5 Cold Brew Coffee Recipes

Cold brew coffee is often confused with iced coffee. Iced coffee is hot coffee brewed the standard way and then poured over ice. Cold brew coffee is, as the name suggests, brewed with cold water.

So, why bother with cold brew coffee? Well, it makes a perfect base for some delicious drinks! Below you will find five recipes that are perfect for summer drinks!

How to Make the Cold Brew Coffee
Although you can buy cold brew coffee makers, it’s really not necessary – your standard home espresso machine or drip coffee maker will work just fine. Using a coarse grind of coffee and a ratio of 1:4 (coffee to cold water) brew your coffee. You can add more coffee for a sharper taste – remember that you need more coffee to water than you would for a hot brew so consider how much coffee you would normally use.

Leave it to stand for 12-24 hours and there you have it!
