Cold brew is a strong choice any time of year, but comes into its own as a reviving summer drink. A totally different brewing and drinking experience to iced coffee – for cold brew you need cold filtered water, coarsely ground coffee and a much longer steep time to prepare it.
We know not everyone has a Toddy or a special cold brewer at home, so we've tailored our cold brew recipe for a brewer that's more commonly used at home – the cafetière.
What you'll need:
Our recommendation for the recipe of our RISE Filter Blend is to use a 1:6 ratio of coffee to water with a brewing time of 14-15 hours.
Your recipe will be based on the size of the brewer you have. Here are some examples of coffee-to-water ratios:
1 cup cafetière: 58g coffee: 350ml water
3 cup cafetière: 100g coffee: 600ml water
Pass your coffee through a filter paper when you're decanting it – this can help to remove some of the coffee sediment and give you a slightly cleaner and fresher cold brew.
Personalise your brew:
Manipulating the grind size, dose and brew time will extract different flavours from your coffee:

Made from a blend of washed and natural Arabica coffees sourced from La Providencia cooperative in Nicaragua and Kinini cooperative in Rwanda, RISE espresso blend is sweetly succulent with a rounded buttery body.
