Cold Brew Coffee


  • Commercially ground coffee (not instant), available pre-ground from most supermarkets or coffee roasters 
  • Water
  • Ice
  • Sugar or artificial sweetener, optional 
  • Milk, optional 


  1. Mix roughly 4 tsp ground coffee with 5-600mL water in a jug 
  2. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours, preferably overnight 
  3. When ready to serve, filter through a very fine sieve, careful not to disturb the coffee sediment at the bottom of the jug - discard this. 
  4. Serve with ice, milk and sugar to taste
