For best results use a good quality spring water. Highland Spring works well.

It’s the tasty and inexpensive when bought from a wholesale warehouse.

The system comprises of 4 parts, the main jug and lid, the filter and filter lid, that’s it!

Instructions for making cold brew coffee:

Remove the lid from the jug and the lid from the filter.

Snip the corner of a java sachet, pour the contents of the sachet into the filter.

Settle the grounds by Shaking gently from side to side.

Pour 900ml of the water slowly over the top of the coffee.

Do not let the water gush out else it may flood the filter.

Keep the stream of water slow and steady.

The height of the grounds will rise as the water follows down, do not let these rise too high.

Replace the lid on the filter and the lid on the top of the jug.

The cold brew will now look like the image shown below.

Note the lovely red, brown and yellow colour mix.

It is normal to see bubbles in the red zone, this is nothing to worry about.

Place the jug upright in the fridge and leave it for 10 or more hours.

It will look like the picture below, nice and dark with the jug partially covered in a cold mist.

Undo the jug lid and remove the filter, do this over a sink to avoid spill from the dripping filter.

Empty the filter into a flower bed or in the bin,soak it ready to clean, straight away.

The cold brew is ready to serve and will look something like this:

Serving cold brew coffee

If you are posh like me then get hold of some Kinto Ice tea glasses.

These are excellent, double walled items which keep cold drinks cooler and hot drinks hotter.

These are taller then the coffee versions and therefore present better.

Place ice in the cup and fill two thirds with coffee, then add some milk.

For a dairy free alternative use 50ml of Alpro Soya Original.

The Alpro Soya Original is fantastic and tastes superb.

The best dairy based milk to use with a cold brew coffee is whipped Carnation milk, cream, or plain ice cream.

Congratulations on joining the cold brew revolution ! Spread the word.

Shown below are a few more images taken along the way as well as further information.

I hope you found this article interesting and enjoyable.

If you still have a degree of doubt remember where there is doubt there is no doubt, take the plunge.

Brewed cold coffee is a whole world away from the shock you get when you drink a cold coffee which you were expecting to be hot !

We have all done it.

This method opens up a brand new horizon and takes coffee to another dimension.

I for one primarily drink cold brewed, more so than I do hot filter, regardless of the weather,.

This may change but for now it remains a fascination.

Shown below is the internal filter, wash this out under the tap,

It’s a plastic filter, it’s not like a system where filter papers are needed.

That means an on going media cost of zero.

One side of the filter is flat, this allows a pour whilst the filter is still in place if required.

Aat this stage the filter can be seen through the brown in a yellow tinge.

    I sampled some cold brew at the Manchester coffee festival last year and loved it. At that time I looked around and the only products on the market were either really expensive or used disposable filters, so I didn’t bother. I had another look around a couple of months ago after visiting this years coffee festival and found this kit. I’ll just jump right in and it’s a no brainer!!! So easy to use and tastes just as good as the cold brew I tasted at the festival. My best mate tried some and also loved it too. So it was an easy and cheap Xmas gift that I know he will love. I would highly recommend this product and as usual the service from Happy Donkey is second to none.

      I agree using fillter papers is an expensive way to go.

      The Kinto proves they are not required.

      Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated.
