Cold Brew Coffee is a cool, refreshing summer drink you can enjoy on hot days when you still really need some caffeine. Made with just coffee and water!

Coffee doesn’t just have to be piping hot. In fact, one of the most delicious ways to enjoy coffee is Cold Brewed. Not only does it give you that punch of energy that you need, but it is also just plain delicious.

COLD BREW COFFEE

On summer days, you still need your morning coffee fix, but what if it’s just too hot for a warm beverage? The answer to your question is still coffee (the answer is ALWAYS coffee), but try making a delicious cup of Cold Brew. Cold Brew Coffee still has all of that delicious, rich, delightfully bitter flavor, but in a refreshing, cool form.

It’s much easier to take on the go with you because you don’t have to worry about splashing boiling fluid on yourself and you don’t have to wait hours to be able to drink it.

SAVE SOME FOR LATER

If you don’t finish all of your Cold Brew Coffee just stick it back in the fridge for later. As long as you keep it covered, it will stay good for about a week, but for the best taste, we recommend drinking it in the first few days. Just pull it straight out and enjoy it, no heating necessary.

COST FACTOR
$: Do you have water? Do you have coffee grounds? You’re all ready to go then! You can buy ground coffee for anywhere between $5 and $15 depending on how expensive your tastes are.
