Cold-Brewed Coffee

Cold-Brewed Coffee Ingredients
An image of filtered water and whole coffee beans, the two ingredients for cold-brewed coffee.

The ingredients for cold-brewed coffee aren't different from those for regular hot coffee, but the flavor of the final product is much smoother with cold-water extraction.

Ease of preparation and a smooth flavor make Cold-Brewed Coffee a hot-weather hit. Cold brewing coffee is easy -- simply brew it overnight in a large batch. It will stay fresh for up to two weeks, but I can't promise it will last you very long!

Great cold-brewed coffee begins with one cup good-quality, whole coffee beans and one quart (four cups) cold or room-temperature filtered water. You'll also need a quart-sized pitcher, jar or pot, some cling film and a refrigerator.
