Making Cold Brew with Coffee Brew Bags

In recent years, cold brew coffee has gained immense popularity among coffee enthusiasts. By far the easiest and most convenient way to make cold brew coffee is by using coffee brew bags.

The Basics of Cold Brew Coffee

Before we dive into the specifics of making this refreshing beverage, it’s important to know what it is, and is not! Cold brewing is a method that involves steeping fresh ground coffee in cold water for 12 to 24 hours. It’s not hot coffee that has been chilled. The slow cold extraction process results in a smoother, less acidic coffee.

Why Choose Coffee Brew Bags?

We make Cupper’s brew bags out of biodegradable filter paper. Each bag contains a set measure of fresh ground coffee. Using these pre-measured bags eliminates having to weigh coffee and deal with strainers. Coffee brew bags are portable, making them ideal for on-the-go coffee enthusiasts.

Brewing Cold Brew with Coffee Brew Bags: Step-by-Step Guide

To brew a delicious batch of cold brew using coffee brew bags, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients and Equipment

To get started, you will need the following:

Step 3: Add Water and Ice

Pour the filtered water into the brewing container. Ensure that the coffee brew bags are either submerged in the water or covered by ice completely.

Step 4: Steep the Coffee Brew Bags

Once the Gravel Bar Coffee Brew Bags and water are in the container, cover it and let it steep in the fridge for 12 to 24 hours. The longer the steeping time, the stronger the brew will be. Experiment with different steeping times to find your preferred strength and flavor profile.

Step 5: Remove the Coffee Brew Bags

After the desired steeping time, lift the coffee brew bags out of the container. Squeeze them with care to extract any remaining liquid held within the bags. Discard the used bags in your compost.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy

Add any flavourings you’d like, or go with it plain. The choices are all yours. Adding cold milk makes it an iced latte. Try a dollop of quality ice-cream in your glass for a real treat. And of course, there’s always a wide variety of Monin Syrups you could add for a refreshing change!
