• Very interesting, Susan. My first reaction would be: “How different is the flavour than what you’d get from a good quality ‘instant coffee’?” I imagine there is a significant difference, but would be curious whether a focus group could tell the difference when the product is used in some kind of blended drink i.e. not just drinking it pure. Either way, I love it! Having the starter for a myriad of great coffee drinks would surely make like easier. Thx for the recipes!

  • Hm, I have a French Press – it sort of does this already. I wonder what would happen if I used cold water instead of hot and left it in the fridge for a day. Anything from my French Press tastes better than most other coffee I have tried. I usually grind the beans right before making a cup.

  • I was wonder too like Leora what would happen if that was attempted with a French press. The only time I’ve currently been using a French press is out camping, but it really does taste better than what comes from the coffee pot. Alas, the press doesn’t have a timer on it 😉

  • I’ve never made cold brew coffee and I don’t think I’ve ever tasted it. This would be interesting to try.

    I’ve been adverse to trying cold brew coffee, but my sister recently got hooked on it, and then poof–there’s your recipe, so I may have to give it a try. I’ll pop back here and let you know!

  • I love cold brew coffee! I never thought about making such a large amount of concentrate to keep on hand. Brilliant!

  • I love cold brew coffee! I really enjoy it in the summer months. I read somewhere that it is helpful to make coffee ice cubes to minimize how diluted the cold brew coffee would get when you use regular ice. I haven’t tried it yet though.
