Need a boost? This homemade cold-brewed coffee will definitely wake you up and keep you up. If you're a coffee (or caffeine) addict like Chance and me, then you will really appreciate this easy brew. I started making cold brewed coffee about 5 years ago while I was in college. Back then, I was always hurrying from class to class and didn't have time to make a fresh pot every few hours or the money to constantly be buying a cup at Starbucks. This recipe saved time and kept me focused, plus you can make it ahead and it's really simple - YOU ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS!
WHAT YOU NEED
• French press
I use a Bodum French Press to make my cold brew, linked below! I suggest using really good coffee for your cold brew to get the best results, but any coffee will ultimately work. I get my coffee back in Virginia from Rostov's, a local shop that roasts their own coffee in Richmond. If you're ever in the area I highly suggest you stop in there! Not only do they have the best coffee, but their staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They always make you feel like family. You can order online too!
1. Fill your french press up with 4 cups of water and add 2 cups of coffee grounds.
2. Let the mixture sit for 12 hours or overnight at room temperature.
3. Serve immediately on ice or let it sit in the fridge.
**NOTE** BEFORE YOU SERVE, this mixture is highly concentrated. You will need to add an additional 4 cups of water once it's finished brewing, or half water and half coffee each time you make a cup.
