• Let the mixture steep for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.

• Place the mesh strainer or cheese cloth over the bowl and lay a coffee filter over the top.

• Pour the cold brewed coffee over the strainer and let it strain until it all drips through. Get rid of the grounds.

• Rinse the container or jar you used to brew the coffee and pour the filtered coffee back in the jar. Secure the lid. Refrigerate for up to 14 days.

*Very low acidity, more intense flavor, not astringent, less caffeine and livelier on your palate!
