    Does anyone here make cold brew coffee?

    I’ve been experimenting and I’ve been wondering how other people do it.

    I generally make hot coffee and then cool it in the fridge.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    You can also use the Melitta pour-over gizmo.

    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.

    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).

    I actually like eating coffee beans, but I don’t know how many beans are the right dosage of caffeine.

    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?

    Cold brew is not the same as iced coffee.

    Which coffee do you use?

    So take out the coffee maker. It’s only once a week, for crying out loud.

    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.

    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.

    Meno: Would you store the cold brew in the fridge all week?

    That’s what I do

    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.

    Use a regular pour-over coffee dripper to filter it.

    Is that a regular one or a specific one?

    I think it’s the most common one. I don’t think I’ve seen any other brands

    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.
