I’ve mentioned before that I have a love affair with coffee. It is something I just
can’t err won’t give up! I was once a very heavy coffee drinker but after having a few babies I’ve cut back to one cup a day. I LOVE my daily cup of joe! This summer I’ve been enjoying homemade cold brew coffee sweetened with maple syrup and a splash of raw cream. It is heavenly! Today I’m sharing my method for making cold brew using a French press. If you don’t have a French press you can use a half-gallon jar and cheesecloth to make your cold brew. Enjoy!

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee
- French Press or Half Gallon Jar & Cheesecloth
- 2 Cups Organic Coffee
- 4 Cups Filtered Water
- Pour 2 cups of freshly ground coffee into french press or mason jar. Add water and stir the coffee grounds. Cover with french press top or mason jar lid and allow the mix to sit at room temperature for 12 – 24 hours.
- If you’re using a french press simply press the coffee and pour it into container. If you’re using a jar then you will need to strain the coffee grounds through a cheesecloth lined mesh strainer.
- Store coffee in refrigerator until you’re ready to use it. This recipe makes strong coffee. You may want to dilute it with water or milk. Add maple syrup, simple syrup, cream, homemade creamer or whatever additions you like.
