You like fancy cold brew coffee, but in the traditional way it takes no less than 24 hours. Cold brew is made with cold water and coffee. Due to the low temperature, it takes a very long time to release its taste to the water. The rule is: the colder the water, the longer the extraction time. But if you want to quickly make a nice cold brew, then there is a hack for it and in this blog I will give you this simple truck with a lot of pleasure!

The object that makes all of this possible is a whipped cream sprayer. A bottle from stainless steel on which you can run a gas cartridge. How does it work exactly? By pressurizing the coffee and water by means of gas, the extraction takes place at a much faster pace and you can already enjoy your homemade cold brew within 2 hours instead of having to wait 24 hours.

The ingredients:

  • 100 grams of good quality coffee beans
  • 500 grams of water (preferably filtered water)

The instructions
Grind the coffee relatively coarse (the same size that you would use for a Chemex). Preferably, the grinding size should be 0.75 mm to 1 mm. Here you can find everything about the correct grinding degree of coffee.

  • You can use a "burr-mill" for this (a mill through which the coffee falls). With this type of grinder, the coffee particles remain as even as possible and you get an equal extraction.
  • Add your coffee and water to a 1 liter whipped cream sprayer. Afterwards, put the bottle under pressure by means of 3 whipped cream cartridges (N20). You do this by turning the patterns in turn.
  • Then gently shake back and forth to mix everything well. But don't shake it too hard, as that could cause a blockage in the bottle when the gas is released.
  • Put the bottle in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours you keep the whipped cream spray straight and let the gas escape carefully.
  • Place according to a coffee filter on your drip brewer of your choice (we prefer to use Chemex).
  • Unscrew the cap of the whipped cream sprayer and pour the contents through your coffee filter to separate the sludge from your fresh cold brew coffee.

And clear notes!
Now it's time to enjoy your coffee. Mix the cold brew with water to your desired strength. If you want you can also use (vegetable) milk for this to make a cold brew latte. You can even use hot water to make your own delicious instant coffee.

How much time do you take to make coffee?
If you value good coffee and take all the time for this, then in this case you choose a semi-automatic machine, also known as a BUNN Velocity Brew. With this machine you can adjust the temperature of the water using vacation switch, the quantity and pressure of the water. The most surprising thing about bunn velocity brew is its brewing time. Yes, in just three minutes, you can brew 10 cups of coffee. Read more interesting facts here:

With these machines you have complete control over it. That is fun, but an adventure at the same time. It is more difficult to make consistent coffee (tapping the coffee too hard or too soft leads to differences in taste). During brewing, you learn which factors influence the taste of the coffee. Interesting! But not for everyone.
