Recipe – Cold Brewed Coffee

Cold brewed coffee

For a less bitter coffee on a humid day give Cold Brewed Coffee a try. It’s different to a frappe in that you have to think beforehand. No five minute instant coffee job here but a 12 hour soak.

I used a lockable water bottle but you can use a plastic jug, glass bottle, old soft drink bottle anything you like.

Give it a shoogle to mix the coffee and place in fridge.

One thing not to do is use hot coffee and add ice – coffee is high in chlorogenic acid, which, as the coffee cools, forms quinic acid which makes the coffee bitter.  Plus it waters down your coffee, and you don’t want that.

After about 12 hours, remove from fridge.
