  • lockable water bottle
  • Ground coffee
  • Water


  • In a lockable water bottle, you can use a plastic jug, glass bottle, old soft drink bottle anything you like.
  • Being scientific, not, I chucked in a load of grounds.
  • This will take some working out for how strong you would like your coffee.
  • Fill to the top with water.
  • Give it a shoogle to mix the coffee and place in the 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. ┬áPlus it waters down your coffee, and you don't want that.
  • After about 12 hours, remove from fridge.
  • I used a tea strainer to remove the grounds. Then added some milk to taste. No sugar was needed as it wasn't bitter at all.
