Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate #SundaySupper

We are a coffee loving family. I actually gave it up during pregnancy and after the initial caffeine withdrawal headaches, didn’t feel that I missed it. But towards the end I started to add it back in. I love the tradition of sitting on the porch with my cup of coffee, slowly getting my morning started.

You can imagine how much we cried when my husband dropped our 12 cup french press and it shattered.

Besides our single serve Tassimo (which blows the Kuerig out of the water as far as strong, good coffee is concerned) we were coffee pot less. It was sad. We were going through T-disks like crazy. I had to come up with a way to use up the coffee beans we still had.

Enter cold brew coffee.

I had seen it at Trader Joe’s, but couldn’t bring myself to spend the $6.99 on it. After a quick search I realized it is incredibly easy to make yourself. So I ground up some beans to a medium grind, about what I would use in a french press and let them steep for 12 hours in the biggest Mason Jar I could find. After that you just strain it into a clean jar, and tada you have cold brew coffee!

I love giving homemade, edible gifts. All of my friends and neighbors usually get homemade candies and cookies. And this year my coffee loving friends and family can count on receiving cold brew coffee concentrate.

    I pretend that I’m not a coffee drinker, but I secretly like it. And I love cold brew! 24 hours and BAM, it’s like an entrance to a secret club that everyone knows about. I’d be very happy to receive a gift of this for Christmas!

    This is so cool!! I’m very new to the world of coffee, diet Coke was always my caffeine of choice but I quit a few months ago and now I also *slowly* start my mornings with a cup of k-cup coffee. I don’t think I’ve ever even had iced coffee before (yup, told you I’m a very recent convert, lol) but I would totally try this!
