The delightful cold brew coffee story

Cold brew coffee is for anyone who prefers coffee with low-acidity and tea-like mouthfeel. It is gentle on your body because it contains lesser tannin and caffeine. Even better, cold brewing by immersion requires little effort from you. All you need to do is steep your coffee grounds in cold water. Then let time do the work for you. And voila! It’s ready to drink when you wake up the next morning.

In other words, steeping is the key while time is the essence for a delightful immersion cold brew coffee.

Cold brew coffee tips

  • Adjust the flavour and strength by playing with the cold brew ratio. In this cold brew recipe, the coffee to water ratio is 1 : 10. You can reduce the coffee grounds for a lighter body or increase the coffee grounds for a stronger taste.
  • Use coarse grind size. We recommend the following grind sizes:
      • 6 to 7 notches for Hario Skerton +
      • 19 to 21 for Baratza Encore 
  • Serve over ice for a chilling brew or add milk for a cold brew latte. Adjust the ratio according to your taste preference. We recommend the following ratios:
      • Coffee to ice ratio of 3 : 1 (e.g., for 180g coffee, add 60g ice)
      • Coffee to milk ratio of 3 : 1 (e.g., for 180g coffee, add 60g milk)
