Summer Drink Specials
Summer Recipe: Cold Brew Coffee at Home
Cold brew coffee made at home is easy, rewarding, and more affordable than alternatives. Plus, it’s less acidic, versatile, and lasts in your fridge for up to two weeks. The concentrate can also be used in baking, syrups/sauces, or in milkshakes (yum!).
to do it…..
1. Coarsely grind 3 cups (or just over 1/2 a pound) of Fara Espresso beans.
2. Fill your CoffeeSock with the grinds and moisten them for a ‘bloom.’
3. Secure the neck of the sock with the string and insert into 64oz Mason Jar.
4. Fill the jar with cold, filtered water and let steep for 12-18 hours.
5. Remove sock (let drain at lip of jar) and voila, you’ve got a delicious cold brew concentrate.
6. Mix (about 1:3) with water, milk, or milk alternatives to your desired strength.
