Cold Brew Coffee In Your French Press

    Cold Brew Coffee In Your French Press

    Now that the weather is warming up, I enjoy my coffee cold. Sometimes this means chilling my hot brewed coffee, but I also like to switch up my brewing methods. Here is how to cold brew coffee in your French press.


    • Large French press
    • 3/4 cup medium roast coffee beans or coarse coffee grounds
    • 4 cups cold water


    1. Add 3/4 cup coarse coffee grounds to your French press.
    2. Add enough water to cover the grounds, and stir.
    3. Slowly pour in the rest of the water while stirring.
    4. Add the top, but don’t plunge.
    5. Place in the refrigerator to cold brew for at least 12 hours, no more than 24 hours.
    6. When your desired brewing time is up, slowly and evenly, plunge your French press.
    7. Pour your cold brew concentrate into a mason jar or pitcher.
    8. This is a concentrate, so when you are ready to drink it dilute with 1/4 to 1/2 water.
    9. Add ice, milk, or sugar to taste.
    10. Enjoy within the next 2 to 3 days.

    Your cold brew will taste different than the same grounds brewed hot, a bolder flavor with less acid. The longer the brewing time the bolder the flavor. You can also adjust the water to coffee grounds ratio.
