I know what you’re thinking, the weather is getting cooler – why are you drinking cold brewed coffee?? Here’s a little fun fact about me: I ALWAYS drink my coffee over ice. Year-round. No matter what. Don’t ask me why, but I’ve just never been a fan of hot drinks. So when Locals Coffee reached out to me asking if I would like to try out their cold brew coffee filters, I HAD to try it out!
I normally brew fresh espresso at home with our espresso machine (we have this one), but it can be time consuming when I’m in a hurry. That’s why I’ve been loving cold brew. It’s make it ahead of time and it’s ready to go for the rest of the week. On those rushed mornings I can still enjoy my cup of joe without the hassle of the espresso machine. With Locals Disposable Cold Brew Coffee Filters, the at home brewing process is easy-peasy! Not to mention they are available on Amazon! (And you know how much I love Amazon! 😉 )
Here’s how you make it:
Supplies needed for Cold Brew Coffee:
- Locals Cold Brew Coffee Filter
- Your favorite ground coffee (we used Starbucks House blend which worked fine, but cold brew grinds would be better!)
- 2qt pitcher (we used this one)
Add 8 scoops of coffee grinds into the filter, then pull drawstring tight, and tie to seal in grounds.
Place coffee filter inside a standard 2qt pitcher and fill with water. (Make sure you soak all of the grinds by gently pressing on the filter)
Let soak for 24-48hrs in refrigerator.
Remove filter and ENJOY!
I’m loving the convenience of having cold brew coffee in the fridge. Plus, it’s a great option for traveling (or any situation where a coffee maker isn’t available). It’s so much cheaper than a daily trip to Starbucks! Checkout how I sweeten up my cold brew with the homemade recipe below!
