Cold brew coffee is coffee that is brewed cold and is different from cold coffee.The coffee grounds are steeped in water as long as 24 hours to produce a concentrated coffee essence, which is then diluted to taste and served chilled.

How to Brew

Step 1 : Ingredients

What you need

  • Glass Jar (as per quantity needed)
  • Mean Bean 100% Arabica Ground coffee (If the grind is too fine, the flavors of the finished brew will be bitter and harsher, because of over-extraction. Therefore, your grind should be coarse for cold brewing)
  • RO Water
  • Cheese Cloth

Step 2: Brewing

Ratio of brewing : 1 litre of water needs approx. 80-90 grams of coffee (depending if you want a strong or light brew).

The immersion method of brewing involves steeping the ground beans (in a cheese cloth, aka muslin cloth) in cold water for up to 18-24 hours.

P.S- According to us, using the Mean Bean 100% Arabica or the Mean Bean Blend is the best way to get a smooth, full-flavoured cold brew.

Step 3: Storage

Store in a glass container in the fridge, Cold brew has a shelf-life of 15 days from date of brewing.

Add Milk or Whipped Cream as per taste:

Our advice is to try your finished brew first. If you prefer a little MILK in your coffee, add some.
But you may find you don’t need it. A blend of three parts cold brew to one part milk works well; it’s all just a matter of personal taste.

Ice, ice baby …

Serve your brew chilled, add ice to make it even better

Sexing up your brew

Vietnamese Cold Brew: Add Condensed Milk (as per taste) , instead of regular milk – you will get a kick-ass creamy sweet coffee, which is one of our BESTSELLERS.

Call it Charlie: Add 2 parts Cold brew and 1 part tonic water, it’s a great option for vegan and lactose intolerant folks. (you could also spike it with some alcohol, rum works best)

Cold Brew with Coconut Milk: If you like something tropical, add coconut milk to
