DIY Cold Brew

My friends over at Prima Coffee posted this today and I thought it was too good not to share:

DIY cold brew for $30! You’ll need: Aeropress with 2 filters, bottle, sewing needle, sharp knife, water, ice, and coffee.

[1] Empty bottle and cut off bottom.

[2] Remove bottle’s cap and puncture w/ needle. Replace cap. Test flow by filling w/ water and watching rate, aiming for about 40 drops per minute.

[3] Wet filter and assemble Aeropress, filling w/ 45 g (9 tbsp) of medium-fine ground coffee.

[4] Moisten grounds and stir gently, subtracting water used from total water dose. Level coffee bed with finger.

[5] Trim second filter to fit inside of Aeropress and place atop coffee bed, pressing softly to level.

[6] Place Aeropress on jar and mount bottle on top.

[7] Fill bottle w/ 300 g (10 oz) water and 200 g (7 oz) ice.

After bottle has emptied, serve coffee over ice.
