Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole coffee beans I prefer a darker blend
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise optional
  • Simply Pure Vanilla Creamer

Instructions

  1. Coarsely grind the coffee beans and add to a large pitcher or bowl filled with 4 cups filtered water. Add vanilla bean and stir to combine. Cover loosely and refrigerate for 12-15 hours.

  2. Line a mesh strainer with cheesecloth or coffee filters and place over a large cup or bowl. Pour the coffee through the strainer, reserve the vanilla bean and discard the grounds. Rinse off the vanilla bean to remove any coffee grounds, then use a paring knife to scrape out the beans from inside the pod. Add the vanilla beans to the coffee and whisk to combine. Serve coffee over ice with Simply Pure Vanilla Creamer. If your coffee is really strong and concentrated you can dilute it with a little water. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

Note: Cold brew coffee tends to be more caffeinated than traditionally brewed coffee. When making cold brew I typically mix regular and decaf beans before grinding them. Feel free to make this all decaf, all regular, or half and half.
