How To: Make Your Own Cold Brew Coffee!

Posted by Sarah Klacik on

Caffeinated and cold, I'm not sure if there's a better summer beverage than Cold Brew Coffee for the hot and humid summer we experience here in Hawaii!

There are many benefits to choosing it over regular iced coffee (check out this blog post about Cold Brew), so why not work it into your summer routine!


In a large jar, add:

  • 1 part coarsely ground coffee (request a French Press grind, if you have us grind it)
  • 4-8 parts cool filtered water, depending on your desired strength.

Coffee Gallery Note: Any of our coffees work, but 100% Maui Kaanapali Estate Mokka makes a delicious cold brew!!

Give it a gentle stir, until well combined. 

Cover with something breathable (a paper towel or cheese cloth works well), and let stand at room temperature for at least 12 hours, and no more than 24.

After your desired steeping time, line a fine mesh sieve with a paper coffee filter and strain the cold brew.

If you don’t have a paper filter, use a cheese cloth or paper towel, repeating until you get your desired clarity.

Refrigerate with an airtight lid for up to 2 weeks.

To serve, pour your cold brew over ice, add milk, cream, simple syrup or whatever you want!
