Beverages Cold Brew Coffee (University Foodie)

Cold Brew Coffee

Recently, it seems like cold brew coffee has started to become really popular. Once you try this, you’ll realize why.  Since there’s no heat, it lets very different flavors come through the coffee.  A lot of the flavors that are covered up from the acidity of regular brewed coffee are very noticeable in cold brew.  If you like iced coffee, you need to try this out!  Generally every single website I have researched uses a 1:4 coffee to water ratio.


  • 1 cup ground coffee
  • 4 cups filtered water


  • In a pitcher, combine the coffee ground and water.
  • Let sit at room temperature for 24 hours.
  • Strain the coffee grinds out using a strainer with a coffee filter inside.
  • Store in the fridge, serve over ice, and dilute with water to your liking.
