1. Add 12 scoops medium course grounds (scoop included)
2. Fill beaker half way with filtered water, stir grounds into water for about 35 seconds to saturate all the coffee
3. Fill remaining volume with filtered water leaving 1/2 inch room at the top
4. Place the bonus lid on french press and put in refrigerator for 12-24 hours depending on strength desired**
5. Once steeped for hours desired, remove lid and put filter lid on and press grounds to bottom of beaker
6. Mix coffee concentrate with water, either 1 parts concentrate to 2 parts water, or up to half concentrate and half H2O
I use 1/2 coffee concentrate, 1/2 milk over ice because I like it strong. My hubby prefers hot black coffee made with the concentrate and uses the half concentrate and half H2O ratio, then heats it in the microwave. We notice a definite absence of acid, which my husband prefers for taste reasons and I like because of taste and health reasons. When I am under stress, I have to take acid reduction pills for my stomach, being able to drink cold brew when under the gun has given me back my beloved cup of coffee without the stomach cramps.
TIP: Always use filtered water for cold brew since you will taste any and all funky flavors in your tap water. The water for cold brew doesn't get boiled so these flavors, which may disappear with boiling for hot coffee, are very present with cold brew.Read more ›
-Large Size - 1.5 Liter - I don't have to make 2 pots of press coffee with this size.
-2 tight fitting lids with rubber seals. The lids makes brewing cold in the fridge a snap; the coffee does not smell up the fridge or take on other odors.
-Glass Jug - Glass is best for brewing coffee hot or cold; it's easier to clean & odors don't cling. And no concerns about BPA or plastic flavor.
-Nice stainless press mechanism that comes apart for cleaning. I take it apart & run it through the dishwasher along with the glass jug. I put the plastic body through also with no problems.
-Pouring lever & spout
-Plastic body. I prefer stainless steel because the plastic may break over time. But, the plastic does seem to be a good quality & the colors are fun. I own other Bodum products; they are durable and well made.
FYI: If you already own a coffee press, you can use it to make cold brew too. However, this version has the added benefit of size & the tight fitting rubber seals on both the press mechanism lid & the extra serving/storage lid.
My recipe for cold brew:
I use a 4:1 ratio of water to ground coffee.
I put 4 cups of fresh cold water in the jug and add 1 cup COARSE ground coffee. Stir it, put the press mechanism/lid on & place in refrigerator for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.Read more ›
Next, I tried Pre-made cold-brewed coffee, but the shipping prices made that really expensive, and I really didn't like the taste. I tried a couple of the toddy type systems too, and while they work, I found one system was too messy and the filter often clogged. The Second system leaked out all over the fridge during the night.
But this works. Easy, no-mess, It doesn't leak, and the used grounds just rinse away when you've finished drinking the coffee. It is just a big french press, so If you already have one, you should use it, but this one is a great size, and seems very well made.
I find I like it best, after it's brewed overnight, but I think it's drinkable after 4 hours if you don't dilute it.
