Nitro cold brew coffee.

cold brew Nitro coffee is made by infusing cold brew coffee with nitrogen to create a rich, creamy head similar to that of nitro draught beer like Guinness. Additionally, cold brew coffee contains a significant amount of caffeine compared to hot brewed coffee. 

Using Nitro chargers and the iSi Nitro dispenser, it's simple to make Nitro brew coffee without the need for expensive and complicated tubes, hoses, gas tanks, kegs, taps, and keg connectors, all of which can cost upwards of £1,500, a small fortune for the average at-home coffee aficionado.

The bubbles formed by (N2) Nitrogen are much smaller than those formed by (Co2) carbon dioxide or (N20) nitrous oxide. When N2 is infused into coffee, it exerts a luxurious mouthfeel and an appealing sweetness to many drinkers.

What was once a technique favoured by beer-obsessed homebrewers in the early 2010s has evolved into one of coffee's most significant and inescapable trends.

We're going to share our nitro cold brew recipe with you in this post.


How to make cold brew coffee.

Suggested Items needed:

  • 2 X 64 oz mason jar (Or 2.5~ ltr containers)
  • Coffee grinder
  • Funnel
  • Coffee filter paper
  • 80g coffee beans
  • 1ltr of water (Ideally filtered water)
  • iSi Nitro whip
  • iSi Nitro chargers


This guide will walk you through the process of creating nitro cold brew coffee at home in just a few simple steps! This is the initial step toward creating delectable nitro cold brew coffee.

You are welcome to shop around for comparable products. The procedure is identical if you choose to use different items such as funnels, containers, or other similar items!

Step 1: On your scale, weigh 80g of coffee beans.

Any Verity will work properly. You will notice that cold water steeped coffee tastes less bitter than hot water steeped coffee.

Cold water alters the molecules extracted from the coffee grounds fundamentally, which is why cold brew is so smooth in comparison to regular coffee.

Step 2: We'll begin by grinding 80 g Utilize whatever type of coffee beans you prefer. Depending on the capacity of the coffee grinder, grinding the coffee in batches may be necessary.

The desired result is a coarse grind approximately the size of sugar granules.

Step 3: Fill your 64 oz Mason jar halfway with coarsely ground coffee beans.

Step 4: Fill your 64 oz Mason jar halfway with 1 litre of preferably filtered water. Cover it and place it in the refrigerator to steep for 16-20 hours. This process can be accelerated by using our recipe for cold brew rapid infusion.

Gently stir the coffee and water together until well combined. Although the coffee will float to the top, do not be concerned. Simply ensure that all of the coffee is wet.

Steeping time is entirely subjective and dependent on personal preference. Certain individuals prefer 12 hours, while others prefer 18 to 24 hours. Starbucks' cold brew is steeped for 20 hours. You will discover your flavour and preference through experimentation. Perfection is achieved through practise.

If you steep yours for an extended period of time (24 hours or more), your concentrate may taste much bitter and stronger than it should. This can be corrected by adding additional water.

Step 5: Pour the ground coffee and water mixture into the funnel and allow it to pass through the filter. Removing any remaining coffee granules.

You may need to strain the coffee in batches depending on the size of your strainer. Once strained, cover and refrigerate the cold brewed coffee for up to 2 weeks.

At this point, you can either enjoy your creation as-is or improve it further by adding Nitrogen.

We recommend pouring 1/2 cup cold brew over ice, followed by 1/2 cup cold water. If desired, top with sweet cream or half-and-half and serve.
