How to make Cold Brew Coffee in a Cafetiere

Here's our simple, easy way to make cold brew coffee at home - all you need is a cafetiere! We recommend doing this in the evening so you are ready to serve your cold brew the next morning.

You will need:

Coarse Ground Coffee (Cafetiere Grind is suitable)

A Cafetiere

A bottle or container for storing


1. Measure out your coffee. Use a ratio of 1:8 for 1 part coffee to 8 parts water. We are using an 8 cup cafetiere measuring around 800ml, so will be using 100g of coffee.

2. Fill with Cold Water. Fill you cafetiere with water to the plunge line.

3. Stir Gently. Use a spoon or stirrer to stir gently and ensure all grounds are wet.

4. Let it sit for 12 - 16 hours. Put the lid of the cafetiere on and let this sit for 12 - 16 hours. We recommend that you do not  put this in the fridge. You can leave this on the side.

5. Slowly Plunge. When the 12-16 hours is over, slowly push the plunger down.

6. Decant. To ensure freshness you can decant the coffee into a jar or a glass bottle.

7. Serve and enjoy! Enjoy at your own preference! We love this with lots of ice and cold oat milk.
