How to Cold Brew Coffee Recipe

Yield: 4 cups
Active Time:


1 cup Thrive Market Organic French Roast Whole Bean Coffee, coarsely ground
4 cups water


In a 6-cup French press coffeemaker, remove plunger. Add coffee grounds and water; stir until thoroughly mixed. Place plunger on top of the French press (but don’t plunge yet) and store in refrigerator for a minimum of 12 hours. Remove French press from refrigerator and slowly press down on the plunger to push all the grounds to the bottom. Heat or enjoy over ice, diluting with water or creamer as desired.
