How To Make Your Own Cold Brew Coffee

Posted by John Boswell on

Summer is here!  And what better way to celebrate than by making your own cold brew coffee?

Sure, a piping hot cup of Premiato coffee is great all year round, but sometimes you just can’t kick those cravings for a refreshing icy drink to guzzle in the sunshine.  

Cold brew has grown in popularity over the years and we can totally see why.  Not only does cold brewing your coffee reduce its bitterness, acidity levels (for a happier tummy) and make for a delicious, creamy drink - It’s also super easy to make yourself.  

Here we’ll take you through exactly how to make your very own Premiato cold brew coffee at home.  And because you may be making coffee for one, or for a bunch of your family and friends, we’ve given you a couple of options too.

Getting started

SINGULAR CUP:  

What you’ll need:

  • Rhino Coffee Gear hand grinder
  • Measuring Spoon
  • Coffee Beans

Load up your Rhino Coffee Gear hand grinder with 17 grams of fresh Premiato coffee beans.  Simply calculate this by using your Aeropress spoon.  Then, rotate the handle to grind your coffee beans until you don’t feel any resistance.  Your ground coffee will fall to the chamber below and be ready for you to take the next step.  The Rhino hand grinder is perfect when you’re making a small amount of cold brew, however can be refilled again and again to make more cups!

MULTIPLE CUPS:  

What you’ll need:

  • Coffee Grinder
  • Coffee Beans

If you have another type of coffee grinder at home or in the office, that will work just fine too.   

And if you have ground coffee beans, of course you can skip this stage and move straight to the next step!

The trick is to keep your beans ground fairly coarse to make the filtration process easier, leaving you with a less bitter tasting coffee.  We suggest using a medium grind for this very reason.

Filtering your coffee

1-4 CUPS:  

What you’ll need:

  • Aeropress Coffee Grinder
  • Ground Coffee
  • Room Temperature Water
  • Coffee Mug

The Aeropress Coffee Maker is perfect to use if you’re making 1-4 cups of cold brew.  Simply grind up more coffee beans with your Rhino Coffee Gear hand grinder each time you want to make an extra serve.  

  1. First you’ll need to remove both the plunger and the cap from your Aeropress chamber.
  2. Then, insert your filter into the inside of the cap and twist back onto the chamber.
  3. Now, stand the chamber on a sturdy vessel where you’ll be storing your coffee.  We suggest a large mug or mason jar.
  4. Pour your ground coffee into the chamber.  Use the ratio of one scoop of ground coffee for each cup.  The aeropress will cater for up to four cups.
  5. Pour your room temperature water into the top funnel until you reach the ‘four’ on the Aeropress.
  6. Press away!

MULTIPLE CUPS:

What you’ll need:

  • Ground Coffee
  • Sealable Mason Jar
  • Room Temperature Water
  • Bowl
  • Sieve
  • Cheesecloth

Cold brewing your coffee without a filtering device is totally doable too and best suited to large brews.  We recommend using a rough 1:8 coffee to water ratio.  

  1. Pour your ground coffee beans into your mason jar
  2. Cover with room temperature water
  3. Stir until well combined
  4. Pour and filter your coffee concoction through cheesecloth into a bowl or saucepan
  5. Place a sieve over your mason jar and pour back through
  6. Repeat as necessary until your brew looks clear

Storing your coffee

Once your coffee has been pressed and you have your desired amount, pour it into an airtight container (such as a mason jar or bottle) and place in your fridge for a minimum of 12 hours.  This will give your coffee time to cool and brew all of those silky, rich flavours.

Serving your cold brew

While cold brew is delicious on it’s own or poured over ice, we also love flavouring ours up with syrups and milk when we’re feeling a little bit fancy.  Contrary to popular belief, you can also serve your cold brew hot for an interesting taste.


We can’t wait to hear how your cold brew coffee turns out!
