The BEST Cold Brew Iced Coffee


1 ½ Cups of ground coffee

3 Tbsp. of ground cinnamon

6 Cups of water

Pour ingredients in to large glass jar.  Stir well, soaking all of the grounds and mixing up the cinnamon.


Cold Brew Mix

Let stand in your refrigerator for 18-24 hours.  We always make a double batch so that we don’t run out of our precious cold brew.  There is a distinct taste difference if you don’t wait the allotted time.

You will need to strain the coffee from the jar.  We use a real filter with an added paper coffee filter placed inside for double the straining power.  We prefer the smooth taste with two filters- but you can definitely use the filter out of your coffee pot, a paper filter, or a french press.


Coffee Cup Convert

We use mason jars as glasses in our house.  Did so before Pinterest was invented…

Fill up your glass with ice.  


Pure Cold Brew Coffee

Pour the cold brew coffee over your ice.  Enjoy.


The Winning Combination

For those with a sweet tooth add in your favorite creamer– my favorite is Sweet Cream-all natural and delicious!


Bliss in a Jar

Stir & Enjoy!

As we head into the summer months this has become our morning favorite!  But I am pretty sure I am a full-blown cold brew coffee convert.  It tastes perfect.  Plus, this saves us a TON of money on fancy drinks that we used to buy elsewhere.  Now we make better tasting coffee at home.


What is your favorite coffee add-in?  Or do you prefer unsweetened cold brew?

Have you tried making cold brew coffee before?


Let me know if you have any questions!  Would LOVE to hear from you!

  1. Oh my gosh, this reminded me how much I love a cold brew coffee and that I should make it again. I’ve always made mine in a similar fashion, but never added cinnamon…yum!!

    • Thanks Charissa- it took us awhile to figure out just how much cinnamon to put in our Cold Brew Recipe and we love how it turned out! Great way to wake up in the morning!

  2. I’m obsessed with Cold Brew Coffee. I was spending a FORTUNE at our local coffee shop, so my husband recently bought me a cold brewing system. It’s good, but not the same. {I wouldn’t tell him that.} Now I must try your recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Krista! We were doing the same at the Farmer’s Market and paying WAY too much money… so thankful this recipe tastes just as(if not more-because of the savings) delicious! Woohoo! Cold Brew Coffee for the win!

  3. I just tried this recipe and WOW! It is so much better than hot brewed coffee. I did some searching and it seems Cold Brew style gives you double the caffine and doesn’t burn off the cancer fighting good stuff! Consider my life changed
