Easy Cold Brew Coffee For One

The no-mess, no-fuss way to cold brew coffee for one.

      I received samples from Steeped Coffe to facilitate this post.

  I love cold brew coffee as it has a sweeter rich taste that is also less acidic when compared to regular coffee. Cold brew coffee is not just coffee poured over ice but it is a cup of delicious coffee that has been slowly brewed for 12-24 hours in cold water. That may seem like a long time for a cup of coffee but once you try cold brew coffee, you will understand the need for a slow brew. Slow brewing coffee in cold water produces a sweeter rich coffee that is less bitter with less acid. So if you have problems with acid and coffee, you need to try cold brew coffee. You don't even need any fancy coffee makers to make cold brew coffee. All you need is coffee, a container and a way to strain the coffee grounds. You can make a large batch of cold brew coffee concentrate and store it in your fridge or you can make one delicious cup at a time so you can have fresh cold brew coffee every day.

Making cold brew coffee the easy way

 The one part of making cold brew coffee that I do not like is having to strain the coffee grounds after the coffee has brewed. This can take a while and require several coffee filters or a special mesh filter. This coffee straining can be slow and mess with coffee grounds sometimes ending up in the coffee. So that requires a second straining. I discovered a wonderful coffee that comes in a guilt-free packaging that is great for making a no-mess, no-fuss, cup of cold brew coffee. You simply place the fresh roasted, pre-portioned coffee in a container of cold water and let it brew overnight on your counter. You then wake up to a delicious cup of cold brew coffee. All you have to do is remove the customized coffee filter from the water and drink. I love that I don't have to wait forever for the coffee to strain through a messy filter. I do give the bag of coffee a squeeze to get all the coffee flavor into my cup. You can add milk and sweetener if you like but I think you will discover that this rich flavorful coffee has a sweet taste and may not need any sugar.

Enjoy cold brew coffee when traveling

 I love taking Steeped Coffee with me when I travel to blog conferences. The single serve coffee packs can be packed in my carry on as they have no liquid in them. just fresh premium coffee in Nitro Sealed bags, that keeps the oxygen out so the coffee stays fresh. Once I get to the hotel, I place the single serve coffee pouch into a container of cold water and then I get to wake up to fresh cold brew coffee. The coffee only needs to slow brew in the cold water for 12-24 hours. If you want a cup of rich delicious coffee sooner, simply steep the Steeped Bag in hot water for about five minutes. There is no machine, no noise, no cleanup, no destructive waste.

How to make cold brew coffee for one

  Fill a container with 6-8 ounces cold water. I love using a small Mason jar. When traveling, I use a plastic protein shaker jar or travel coffee mug.

Place the bag of fresh premium Steeped coffee into the cold water. The tough part is choosing which coffee blend you want, there are five blends of Steep coffee roasts to choose from, even decaf!

Dunk the coffee bag a couple of times so the coffee gets fully soaked, I like to place a spoon on top of the coffee bag for while to help the soaking.

Place a lid over the container and let it brew on your counter for 12 -24 hours, the longer it brews the more flavor.

After the Steeped coffee has brewed, remove the bag and squeeze all the water out of it, getting all that flavorful coffee into the container.

Add milk and sweetener to taste. You can also add some ice if you want the coffee cold or heat it up for a cup of warm, cold brew coffee.

+Repeat the above steps daily so you can enjoy cold brew coffee every day.
