Save some money and make your own cold brew at home. This coffee recipe is so easy--plus you can make a double batch to have plenty on hand for an instant pick-me-up. Be sure to use coarsely ground coffee beans for cold brew. Finely ground coffee can make it cloudy. Source:, May 2018

  • Place ground beans in a large glass container with a lid. Slowly pour water over the grounds, making sure all the grounds are moistened. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Pour the brewed coffee through a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth or a coffee filter into a clean glass container. Press on the coffee grounds to extract as much liquid as possible. Serve over ice.



To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
