Cold Brew Coffee Recipe
With summer almost here, we wanted to share our favorite cold brew coffee recipe so you could make it at home. If you’ve never tried cold brew coffee before, you will find it smooth. The hardest part about making any cold brew coffee recipe is waiting for it to brew. We really enjoy cold brew made with Ladro Espresso, but you can make it with any blend that you prefer, including Decaf. Choosing a coffee blend for your first cold brewing adventure is a great place to start. Your first batch of cold brew coffee with have all the flavors you’ve come to love in your morning cup.
As you continue to enjoy cold brew coffee, you might try cold brewing with micro-lot coffees. Micro-lot cold brew is incredible because the brewing process intensifies the fruit and floral notes in a way that heat brewing coffee cannot. When cold brewing micro-lot coffees, you will definitely experience the flavors outlined in the coffee tasting notes. Experimenting with different roast profiles and coffees from different regions will help you find your perfect cold brew.
6 oz coffee, ground coarsely (we like our Ladro Espresso Blend for cold brew)
36 oz water (4 ½ cups)
2 quart pitcher (you will need 2 pitchers, one for brewing and one to pour into when straining)
- Coarsely grind coffee and place it in your pitcher
- Add cold or room temperature water and stir
- Let mixture rest covered at room temperature for 18-24 hours
- Strain coffee into additional pitcher using a fine sieve and/or cheese cloth
- Dilute with 4 cups cold water or use as a concentrate and add water, milk, or club soda in a 50/50 ratio.
We hope you try the Caffe Ladro cold brew coffee recipe. For a summer sweet treat, add a drizzle or a shot of your cold brew concentrate to ice cream to make an Affogato (typically ice cream with a shot of espresso poured over). We’re partial to our Shakerato for summertime or for a nice little afternoon pick-me up. Pinterest offers countless recipes for coffee drinks.
