Top 5 Trendy Summer Drinks
- Cold Brew Coffee
- 1 lb of your favourite CORSE ground coffee (decaf works too!)
- 10 cups of lukewarm water

- 4 mason jars
- Place your coarsely ground beans in the extra large bowl. Add the 10 cups of water.
- Leave at room temperature for ~ 16 hours
- Pour the mixture over the strainer and into the mason jars. Repeat if necessary. The jars now contain concentrated coffee.
- To make the cold brew, add one part concentrated coffee for every 2 parts water. Add ice and whatever add-ins you desire.
The cold-brewed process brings out the more flavour from the beans than any other method!
