Coffee Making Essentials
Cold Foam Cold Brew Recipe Below!
I make my cold brew for the week on Sunday and it lasts throughout the week. This saves so much time and it’s nice having coffee ready as soon as I wake up. Making homemade cold brew is easier than you would think. You essentially blend up some coffee beans and soak them in water for 12-24 hours.
As far as ratios are concerned, I like soaking 1 cup of freshly blended coffee to 4 cups of filtered water. You can either do this in a cold brew pitcher or any container with a clamp lid. If you just use a random container, you’ll need a coffee filter to strain the cold brew.
When the cold brew is ready, it stays good in the fridge for 5 days. I use 1 part coffee to 1 part water, but you can dilute it to your preference. When you’re ready to drink it, get the cold foam ready! The cold foam is literally just almond milk, agave nectar, and a pinch of sea salt all frothed together with this amazing gadget. You can use skim milk instead of almond milk, but don’t use full-fat milk; it doesn’t froth as well.
- Cold Brew:
- 1 Cup Good Quality Light Roast Whole Coffee Beans
- 4 Cups Filtered Water
- Cold Foam:
- 1/2 cup skim milk (this froths the best)
- 1 tbsp Agave Nectar or Brown Sugar
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Cold Brew:
- Blend the whole coffee beans into a coarse texture. Don't blend too much or the coffee will be bitter.
- Add blended coffee to a container and cover with 4 cups of water.
- Let it sit at room temperature for a minimum of 12 hours but up to 24 hours.
- Strain the coffee and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
- Enjoy or serve with cold foam.
- Cold Foam:
