How to Cold Brew Coffee Using a Mason Jar
What you’ll need:
There are those among us who like to dip their toes in the water before they jump right into the pool. Cold brewing with a mason jar is synonymous to the toe dip. This method will allow you to get an idea of how cold brewed coffee tastes without any risk of spending money on a product that you might not enjoy. This is by far the easiest method to make delicious cold brewed coffee with materials most people should have around their kitchen.
NOTE: Coffee brewed this way may be stronger then you are used to. Try it straight and then dilute the coffee to your liking. To brew a really strong cup of iced coffee, you need about a 1:4 ratio of coffee to water. Regular hot coffee calls for a 1:16 ratio, but iced coffee is stronger – because it’s better. My favorite is an iced cold brewed coffee at a 1:4 ratio of coffee to nice cold milk. Incredibly refreshing and tastes delicious!
The resulting cold brew was silky smooth and full bodied, which allowed for the rich chocolate notes of the coffee to come through even with the addition of milk!
