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.
- container (plastic, glass, or ceramic)
- coarsely ground coffee (medium grind works too)
- wooden spoon (if container is not sealed tight)
- patience (18-24 hours)
- cheese cloth or regular coffee filter
- 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.
