Simple man’s cold brew
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.
100g responsibly sourced coffee beans, ground fine-medium (a bit coarser than espresso)
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.
