Cold Brewed #haitiancoffee recipe

Cold Brewed Haitian Coffee Recipe:

Haitian coffee is ideally suited to make a rich, chocolaty cold brewed coffee with low acidity and malty flavors.  Cold brewed #Haitiancoffee carries notes of chocolate, with a smooth, Guinness-like sensation and a lower acidity than traditional iced coffee.  Plus, you get the satisfaction of employing Haiti’s small producers.

Listen:  cold brew is WORTH the time.


  1. container (plastic, glass, or ceramic)
  2. coarsely ground coffee (medium grind works too)
  3. water
  4. wooden spoon (if container is not sealed tight)
  5. patience (18-24 hours)
  6. cheese cloth or regular coffee filter
  7. The ratio of coffee to water is subjective and depends on personal taste.

A good place to start is to coarsely grind 3/4 cup coffee for 4 cups of cold water—the size of a 32-ounce French press.

You can double—1.5 cups ground for 8 cups water—or even triple — quantities depend on the size of your container.

Grind beans coarsely.  If you only have medium ground coffee – it’ll work.  You may need to filter twice —  but do know:  muddy looking brew is tasty!

Mix well (stir your French press w/ a wooden spoon.  If you’re using a mason jar – close tight & shake).

Let water + coffee set on the counter for 18-24 hours (you’ll find the sweet spot).  

18-24 Hours Later:  straining options:

French Press:  if your coffee was coarsely ground, simply use your press.

Mason Jar or other container:  a cheese cloth works great as does a normal coffee filter.
