Easy Homemade Cold Brew Coffee Recipe
Cold brew coffee is the perfect summer drink if you're a coffee lover like me. Make a large batch of it at home and store it in the fridge for a weeks worth of delicious iced lattes.
All you need is 1 cup finely ground coffee (use your favorite) and 4 cups of filtered water.
Place the coffee grounds in a large mason jar and gently pour the water over the coffee grounds. Gently stir the mixture to ensure all the coffee grounds are wet.
Close the jar and place on the countertop overnight. Ideally you want it to sit for about 14-24 hours. The longer you leave it, the stronger the coffee will be so it totally depends on your own taste.
Use a nut milk bag to strain the coffee. You can do it more than once to ensure that there are no granules left. Pour the mixture back into the jar and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Honey Almond Milk Cold Brew Variations
Vanilla cold brew - Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to your honey almond milk cold brew coffee for a subtle vanilla flavor.
Spiced honey almond milk cold brew - For a spicy version of your favorite cold latte, add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
Honey almond milk nitro cold brew - For a delicious carbonated version, replace the cold brew coffee with nitro coffee.
Non-Dairy Milk Options
Oat milk - For a sweeter, creamier option, try using oat milk. My oatmilk lattes are a favorite on the blog.
Soy milk - Slightly more bitter, but still delicious. Add an extra drizzle of honey for more sweetness.
Coconut milk - Use coconut milk for a delicious honey and coconut flavored iced latte.
Macadamia milk - One of my ultimate favorites. This sweet and creamy nut milk is the perfect substitution for this honey cold brew latte.
