Sim­ple man’s cold brew

The Simple Things - - | EATING WELL -

This is all about strip­ping cof­fee back to the essen­tials and us­ing equip­ment you al­ready have. Cold brew­ing re­duces the acid­ity of the cof­fee by over two-thirds, which makes it bet­ter for you.

Serves 4

100g re­spon­si­bly sourced cof­fee beans, ground fine-medium (a bit coarser than espresso)

to serve

75ml cold-brew cof­fee 190ml milk or cold water 1 tsp vanilla ex­tract 1 tbsp un­re­fined sugar

you will need

A large jar with a lid Muslin cloth or a nut milk bag

Place the ground cof­fee in a large jar and add 500ml cold water, pour­ing it in a cir­cu­lar mo­tion to make sure you cover all the grinds. Put the lid on and re­frig­er­ate overnight (or leave at room tem­per­a­ture for 5 hours).

Place sev­eral lay­ers of muslin over an­other jar (or use a nut milk bag) and strain the cof­fee. Store the black cof­fee in a jar in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To serve, di­vide the cof­fee into cups, add milk or water, vanilla, sugar and a tiny pinch of salt and stir well. Serve over ice, if pre­ferred.
