Step by Step Guide to Making Cold Brew Coffee

A cup of water and a quarter cup of coarsely ground coffee
Step 1: Measure Your Coffee
Start by measuring your coffee. The cold brew coffee ratio is 1:4, so for every 1 cup of water, you'll need 1/4 cup of coarsely ground coffee. This ratio will give you a strong brew, perfect for iced coffee.

Step 2: Combine Coffee and Water
Next, combine the coffee and water in your jar or pitcher. Stir well to ensure all the coffee grounds are saturated with water.

Step 3: Let It Brew
Cover the jar or pitcher and let the coffee brew at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. The longer it brews, the stronger and more flavorful your coffee will be.
