A Guide to Making Cold Brew

If simplicity is your thing, then cold brew coffee might be right up your alley. It’s hands down one of the easiest ways to brew coffee, allows several serves to be made per batch and is near impossible to mess up! It’s possible to brew all styles of coffee as cold brew, from espresso blends to filter roasts depending on the intensity of flavour and complexity you’re after. 

The one drawback of cold brew? Unlike most other brew methods, several hours of steeping are required for extraction! This means preparation is key to avoid the dreaded disappointment of not having a brew ready to go in the morning :( On the plus side, you can keep it in the fridge for a couple of days after brewing while still at its best!

Our guide to make the tastiest cold brew possible will make those hot summer days just that little bit better! 

You will need:

  • Jug
  • Filter Basket
  • Scales / Timer

Our Coffee Recommendation:

Coffee To Water Ratio - 1:16 


  1. Grind beans as course as possible 
  2. Pour grinds into basket
  3. Begin filling jug slowly which wetting the coffee as thoroughly as possible
  4. Be careful to contain coffee within the filter or screen to minimise fine particles when serving
  5. Feel free to stop water flow and swirl vicariously to achieve this
  6. Fill jug to desired level and allow to steep for 10 hours
  7. Remove coffee from jug, keep refrigerated and serve over ice
