How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home | Ann-Marie Loves

I’ve been drinking coffee since I started college. It became a daily part of my life during my junior year when I had my first apartment and wanted to be a “real grown up” with her very own coffee maker. The habit has stuck ever since, but it really got kicked into high gear when I had a baby. Suddenly it became my life blood and often the only thing getting me out of bed after a sleepless night (oh, I am not looking forward to another round of sleep deprivation). I’ve gone through many different drink phases, but one thing always stays the same: as soon as the weather heats up, out comes the cold brew! Last year I had a different system for making my own cold brew involving a carafe and cheesecloth, but 2016 Ann-Marie is a much more efficient sis.

Thanks to a recommendation from a good friend and mom of three (girl knows her caffeine!), I purchased the Hario Cold Brew Coffee Maker (only $16!) on Amazon and absolutely L-O-V-E it. I promise I am in no way affiliated or sponsored by this company; I just genuinely love their product and wanted to share!

Not only is it a breeze to make a batch of cold brew using cold water and ground coffee (this is my absolute favorite brand), but the clean up is a piece of cake. I despise anything that involves too many components or dirty dishes, so I am pleased as punch with how efficient the Hario makes my coffee process.

Normally when I make a fresh pot, I’ll let it sit in the fridge for a full day or two so it can really develop a strong flavor. However, in a caffeine emergency, I will pour myself a glass within a few hours of making a batch and be just as happy (wait, did I just lose my coffee snob status?). Chasing a toddler while growing another baby while working from home calls for coffee breaks. Maaaaany coffee breaks ;)

    I lllllove coffee too, even though the past years I only drink decaf. This machine seems like easy peasy! But..doesn’t it get very very strong if you leave it a couple of days in the fridge? Doesn’t the coffee affect you way too much after that? Oh, I saw that you got the “get down to work book”. Could you do a review at some point? I have the Day Designer but was thinking of switching to that next year.
    Thanx a lot Ann-Marie!
    Kisses from sunny Greece :)

      I use a light roast so it never gets too strong for me, but I can imagine a dark roast would be a bit much! I love coffee so much that the caffeine content rarely affects me…thankfully! And yes, I will definitely be blogging about my Get to Work Book soon! xo
