I am a coffee lover. I like the taste of my starbucks k cup pods. But this time I will try to make a cold coffee. Let’s see how will I do this!

I’ve been a Barista in high end coffee for about 4 years now. One of the things you learn early on is that it is distasteful to ever ice espresso. Many go forward never questioning why this is such a bad idea, but I have an inquisitive mind and looked into it further.

It turns out that coffee is high in chlorogenic acid, which, as the coffee cools, forms quinic acid, which has a noteable and overwhelming astringent flavor. So the task is to brew coffee in a way that does not involve heat, and also reduces the apparent acidity. In the 60’s the Toddy method became popular and it produces a finished product that is notably less bitter and actually puts forward a deep caramel and chocolaty flavor. Cold brew coffee is perfect for a warm day.

I decided to make my own cold brew coffee brewer.

Cold brew coffee makes a smooth, non-bitter coffee that is especially perfect for iced coffee. The full guide has step-by-step instructions and photos you can check out. The basic idea is to fix the felt in the two-liter plastic bottle’s mouth and screw the cap on.

Make two pouches of the coffee using the filters and thread. Then, invert the plastic bottle, cut off its bottom and fill it up with water. Drop the coffee pouches in and brew for 12-24 hours. Unscrew the cap and let the extract drip into the empty glass bottle for clean, double-filtered brew. Click the link below to see this great article.
