Primula Burke Cold Brew Coffee Maker Instructions
COLD BREW COFFEE INSTRUCTIONS
Place ground coffee beans in the brew ﬁlter. For best results, use fresh roasted, coarsely ground coffee. The carafe is designed to hold 40 oz. water and 16 tbsp. of coffee with the brew ﬁlter in place.
Insert brew ﬁlter inside carafe and slowly pour 2 cups of water over coffee to dampen. Once coffee is damp, slowly ﬁll the remainder of the carafe with water to cover grounds or up to the top of the windows in the brew ﬁlter. Be careful not to overﬁll carafe with water. Once carafe is full, stir grounds until fully saturated with water.
Tighten lid and place in refrigerator to cold brew for 24 hours. For ultimate ﬂavor extraction, stir grounds during brewing process.
Remove brew ﬁlter from carafe. Easily screw off bottom to release used coffee grounds. Always remember to remove ﬁlter before pouring coffee.
To enjoy the best cold brew coffee, creamer (or cream substitute), sugar and ice can be added to taste. Cold brew coffee stays fresh in the fridge up to 14 days.
Cold Brew Method Cold Brew Method is extracting sweet ﬂavored, low acidic coffee through brewing in cool water over a period of 24 hours. Cold brew coffee is on average 65% less acidic than traditional hot brew coffee. Cold brew coffee is naturally sweeter than hot brew coffee.
Tip 1 If grounds escape from the mesh brew ﬁlter due to accidental overﬂow, the brew ﬁlter can be used to ﬁlter the coffee. After brewing is complete, pour coffee into a clean brew ﬁlter to pass through the ﬁlter a second time; this will remove any excess grounds. Easily double ﬁlter directly into a cup or transfer the entire batch into another clean pitcher to enjoy later.
Tip 2 Cold brew coffee may be served iced or hot. Pour over ice and add milk or soy to taste. Or just warm for a few seconds in the microwave (in a microwave safe container) and enjoy hot, robust ﬂavor with low acidity.
