Cold Brew Guide

Cold Brew!!


Cold brew involves using cold water to brew ice coffee. The coffee beans are soaked in cold water and brewed for several hours. It results in a smooth, less acidic and highly caffeinated cup of coffee.


Cold Brew is a great way of stocking up on ice coffee during the summer. You can make a large batch and keep in the fridge for a week. It differs to regular ice coffee as it brings out the chocolate and caramel notes of coffee. It goes great with milk and syrup or just as it is!

100g (3.5oz) Buena Vida Coffee Cold Brew Coffee Beans • 1000ml (33.8oz) cold water • Paper filter • Jug • Cup • Fridge

TIPS!! Cold brew is forgiving when it comes to brewing time. Don’t worry too much about it. If you miss by a couple of hours, it is okay! If your cold brew is too strong, you can always dilute it with extra water at the end.

STEP 1 Place 100g(3.5oz) of Buena Vida Cold Brew Blend or your favorite Buena Vida Coffee beans into your container.
STEP 2 Pour in 1000ml (33.8oz) of filtered cold water into your container.
STEP 3 Stir & Mix. This will help all the beans soak into the water for greater extraction.
STEP 4 Place a lid onto of your container and then put in the fridge for 8 hours. You can make this before you sleep and it should be ready when you wake up!
STEP 5 After 8 hours, mix one more time. This is important as it will help with filtering the cold brew.
STEP 6 Using any paper filter you have, slowly filter the coffee into another container.
STEP 7 Taste the cold brew as it is. If it is too strong, you can dilute it with some water or add milk. 
STEP 8 Enjoy! Cold brew is perfect to enjoy on a hot summer day! It’s very convenient to have as you can keep it in the fridge for a week.
