INTRODUCTION TO COLD BREWING

COLD BREWED COFFEE AND TEA

The classic cold brew coffee brewing method uses coarsely ground coffee steeped in cold water over a period of 12-24 hours. This no-heat brew method produces a smooth, balanced flavor that’s less bitter.
Cold brewed tea is steeped in cold water over a period of 4-12 hours.
For tea, your package may have recommended brew times, but a general guideline is 4-6 hours for green and white teas, and 8-12 hours for black and oolong teas.
For best results, use coarsely ground coffee or loose-leaf tea leaves.
If you have a kitchen scale, you can use the chart below to determine how much coffee or tea to use. Or, use the coffee fill guideline on the steeper (see at left) as a rough guide when making coffee.

COFFEE AND TEA CONCENTRATE DOSAGE GUIDE

Coffee

9 oz (250 g) Coarsely ground coffee + WATER

42 oz (1.25 L)

Tea

4 oz (120 g) Loose-leaf tea

* Example of recommended coarsely ground coffee. If using the KitchenAid Burr Grinder, use settings 1-3.

USING THE COLD BREW COFFEE MAKER

BREWING

IMPORTANT: Before using the Cold Brew Coffee Maker, wash all parts by hand in warm, soapy water, making sure to rinse and drain the coffee tube before use. Dry thoroughly. To avoid damage, do not wash in the dishwasher.

  1. Turn the tap to the LEFT to make sure that the tap is CLOSED.
  2. To assemble: Place the outer lid on the brew jar; insert the steeper. Make sure steeper handle is lying flat.
  3. Scoop coffee or tea into the steeper.
    See the “Coffee and Tea Concentrate Dosage Guide” for the right amount of coffee or tea to add.
  4. Pour 34 oz (1 L) of cold water over the grounds, using a circular motion.
    Pause to allow grounds to absorb water, then pour in an additional 8 oz (250 mL) water.
  5. Press down the grounds or tea leaves, making sure they are covered by the water. Put on the lid. Brew in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
    See “Introduction to Cold Brewing” for the recommended brew times.
  6. After brewing, remove lid; use the handle to lift the steeper and rest it at an angle on the brew jar. Allow to drain for 3 minutes, then change the angle and drain for another 2 minutes.
  7. Remove the steeper. Compost or discard the used grounds. Wash the steeper according to the “Care and cleaning” directions.
  8. Replace the steeper lid on the brew jar and store the concentrate in the refrigerator.
  9. To dispense concentrate, turn the tap to the right.

  1. Clean all parts of the Cold Brew Coffee Maker by hand only. Rinse coffee residue from each part. Wash with warm, soapy water, then open the tap and run warm water through until tube and tap are empty. Dry each part with a dry, soft towel.
