How To Make Delicious Cold-Brew Coffee At Home

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good book and a warm cup of coffee or tea. But with summer’s arrival and the rising temperatures, there’s a chance you’re in search of a cold drink, instead. That’s why we’ve found a way to make delicious cold-brewed coffee at home, and it’s surprisingly simple!

Cold-brew coffee isn’t to be confused with iced coffee, the main difference being that cold-brewed coffee is never heated. Iced coffee is hot-brewed coffee poured over ice, which most of the time explains that bit of diluted taste you might experience. But you won’t have that problem with cold-brewed coffee, which also retains those caffeine spikes you adore. So grind, steep, and sieve your way to tasty, summertime cold-brewed coffee with this easy step-by-step guide from the Food52 blog!


  • Grinder
  • Coffee Beans
  • Glass Jar with a lid
  • Pitcher
  • Mesh Sieve with cheesecloth

STEP 1: Grind ¾ cup of coffee beans. The trick here is grinding the beans very coarsely.

STEP 2: In the glass jar, combine the ground beans with 4 cups of cold water. Stir gently.

STEP 3: Allow the mixture to steep at room temperature for 12 hours.

STEP 4: Place the sieve and cheesecloth over a pitcher. Pour the mixture into the pitcher to store.

This coffee concentrate stays fresh for up to two weeks. Add water, milk, cream, or sugar to taste, and enjoy!
