How to Make French Pressed Cold Brewed Coffee

Turn your French press into a cold brew coffee maker and enjoy the sweet smooth taste of cold brew coffee. Not to be confused with ice coffee, cold brew is an art where the coffee grounds brew for 12 to 24 hours in cool water. As a result, you get 67% less acidic coffee than your regular hot brewed coffee, and cold brew can still be served up hot. If you like cold brew (You know you do) and you happen to have a French press machine (You're a coffee-lover, of course, you do.), you can quickly make a French pressed cold brew at home. Here is how.

You'll need the following items:

About 1 - 1 1/2 cups of ground coffee (Coarsely grounded)

3 – 3 1/2 cups cold water

Your French Press

  2. Next, carefully add 3 cups of cold or room temperature water over the coffee grounds.

  3. Stir gently to wet all of the coffee grounds.

  4. Allow to sit at room temperature or let it sit in the refrigerator for 14-16 hours.

  5. Lastly, press and pour into a covered jar or pitcher.
