A post from 7th September 2016. Don't be misunderstood by the term "cold-brewed coffee" being cold coffee. Cold-brewed coffee is actually brewing coffee in the water at room temperature over time. The ground coffee will "ferment" the water leaving behind a dark, rich, aromatic cold-brewed coffee. It even leaves an aftertaste in your mouth for some time.
The great thing about this cold-brewed coffee is that you can mix it up with whatever ways you desire; from latte to mocha to frappe. The possibilities are endless. You don't even need a high-end coffee machine to make some fantastic coffee! Without much delay, let's get started with the recipe.
(Make about 1 liter of cold-brewed coffee)
High Quality Coffee Bean, 225g
Water, 1 Liter
Vanilla Bean Split, 1
High Quality Cocoa Powder, 25g

*You will need to strain the coffee at least 2 or more times.
