    jfmorris that’s awesome …… and I get the issue about cost. I justify to myself that I’m supporting fellow veterans.

    ecowper I've finished a package in the automatic drop machine of "Just Black", and done a half gallon of cold brew using Beyond Black, grinding it course myself. So far I like it - a lot - but gotta figure out if I can justify the additional cost over what we've been buying locally.

    grantgallagher - What is the name of it? We have an Aldi very close and I'm going to start looking for the things they have that interest me.

    Well, can’t wait to hear what you think.

    ecowper I just placed an order for some coffee from Black Rifle - a bag of "Just Black", a bag of "Beyond Black", both ground, and a bag of Beyond Black beans, to grind myself for cold brew. I'm looking forward to trying it and seeing what all the fuss is about. If we like it, I'll setup the subscription, and get it coming on a regular basis.

    If I do that, I am tempted to do the 5 pound bean coffee, but Yvonne doesn't like to grind it if she doesn't have to. So if I have a couple of bags coming every couple of weeks, even pre-ground ought to be pretty darned fresh.

    We used to do black rifle but it was getting pricey. We go through coffee pretty quickly. Discovered a german coffee from Aldi that is both delicious and cheap.

    Black Rifle is excellent. We tried several different beans, buying a pound at a time and finally settled on Beyond Black as our go to

    ecowper I started making cold brew a few years back using the basic technique you outline, as it required no new equipment. One of my kids got me the mason jar with the mesh tube thing for my birthday a couple of years later. I don't think it holds as much coffee as Stacy's technique, and I think you get better extraction from the coffee if it is loose in the water, versus packed tight in a tube suspended in the middle of the water. You've inspired me to get a pound of good beans and try this again. I've been wanting to try some Black Rifle, and haven't done so yet.

    One thing that I just thought about .... if you made the amount of concentrate that Stacy does, you could then strain the grounds out of 4 cups of concentrate at a time using the French Press and not need the cheesecloth method. Do that 3 times and done. Might try that and see how it goes.

  • jfmorris

    I have done exactly that. For cold brew you need it to sit for 8-12 hours. The only drawback in a regular French press is that you typically use a lot more grounds, as the cold brew is usually done at concentrate levels. I suppose you can use the normal amount of coffee though and get cold brew that you don't need to dilute.

    I've got the same type device in the pantry - a big mason jar with a perforated or mesh tube that holds the coffee. I think mine holds 64 or 128 ounces though. I need to go dig it out and whip up a batch.

    well, I think the other answer might be that people that use French Presses are also people that have 22 different ways to make coffee? I honestly don't know .... I do know that Stacy makes 1.5 quarts of concentrate at a time, so a French Press kinda won't do unless she had 3 or 4 of them

  • DeusDingo

    well you can leave it in the french press for 2 months, 2 years, 2 decades before you push down the thingy. i don't think they come with timeouts...water kind of does so maybe not 2 decades

    Thank you, Stacy.
    All I do is put ice cubes in my coffee. EZ-PZ.

    I assume that it is because cold brew needs to be steeped for quite a few hours? Other than that, no idea

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.
