We’re living in the age of Instagram, so you’ve most probably seen thousands of pictures of cold brew coffee. While you might think that this is just another hipster craze, we guarantee cold brew is definitely worth a shot, especially if you’ re a fan of in-depth flavors. Besides, it’s not rocket science to prepare it and you probably already have everything you need in the kitchen. So why not give it a try? We recommend Jamie Oliver’s famous cold brew. Here’s how to do it:
1. Set your grinder to the roughest setting and test a little bit before doing the whole batch. Keep in mind that the resulted powder needs to be pretty coarse, with a similar size to breadcrumbs. Any finer than that and you risk some getting into the final brew and ruining its taste.
2. Sterilize a mason jar or any glass container that has a lid and place the ingredients. You’ll need to have a ratio of about 1:8 coffee-to-cold-water. Stir gently until the mixture becomes homogenous, then place the lid and let it steep for 18-24 hours, ideally in the fridge.
3. When brewed, use a sieve to filter the impurities out while pouring the content into a large bowl. Repeat several times until no residue remains on the bottom. Don’t worry if you’re left with a cloudy brew, that means the beans were too finely ground. You’ll get it next time! 😊
That’s it! You now have a wonderful cold brew, rich in deep sweet flavors. Enjoy it with plenty of ice, milk, and sugar to your liking. On top of that, thanks to its low acidity, you can store it in the fridge for more than one month and, if you brew a strong enough mix, you can even mix it with hot water without losing the taste.
So, what do you think? Will you give it a try or is it a pass this time? You can try it out first in one of the closest specialty coffee shops, and then venture to make your own. Don’t forget to check Goffee for more comprehensive info on all types of coffee drinks and brews out there.
