Homemade Cold Brew Coffee

Who needs Dunkin's when you can make your own cold brew right at home? It's simple, quick, and SO DAMN GOOD.
Prep Time 5 mins
"Brew" Time (Minimum) 12 hrs
Course Drinks
Servings 8 cups


  • cheese cloth, strainer, or nut milk bag


  • 2 cups Coarsely ground coffee (Or adjust per desired strength. I'm using a 1:4 ratio (ground coffee to water).
  • 8 cups Water filtered or well water for best flavor


  • Grind the coffee beans. They should be the consistency of granulated sugar or even coarser is fine too. (This helps you strain them out easily.) 2 cups of whole beans yields about 1 cup of ground coffee.
  • Once your coffee is ground, add to the bottom of a pitcher.
  • Measure your water and pour into the pitcher over your ground coffee.
  • Let it steep in the fridge for at least 12 hours or longer/overnight.
  • Strain out coffee grinds. I use a nut milk bag for this because it ensures all grinds are removed, leaving nothing but magical liquid.
