties, though I think they’re OU-D.June 19, 2017 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1299583
You can also use the Melitta pour-over gizmo.June 19, 2017 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #1299626
I’ve tried using a melitta thing.
First problem is that it’s too small. I like making a week’s worth of coffee at once.
Also for some reason cold brew clogs up the filter pretty badly, so between that and the tiny hole in the cone it takes forever. They say you’re supposed to use a coarser grind, but I don’t grind my own coffee.June 19, 2017 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1299644
True caffeine addicts don’t need brewed coffee. Just eat some coffee beans or grounds, and chase it down with water (or the beverage of your choice).June 19, 2017 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #1299656
I actually like eating coffee beans, but I don’t know how many beans are the right dosage of caffeine.June 19, 2017 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #1299666
Can you make potent coffee ice cubes once a week, and then put them in a cup of room temperature water for go-to cold brew?June 19, 2017 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #1299701
Cold brew is not the same as iced coffee.June 19, 2017 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm #1299703

Which coffee do you use?June 19, 2017 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #1299710
Please describe the benefits of cold brew coffee in five sentences or less.June 19, 2017 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #1299731
I like making a week’s worth of coffee at once.
So take out the coffee maker. It’s only once a week, for crying out loud.June 19, 2017 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #1299732

It’s cold, it tastes smoother than heat brewed coffee, and can easily be made highly concentrated, which is useful for Shabbos, a quick cup of good coffee, and latte.June 20, 2017 12:24 am at 12:24 am #1299740
Which coffee do you use?
I use Folger’s
I would never use it for hot coffee but it’s not bad for cold brew, and I want to perfect the method before using good stuff.
Also I can’t get that stupid jingle out of my head.June 20, 2017 1:47 am at 1:47 am #1299760
Meno: Would you store the cold brew in the fridge all week?June 20, 2017 9:50 am at 9:50 am #1299914

That’s what I doJune 20, 2017 10:12 am at 10:12 am #1299939
Try Chock full o’Nuts (it’s that heavenly coffee…). I think it’s a coarser grind than Folgers. It also tastes better as hot coffee.June 20, 2017 10:58 am at 10:58 am #1300008
Use a regular pour-over coffee dripper to filter it.June 20, 2017 11:00 am at 11:00 am #1300041

Is that a regular one or a specific one?June 20, 2017 11:47 am at 11:47 am #1300087
I think it’s the most common one. I don’t think I’ve seen any other brandsJune 20, 2017 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #1300107

I make cold coffee all the time. Buy a french press. I bought mine from amazon for under 15.00. You measure the coffee same as for brewed coffee. put in cold water. Put in fridge for at least 48 hours. Just drink. The french press keeps the grinds out of the coffee, so there is no mess, no fuss. You can make a quart at a time.
