Practice the art of Cold Brew

Recording-CameraVisit www.brim.coffee for easy to follow step-by-step video tutorials. Coffee aficionados, it is time to talk about Cold Brewed coffee! If you didn’t know or haven’t heard, it is pretty wonderful. If you are not a fan of the acidic and bitter taste of drip coffee, then Cold Brew is for you. It has a deeper, less acidic and more subtle taste, so you can skip the sugar. It is also more concentrated than conventionally-brewed coffee so a little bit goes a long way. To make an authentic cold brew coffee, you need the perfect kit. The BRIM Smart Valve Cold Brew Maker yields smooth, rich and naturally sweet results.

Cold Brew Coffee

Cold-Brew-Coffee

  1. Add Filter: Place the brewing container onto a flat, clean surface. Moisten an Easy-Grab Tab filter with water and insert into the bottom of the brewing container. Make sure the tab is facing up for easy removal.
  2. Add Coffee: Add 12 oz. of fresh coarsely ground coffee beans to the brewing container.
    You can easily find pre-measured 12oz bags of coffee at your local coffee shop or grocery store.
    We recommend medium roast, single origin coffee beans. Shake the brewing container  lightly to level the coffee.
  3. 1st Pour: Fill the glass decanter with filtered, room temperature water to the water level mark (3-1/2 cups). Working from the center out to the edge, slowly pour water in a spiral motion over the ground beans. Saturate ALL coffee grounds.
  4. 2nd Pour: Refill the decanter to the water level mark (3-1/2 cups) with filtered room temperature water. Slowly pour water over the grounds in a spiral motion from the outside of the filter to the center. Use the back end of a spoon to press any floating grounds down into the water, making sure all coffee is submerged.
  5. Wait: Add the lid to the brewing container and allow the coffee to cold brew at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours.
  6. Transfer: Place the Glass Decanter on a flat, clean surface. Rest the brewing container collar over the lip of the glass decanter. Filtered cold brew coffee concentrate will begin to drip.
    The dripping process can take up to 30 minutes to finish and it will yield approximately 5 cups of coffee concentrate.
    NOTE: To STOP the flow of coffee concentrate, simply lift to remove the brewing container collar from the glass decanter. When the brewing container is replaced, dripping will resume.
  7. Grasp the brewing container collar and lift to remove from the glass decanter. Dispose of used grounds and rinse well.
  8. Pull out the reusable Easy-Grab Tab filter. Rinse and dry. See Care & Cleaning Instructions for detailed cleaning procedures.
  9. Cover the glass decanter with its lid and refrigerate. Coffee concentrate can be covered and stored for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
  10. Enjoy! To serve, dilute coffee concentrate to your preference. A 1:3 ratio is recommended for a 5 oz. serving.
  • 1.25 oz. (1/3) coffee concentrate plus
  • 3.75 oz. (2/3) water, milk, or other liquid

Concentrate can be used hot or cold for artisanal beverages. For hot coffee simply add boiling water to the concentrate. Serve over ice for cold beverages.

NOTE: For stronger coffee, use a 1: 2 or even a 1:1 ratio, concentrate to water, milk, or other liquid to suit your taste.

    in a spiral motion over the tea leaves. Saturate ALL of the tea leaves.
  4. 2nd Pour: Refill the decanter to the water level mark (3-1/2 cups) with filtered, room temperature water.

Hints for Great Tasting Cold Brew Coffee & Tea

  • Always use fresh, filtered room temperature water in your Cold Brew Coffee Maker.
  • To avoid clogging the cold brew filter, make sure beans are COARSELY ground & NEVER shake the brewing container or agitate the grounds during the brewing process.
  • If the flow of concentrate is weak and the filter is clogged before full extraction is completed, using the rounded, blunt end of a butter knife, gently scrape the top of the filter clean. Be careful not to agitate the coffee grounds.
  • Use simple sugar syrups to sweeten your cold brew coffee and tea. Use a 1:1 ratio, sugar to water; bring to a boil. Stir constantly until all sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.
  • For best flavor and performance, cold brew filters should be cleaned and dried after each use.
  • IMPORTANT! NEVER USE SOAP to clean any Easy-Grab Tab filter.
  • Store coffee beans or ground coffee in a cool, dry place. Once coffee has been opened, keep it tightly sealed in the refrigerator or freezer to maintain freshness.
  • For optimum coffee flavor, buy whole beans and coarsely grind, just before brewing.
  • Do not re-use coffee grounds, or tea leaves since this will greatly impair the flavor.
  • Coffee or tea concentrate will keep at least 2 weeks in the covered glass decanter when refrigerated.
  • 5 cups (1250ml) of coffee concentrate can produce up to 32 (5-oz) cups of coffee when diluted with other liquids.
  • 5 cups (1250ml) of tea concentrate can produce up to 53 (5-oz) cups of tea when diluted with other liquids.
  • Use coffee or tea concentrate to make ice cubes for future iced coffee or tea drinks.
  • Coffee or tea concentrate is great to use in recipes calling for strong brewed coffee or tea.
