Great for sensitive tummies!

Cold Brew Coffee tends to be lower in acidity that hot brewed coffee, so this was great given the stomach issues many of our meds can give us Spoonies. Plus, I love that its technically a "MAKE AHEAD" recipe. I make it on a Monday and it keeps in the refrigerator for about 5 days, so I can wake up and get to my much needed morning cup of coffee with very little thought... or coherence.

We all know mornings are a struggle when you're flarin'!

EZ Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

Makes 10 servings of concentrate = 5 days of coffee for 2 people!


SPOONIE TIP: Once you have the jar and filter the only cost is the coffee. It comes together in 5 minutes so if you do it early evening, its ready to go for you in the morning! 


𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬:

  • 6 ounces COARSE ground coffee, darker blends are better

  • 6 cups cold or room temp (preferably filtered) water


Tools (Links below):

  • 1 wide mouth, 64oz ball jar (under $5 at Target.com)

  • 1 re-usable cold brew filter (around $12 on Amazon)

  • 1- kitchen scale


𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐝:

  1. Weight out your coffee and pour it into the filter which is set inside the ball jar.

  2. Pour the pre-measured water over it.

  3. Refrigerate for 8-12 hours. (Make it at night before you go to bed.)

  4. In the morning, pull out the filter. We like to pour the cold brew into a plastic pitcher with a spout that helps measuring it out for each cup easier.


TO MAKE YOUR COFFEE IN THE MORNING:


  1. Combine 1/2 cup of cold brew concentrate and 1/2-3/4 cup cold water, depending on how strong a flavor you like. I tend to do 1/3 cup. 


***You can add in your creamer or sweetener too. Play around with how much water if you also want ice, but I've never felt I needed it since the coffee is cold out of the fridge.
