Cold Brew

We’ve talked about cold brew coffee before. The Victor crew loves it! Using the Hario brewer, we were very happy. But alas! Our rather thin glass pot broke. Twice. We had bought a second pot to get this less bitter, less acidic coffee but it, too, broke. So now we have 2 cold brew filters but no pot. We found, although not optimal, we can use a quart mason jar! So by buying a pack of 4 mason jars, we can keep cold brew going ahead of time all the time! Yes! Since cold brew can keep up to a week, I can even have all four jars going as long as I drink them in order. Of course after your 12 hour brewing time, you can use the tight seals that come with mason jars to cover them a little better to keep out the flavors from the refrigerator.

Here is a picture (you can see one of the broken Hario pots in the background.) The filter top doesn’t fit as snugly as we would like but after it’s brewed we use the mason jar top and ring to keep it fresh.
