Grind Your Beans
Start with a coarse grind of your Starbucks Cold Brew Blend coffee beans. The grind should resemble sea salt. This ensures optimal extraction.

Measure Your Coffee and Water
The ideal coffee to water ratio for cold brew is 1:8. That's one part coffee to eight parts water. For a strong Starbucks style brew, use 1 cup of coffee for every 4 cups of cold, filtered water.

Brew Time
Let your coffee steep for at least 16 to 24 hours at room temperature. This slow brewing process is what gives cold brew its smooth, rich flavor.
