How to Make Cold Brew in a French Press

Cold brew coffee is less bitter and tastes better for iced coffee because it is up to 67% less acidic. Lower acid allows you to taste all the flavors that you should be tasting in your coffee.

You will probably be surprised at the roasty, chocolaty smoothness you’ve been missing out on when hot-brewing your coffee. Here’s how to make cold brew coffee in a standard 8-cup French Press.

  1. Place 4 ounces of coarse ground coffee in the bottom of the French press.
  2. Gently pour 3 cups of cold or room temperature water over the grounds and gently stir to get all of the grounds wet.
  3. Let the coffee sit for 14-16 hours at room temperature.
  4. Press and strain your cold brew concentrate into a covered jar or vessel and store in your refrigerator.

Iced Coffee Tips

  • Use coffee ice cubes. Prepare a pot of coffee with all the fixings (milk, sugar, etc.). Pour your coffee into ice cube trays and freeze them. Once frozen, store the cubes in a freezer bag. When you’re ready to add ice to your coffee, use the cubes! This is especially good if you’re a slow drinker – nothing gets watered-down.
  • For the ultimate luxurious presentation, place your glass in the freezer for about an hour before making your drink. You’ll get wonderful beaded drops of freezing moisture and frost on the outside of your glass.

    What do I need to change to your iced coffee recipe to make the mocha iced coffee? That is my son’s favorite Dunkin Donut drink. Thought I might give it a try and surprise him.

    Looks so delicious. Dunkin Donuts is my all time favorite. Thanks a lot for its copycat recipe.
    Also, I think cold coffee is less acidic and hence good for health. Moreover, no wasting the leftover coffee:-)
    Thanks once again Stephanie Manley.

  3. Michelle

    I would LOVE it if you could figure out a copykat for the Dunkin Coconut Cream Pie Hot or cold versions! Great posts! So glad I stumbled across your site!:)

  4. Edna

    Loved your recipe Stephanie but I think you should use Ice Cubes of Coffee Power instead of a cooled coffee cup. Just ground your coffee beans and freeze them in ice cubes and then use them in your Iced Coffee. I’m sure you will enjoy the taste.

      Thanks for everything, Stephanie! Recipes are GRRReat! One tip for Iced coffee–as I am an officiato at it—and I ADORE iced coffee! I prepare a pot of coffee with all the fixins( milk,etc) I then take a few ice cube trays and FREEZE it—-Store the frozen coffee-cubes in a Hefty bag in the freezer—and when I’m ready to add ice to my chilled coffee(always use chilled coffee) I use the cubes! Nothing gets “watered-down” The same can be done with tea—altho I put a slice of lemon and or ginger in the cubes prior to freezing! Everyone thinks I’m brilliant—-lol…pretty simple! Again THANKS for your site and CHEERS!
