When it’s too hot for coffee, don’t fret; an iced Americano is the perfect way to get your fix and keep your cool. This “cold brew method” will yield a large amount of espresso that will keep fresh for at least a week.
Prepare your cold brew by mixing the ½ gallon of water with the ½ pound of coarse ground coffee in a gallon size container.
Allow to sit at room temperature for eight to ten hours. (At the café we allow our cold brew to sit overnight).
After the coffee has been allowed to sit, pour the mixture through a tight-meshed strainer. This will separate the coffee grounds from the espresso.
Pour your cold brewed coffee into a container of your choice and refrigerate. This recipe yields 8 cups. To make a larger batch, simply double the size of the recipe.
Pour one half cup of the cold brew into your cup and, if desired, add a little water at a time until it is at the proper taste for you. Add cream if you wish, then add ice. It’s a refreshing way to enjoy Café Campesino coffee when the temperature is rising.
Or, for an easier approach you can use our new Cold Brew Filter Packs which are easy to prepare with little-to-no mess, because we have pre-portioned the coffee into filter packs for you. See the video below.
