Well… it takes one to stand and watch, and another to make the magic happen. I collaborated with my babe Kristen for this blog post, and it gives me all the feels! Girl power! It’s always so fun and inspiring doing things together and empowering each other. Kristen has been all about the homemade cold brew this summer, and I don’t blame her! It’s delicious, easy to make, and it contains a lower acidity level compared to a regular brewed coffee (making it easier on digestion). Plus, it’s a way to keep cool and still be able to enjoy your coffee on a hot summer days.
Enjoy a cold brew black, or have fun with it by blending it with ice + nut milk. You could even blend in some extra ingredients like coconut oil, collagen, and cinnamon for some nourishing elevation… bulletproof cold brew?
I’ll let Kristen take it from here…
Cold Brew Tips:
- Prep your cold brew in the evening prior to dinner or after dinner, this way it’ll be ready for you to enjoy in the morning.
- Coarse grounds make it easier to strain later.
- The straining process can be a bit tedious, but trust me – super worth it!
- I layered a cheesecloth into a colander and balanced the colander over the jug. I found this easier than straining through a cheesecloth stretched over the mouth of the pitcher you’re using
- Your cold brew will last up to a week in the refrigerator, however, mine never lasts that long… #coffeeaddict
Buzzin’ Cold Brew Recipe
Low acidity, best enjoyed on a hot summer’s day with your favourite person(s)
- In a pitcher, large enough to accomodate, cover 5 oz of coffee grounds with 6 cups of water. Be sure to stir to saturate all the grounds.
- Cover and refrigerate for 10-12 hours.
- Once the hours have passed, stir and strain through a cheesecloth into another pitcher.
- Serve over ice with Almond Breeze nut milk, and enjoy a nice glass of Doi Chaang Buzzin’ cold brew!
I hope you guys enjoyed this coffee lovin’ collab! Not only was I lucky enough to have Kristen show me the cold brew ropes, but she also took all of these amazing photos (+ so many others that appear throughout the blog! Go check her out at LoveCraft Photography and give her some love!).
Have you ever made your own homemade cold brew? Do you notice a difference in acid levels with cold brew in comparison to a regular brewed coffee? I’d love to hear your experiences!
