Cold Brew Coffee

This is a super easy recipe for making Cold Brew Coffee in a blender. Like with all cold brew coffees, you will have to steep it overnight, but then you have coffee for days!

Cold Brew Coffee

If you’re deeply immersed in the fine coffee culture with hand-grinding your own coffee beans and using a coffee machine that costs as much as a (used) car, then I would suggest skipping this recipe. BUT if you want a quick and easy way to make Cold Brew Coffee, then you’ve come to the right place!

I mostly drink iced coffees, so I don’t have any use for freshly brewed, hot coffee. I don’t even own a coffee machine because I just started drinking coffee 1-2 years ago and immediately fell in love with iced coffees anyways.

So today I want to show you how I make my own Cold Brew Coffee (in a blender!).

How to make Cold Brew Coffee

The ingredients

You will need:

  • whole coffee beans – it’s totally up to your preference which beans you are using. I am using a mix of arabica and robusta beans.
  • water

The tools

A few notes on the equipment used in this recipe:

  • Blender: You don’t have to use a super powerful blender, a simple blender will work just fine. Mine did cost 60 dollars or so. An alternative to using a blender: You can also use a grinder to grind the coffee beans, then mix it with water and let it steep overnight.
  • Nut Milk Bag: A fine-mesh nylon nut milk bag will work best. The coffee might stain the nut milk bag, that is why I have different nut milk bags for coffee, juices, and nut milk.

The basic steps

Cold Brew Coffee
And ready is your cold brew coffee! Fill it into a glass jar and keep it in the fridge for up to a week. Serve it with ice cubes, plant-based milk and syrup (if you like!).
coffee ground as fertilizer
Zero-Waste: You can use the coffee grounds as a fertilizer or you can make your own body scrub!

How to bring your coffee game to the next level

Add homemade plant-based milk:

Add homemade syrup:

You can even make it into a Coffee Nice Cream Shake.

You can pour the coffee into ice cube trays and freeze them for coffee cubes.

You can also whip the coffee with brown sugar and make the popular dalgona coffee.

Thanks for this recipe I would love to try it but I need to buy the nut milk bags. What brand do you use? Many reviews say too much silt gets through the bag. Thank you!

I always buy the cheapest, no-brand nut milk bags :D I've always had good luck with fine-meshed nylon nut milk bags. I only had the problem with silt when I had a cotton nut milk bag.
