Ah, the UK Summer. As soon as the temperature threatens to reach the middle 20s, the country's in chaos. People searching for any vessel big enough to use as a makeshift paddling pool, others slapping on suncream (because we cannot burn in the UK?!) and others staring in bewilderment at the price of a 99 Flake..

And somehow, a scalding hot cup of coffee doesn't quite seem the ideal drink. So here we have 3 tips and tricks to make Cold Brew at home with our usual CRU Kafe coffee (okay, granted one isn't technically cold brew)! So now you can get your caffeine hit, no what the temperature is.

 

    Option I - Nespresso Compatible Capsules

    Makes 1 cup of coffee - perfect for when you need a quick, cooling caffeine-kick.

    What You Need

      • 3 large ice cubes
      • 1 CRU Kafe Coffee Capsule

    How to Brew

    Simply pour a short shot of espresso (around 40ml) into a glass over your ice cubes. Once done, top up with cold water to your desired level.

    For this, we recommend either our Dark Roast or Espresso capsules, but any of our coffees would work just fine.

    Option II - Coffee Bags

    Serves 4 - you'll need 24hrs for this, so make it in advance. For more people, just adjust the ingredients below.

    What You Need

    How to Brew

    Simply pop the coffee bags into the jug, fill with water, cover, and leave in the fridge for 24 hours. You'd probably be okay drinking this at around the 15hr mark, but to get the real cold brew experience - and flavour - leave it for the full 24 hours.

    Option III - Ground Coffee

    Serves as many as you want - just use the rule of thumb of around 150-200ml of water per cup, use the ratio below and you'll be blown away...

    What You Need

    How to Brew

    To begin, simply add cold water to ground coffee, usually at a ratio of 1:8, and stir gently. Leave this to steep in the fridge for 18-24 hours, we promise it will be worth it! After what might seem like forever, strain the coffee to remove any grounds that still remain. Add ice, milk or sugar to taste if necessary.
