BCB: Juliana

Good morning!
I am up bright and early because I have work, but then I’m driving home to have dinner with MY BEST FRIEND THAT I HAVENT SEEN IN TWO MONTHS!

You could say I’m pretty excited. 🙂

Anyway, welcome to yet another episode of Battle of the Cold Brews: Juliana edition.

Juliana edition? That’s right. I made this one myself!

[P.S. Please ignore my messy room… I’m in the slow process of packing it…]

I used 3 tbsp of my Allegro Italian roast coffee in my little French press. I covered it for about 8 hours and then I just pressed the grounds down as if I was making hot French press coffee! Boom. No cheese cloth or filter needed.

I let it refrigerate overnight so that I could taste it this morning.

First off, let me say that it’s interesting how different all the coffee I’ve had so far tastes in general. Solely, I guess, from whatever beans are being used.

Mine isn’t as smooth as the others I’ve tried so far, and it has a little bit of acidity. However, man oh man, mine is dark. 🙂
The coffee I used is so good when I make it hot and black because if how strong it is! That boldness translated well when I cold brewed it.

And you know what else? It was free.

So far, my search for the best cold brew has cost me anywhere from $2.25-$3.50 per cup. Dang son. I just wouldn’t want to spend that every morning!

A month of that could cover a race fee! 😉

Anyway, I am pleased with my cold brew! Now I just need to figure out how to make it in bigger batches!

Love,
Ju
