Nitro cold brew coffee.

Cold brew Nitro coffee is created from infusing the base cold brew coffee with Nitrogen to provide a rich, creamy head similar to nitro draft beer such as Guiniess. Cold brew also contains significantly more caffeine than hot-brewed coffee. a real energy booster.

Using N2 chargers & the iSi Nitro Coffee dispenser its easy to make Nitro brew coffee without the expensive and comlicated tubes, hoses, gas tanks, kegs, taps keg connectors etc which can ammount to over £1,500 which is a huge cost for the average at home coffee lover.

The bubbles produced from (N2) Nitrogen are smaller than the bubbles created using (Co2) carbon dioxide or (N20) Nitrous oxide. When N2 is infused into the coffee it gives a luxurious mouthfeel and also a sweetness that many drinkers find appealing.

What was once a technique beloved by beer-obsessed homebrewers in the early 2010s is now one of coffee's biggest and most inescapable trends.

Step 1: Weigh 80g of coffee beans on your scale.

Any Veriety will work. You will find that coffee tastes less bitter when steeping in cold water vs hot water.

Cold water fundamentally changes which molecules are extracted from the coffee grounds, which is why cold brew is so smooth compared to regular coffee.

Step 2: We are going to start by grinding 80g of coffee beans. Use any type of coffee beans that you enjoy. Depending on the capacity of the coffee grinder, you may need to grind the coffee in batches. The goal is a coarse grind about the size of sugar granuals

Step 4: Add your 1ltrs of preferably filterd water to your 64 oz Mason jar. Put the lid on it and store it in your fridge to steep for 16-20 hours.

Gently stir the coffee with the water until mixed. The coffee will float to the top, but don’t worry. Just make sure all of the coffee gets wet.

Steeping time is flexible and down to preference. Some prefer 12 hours, Some prefer 18 to 24 hours. Starbucks steep their cold brew for 20 hours. Through experimentation you will find your flavour and preference. Practice makes perfect.

If you accidently steep yours for longer (24 hours +) Your concerntrate might taste much bitter and stronger than it would have. This can be resolved by adding extra water.

Step 5: Pour your mixture of ground coffee and water into the funnel and let it run through the filter. Removing left over coffee granuals.

Depending on the size of your strainer, you may need to strain the coffee in batches. Once strained, Cover and the cold brewed coffee can be refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

At this point you can enjoy your creation as-is or go onto making it even better by adding Nitro.

We can recomend pouring 1/2 cup the cold brew over ice, add 1/2 cup cold water, and stir to combine. Add sweet cream or half-and-half if desired and enjoy.
