A few years ago I decided to launch into the endeavor of producing cold brew coffee. It was fun. I felt like a scientist tweaking my results as I experimented in my French press. I personally found that using a courser grind was more favorable for pleasant flavor notes sans the bitterness than a finer grind. Well, I found the sweet spot and the best time to wait. Pleased with my results, I then began....without thinking too far ahead mind you....making my 10 gallon bucket of cold process coffee. I stirred the grounds cloud with a giant paddle, and stirred every 5 hours as suggested. It, of course, never dawned on me that I had to figure out how to filter the darn thing afterwards. When I cam to finish the job, I tasted the finished brew and found it completely incredible. Ok. Now what? This took FOREVER! I used my large brew basket, and another bucket. I scooped up cold process unfiltered, and poured into the basket filter, and did this for...about 2 hours, until I finally had my awesome cold brew concentrate. I later used it to make an amazing cold brew iced latte that I served out of a 20 gallon carafe at the festival I was referring too. It was really good. Everyone loved it. And I have never ever done it again. It was so much work....

It wasn't hard until the filtering process, which was exhausting. I would like to do this more often. How do you suggest I filter in the future?

It's pretty interesting. Take a coffee that you like. Say to yourself, "I really know the ins and outs of this coffee." Cold brew it. Then you will find yourself tasting the coffee in a whole new way. It depends on the coffee you use for the end result. But overall in my opinion, by removing the cooking of the grounds via heat exchange, you save certain aspects of the bean. It becomes a new brew. And it's really easy to do. But, it usually takes more coffee per measurement of water than your hot brew. However...you can make some, and refrigerate it covered, and drink it over the week if you would like. It won't change much, and that is awesome. I haven't left any details, but there are tons of resources out there online that will explain the process. And...I may be being my recipe. ;D

There is a hand crafted to take cold brew into your own hand. You can get a pair of strainers and a 5 gallon bucket from hardware store. Strainers made of nylon are fit over the top lip of the bucket and hold the ground coffee. Then to brew is adding water and lets the coffee steep for 12 hours. You can have your extract after 12 hours. The strainers can easily be removed from the top of the bucket and you can access easily the brew from spigot near the bottom. It is easy to do and very economical.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

You can effortlessly make frozen coffee without a appliance. The best way to make frozen coffee is the cold-brew method.......
