Cold Brew Coffee w/ Coconut Sugar

Cold Brew Coffee w/ Coconut Sugar
Even though it's Fall, the temps are still in the eighties here in Florida. So today I'm sharing with you the most delicious way I know how to beat the heat, while still getting that much needed caffeine!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
an empty seal-able container
a french press or cheesecloth

INGREDIENTS
2/3 cup ground coffee
3 cups water
+
1/2 coconut sugar
1/2 water
DIRECTIONS FOR COFFEE CONCENTRATE
Combine coffee and water in a large bowl (w/ a spout), stir well.
Pour the coffee mix into a seal-able container.
Place in refrigerator for up to 12 hours (no longer than 24).

After 12 hours have passed, shake up the coffee concentrate, pour it into a french press and press down on the plunger. *If you are using the cheesecloth method: place the cheese cloth over a large bowl (w/ a spout) and strain the coffee mix twice to remove all of the coffee grounds.
Pour into a clean seal-able container.

DIRECTIONS FOR COCONUT SUGAR SIMPLE SYRUP
Place 1/2 cup coconut sugar and 1/2 cup water in a pot over medium heat, stir until sugar is dissolved. Let cool and place in an air tight container. This will make enough sugar for several cold brew coffees.

DIRECTIONS FOR A COLD-PRESSED COFFEE DRINK
Pour cold brew coffee into a glass over ice - add simple syrup and milk (or milk alternative) to taste.

Stick in a brightly coloured straw and enjoy!

  1. I've never made a cold brew coffee! Unfortunate for me, I only really like hot coffee - even in the dead of Florida summers! That led to many mornings of sweating while getting ready. Makeup does not stick to hot faces. Bleh!

    1. I definitely prefer hot coffee over cold coffee. I feel your pain of hot coffee during summer. It's just so good!
