Summertime in Seattle calls for a cold drink! Kendon Shaw with Victrola Coffee Roasters visits New Day NW studio to share easy and delicious cold brew coffee recipes that can be made from home.

Cold Brew Recipe (makes a concentrate to keep in your fridge):

12oz coffee

60oz cold filtered water

Combine water and coffee in large bowl and mix ensuring all coffee grounds are saturated. Cover and let sit overnight for 10-12 hours.

Scoop out most of the grounds and pour coffee concentrate through the funnel and filter on your normal coffee maker (you may need several filters).

Now you have a coffee concentrate you can keep in a sealed container in your fridge and dilute it 50/50 and pour over ice. (try 60/40 if you like it stronger)

Coffee dripper like Hario V60 or Chemex

Add ice to vessel you’ll brew into. Add filter and coffee to dripper and zero out scale. Start timer and add about 50g of water to bloom the coffee for 45s.
