I recently purchased this 1-quart maker from Amazon and have been making it non-stop. But if you don’t have a cold brew maker — see our post on How to Make Cold Brew Coffee.

Cold Brew Coffee Maker: In this BPA Free Cold Brew Coffee maker, I fill the internal filter about halfway up with coarse ground coffee beans. Then add water almost to the top. After refrigerating the cold brew overnight, it’s ready to drink!

Tall Glasses: Oh — and my favorite glass for cold brew can be found at Target. It’s a Joanna Gaines Hearth & Hand 16-ounce clear glass. You can see it here.

Coffee: Any kind of coffee works fine, but I like to grind my own beans to produce a coarse grind. A coarse grind will filter the coffee easier and produce a less bitter taste.

Vanilla Syrup: Any will do. In fact, I’ve been making my own. It keeps for quite a while in the refrigerator. When I’m out — it’s easy to pick up a Starbucks Vanilla Syrup.

How to Make Iced Cold Brew Coffee with Homemade Vanilla Creamer
