Homemade cold brew coffee recipe

Adapted from my invisible crown

Yields 6-8 servings


  • 1 large Mason jar or glass container with lid
  • 1 pound coarsely ground coffee
  • 10 cups filtered water


  1. Add the coffee and the water to the glass jar or container and cover. Allow the mixture to sit for 15 to 24 hours for best flavor.
  2. Using a large mesh sieve or strainer, pour the mixture through the strainer to remove all of the coffee grounds (do not stir or mix the coffee, let it drain through the strainer on its own).
  3. To serve, mix equal parts of coffee concentrate with your choice of milk, almond milk, sweetener and serve over ice.


Store the brewed coffee covered in the refrigerator up to a week and a half.
