Easy Iced Coffee Recipe: How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home

It’s no secret the cold brew iced coffee trend isn’t going anywhere. (People are even using it in beer and food recipes!) And with National Coffee Day coming up on September 29, you should know that compared to regular coffee, it’s naturally sweeter and smoother, as well as lower in acidity. According to Best Food Facts, cold brew sales increased by 580% from 2011 to 2016; and the iced drink continues to make a buzz.

However, if you want to save time and money by skipping the drive-through, Amora Coffee can help. While we offer a cold brew coffee blend specifically for making cold brew at home, you can also whip up some cold brew with any of our regular blends if you follow our easy recipe. Either way, your mornings are about to be the coolest part of your day. With Amora Cold Brew Blend:

  1. In a two-quart pitcher, add four cups cold, filtered water and two packs of Amora Coffee Cold Brew. (Our cold brew packs offer a simple, no-mess method of making cold brew coffee due to the built-in coffee filter surrounding the grounds.) Add more or less coffee packs based on desired strength.
  2. Place the pitcher in the fridge to steep for 8-12 hours.
  3. Remove pitcher from the fridge and extract cold brew packs from pitcher.
  4. Add three cups of cold, filtered water to pitcher.
  5. Add any fixings (cream, sugar, etc.) and enjoy!
With Amora Ground Coffee:
  1. Gather ⅓ cup of your favorite Amora Coffee blend and 1½ cups of cold, filtered water.
  2. Add both ingredients to an appropriately sized carafe or vessel. Add more or less coffee grounds based on desired strength.
  3. Cover vessel and let it sit at room temperature for approximately 12 hours.
  4. Strain mixture twice through a coffee filter to create a coffee concentrate.
  5. In a glass of ice, add equal parts coffee concentrate and cold, filtered water.
  6. Add any fixings (cream, sugar, etc.) and enjoy!
Both recipes can be altered to favor your flavor and strength preference. Just add more water for weaker cold brew and less for stronger.
