So what exactly is a cold brew coffee maker?
The short answer is, it can be anything from a sophisticated electronic coffee press to something as simple as a mason jar.
A cold brew coffee maker uses room temperature or cold water and coarsely ground roasted coffee beans to produce cold brew coffee. It’s a very simple process. You basically soak ground coffee beans in water for 24-36 hours and then enjoy.
Cold brew coffee is less acidic than hot brewed and much easier on your stomach. Hot brewed coffee can sometimes upset your stomach or produce excess stomach gas and bloating.
The simplest and least expensive way to cold brew coffee is to buy a 2 liter mason jar with a stainless steel filter that fits inside the jar. These are sold together.
Here’s how you cold brew coffee.
You fill the metal filter with coarsely ground coffee and then fill the jar with filtered water. Now put the lid on and screw it on tight. Shake the jar to thoroughly saturate the ground coffee and remove the air. Now top off the jar with more water until full. Place the jar in the refrigerator for 24-36 hours or place it on your counter top for 12-18 hours. When it’s done, remove the metal filter with the ground coffee. Now your cold brew coffee is ready to serve or store in the frig.
