COLD BREW

The Americans are big in size, the Europeans love their complex little gadgets and the Japanese? Well, they adore the simplicity and it shows in every line of the Mizudashi. ‘Mizudashi’ in Japanese literally translates to cold brew. Minimalistic in design, but stylish enough to grab your attention, this pot produces a delightfully concentrated brew that has enough gusto to leave you singing every morning! Also, this is a no fuss, perfect-for-a-lazy-day kind of method that doesn’t involve anything resembling a flame or the stress of remembering brewing times, ratios and temperature levels. Pulling a pot of cold brew right out of the fridge first thing in the morning, ever pictured a better start?

 

Step 1

Grind and take 100 grams of coffee which is a little finer than french press coarseness.

Step 2

Place the coffee into the filter basket and insert it into the Hario Mizudashi glass brewer.

Step 3

Start adding a room temperature water to the grounds slowly making sure you don't overflow the filter basket. Add a total of 1000 mL water.

Step 4

Refrigerate the pot for 16 - 24 hours depending on the desired strength. After the time has elapsed remove the filter basket with grounds.

Step 5

Use cold or hot water to dilute the concentrate to taste (usually a 1-1 or 1-2 ratio of coffee concentrate to water).
