Cold Brewed Coffee: Update

I did a First Friday Food post about cold brewed coffee a while back, but we had an amazing discovery which deserved an update! If you use cheese cloth instead of paper coffee filters, the filtering time goes from about 2 hours to about 1 minute! We still filtered the grounds out once with a mesh strainer, but with the cheese cloth you basically just pour the coffee through, no waiting. We couldn’t tell any difference in the final product.

It’s not very often that you can so easily improve your efficiency by 6000%! In fact, doing it this way seemed easier and faster even than using a Toddy. Plus you can reuse the cheese cloth, so you don’t even have to throw away the paper filters. It certainly changes making cold brewed coffee from, “you better really like it” to “why not?”
