An Easy Guide to Making Cold Brew Coffee

Along the side of the brewer, they have markings for 8 oz, 16 oz, 24 oz and 32 oz. Pretty cool. Now I don’t need to use a measuring cup to add water. For this brewer, I only advise only using the 32 oz mark. Below 16 oz and the coffee filter does not make contact with the water. At 24 oz, not all the coffee will be under the water line. But at 32 oz, the water line reaches exactly to the level in the filter where the ground coffee reaches.

Also note that once you remove the filter, you won’t get 32 ounces of coffee. It will be closer to 24 ounces.

The other thing I like about this brewer is the design. Not only does it functionally perform its task as a cold brewer, but it looks nice on the counter. And when the coffee is finished brewing, it has a nice handle that makes pouring easy.

Let us make some cold brew coffee.

1 Grind 1 Cup of Coffee

A common ratio in cold brew coffee is 4 to 1. This means 4 parts water for 1 part coffee. 32 ounces is 1 quart. 4 cups in a quart. Divide by 4 and we get 1 cup of coffee. For those that prefer grams, use 85 grams of coffee. The coffee should be ground medium coarse to coarse. See our Coffee Grind Chart for more guidance, but don’t be concerned with being exact. Cold brew is very forgiving.
