Cold Brew Coffee with an Aeropress

in #coffee7 years ago (edited)

I've been making coffee with an Aeropress, one cup at a time, for many years now. Recently I discovered, at Starbucks, cold brewed coffee. Instant love. So how to make it? Beginner's mind suggested the obvious solution, so I went to work.

I used my normal two scoops of beans per cup. I use Capulin Coffee. Jungle-grown in Mexico. Cleaned by hand. Never any water, until you add it.

I ground it up, added water and mixed well, covered with a saucer, and refrigerated overnight. Then did the usual Aeropress magic in the morning. Very easy. Very yummy!

Yes, cold brew is awesome. Good post!

Have you tried nitro coffee yet? Oh my goodness - it's SO good. If you like nitro beers, you'll absolutely love it.

A few places near me have it and you can get it in growlers and in cans. If you get a growler, maybe see if they have a 16 oz one because you need to drink it all within 2-3 days at the most and this stuff is potent... BUT GOOD!

This is the first I've heard of nitro coffee. Whipping coffee by infusing it with nitrous oxide (NO2). Interesting.

Yesterday, I turned on the proprietress of a local espresso bar to cold brew. I made an overnight Capulin/Aeropress brew and took it to her in an insulated travel mug. Also told her about nitro coffee. She may add both to her offerings. Thanks to @tcstix!

Tried Nitro at the local bagel shop. They buy their coffee premade, and put it in the nitro dispenser. It was good, and strong, but I like my home-made cold brew better. Fresh ground Capulin coffee is very hard to beat.
