I have been encouraging my boyfriend to read Finding Ultra by Rich Roll. Last week he picked-up the book and the first thing that caught his attention was cold brewed coffee. After some research he discovered that cold brewed coffee is less acidic, less bitter and less caffeinated than regular brewed coffee making it more smooth and flavourful. He decided to make it. The method is easy.
- Place a 1 cup of fresh finely ground coffee in 3 cups of filtered water. You can use a jar or French press. Stir to combine well. Cover and let it sit for at least 8 hours, and up to 24 hours at room temperature.
- Slowly pour the coffee through a coffee filter or fine sieve. Place the coffee concentrate in the refrigerator. To serve dilute it with water or your choice of milk. A 1/3 coffee concentrate, to 2/3 water or milk is a good ratio.
The coffee concentrate will last a week in the fridge.
It’s rare that I drink coffee but I tried and it’s really good with unsweetened almond milk. You can also make it healthier by adding VegaOne Chocolate, Vanilla Chai or new French Vanilla protein powder.
