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.

Assemble:

  1. container (plastic, glass, or ceramic)
    cold-brew-haiti-coffee
  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.
