Simple guide for making Cold Brew at home.

You will need:
1/2lb Coarsely Ground Costa Dark Roast Coffee
1 Gallon of Cold Water
Large pitcher
Gold cone filter
Patience

1. Tip the coffee grounds into a large pitcher.
2. Pour over the water, stirring to ensure that all the grounds are wet.
3. Cover and set aside to steep for 24 hours at room temperature.
4. Strain twice using a gold cone filter. This yields a Cold Brew concentrate of approx. 3/4 Gallon.
5. Mix with water, to desired strength and mix with ice, dairy, alternative dairy and your favorite flavoring.
6. The concentrate uncut is great for coffee cocktails.
7. Refrigerate after brewing and it will be good for up to 7 days, IF it lasts that long!

Top Tip: Campfire Cold Brew: Add Monin Oak Barrel Concentrate Flavor and Monin Toasted Marshmallow Syrup with half & half for a fantastic fire pit companion - all the better topped with a toasted marshmallow!
