Overnight cold brew guide

Nothing pairs better with a hot summer day than cold brew coffee.

Cold brew is smooth, easy to prepare, and contains a higher concentration of caffeine compared to regular iced coffee or an iced americano. This method results in a cup that both cools you down in the July heat and keeps your energy high for all of your favorite seasonal activities.  


Overnight Cold Brew 

Makes 64 oz. (Roughly 8 Servings) 

Tools and ingredients:

  • 64 oz. Mason Jar 

  • Reusable cold brew filter. (We used the CoffeeSock ColdBrew Filter, available here: ).

    • Alternative Method - Use a fine mesh nut milk bag in place of a filter, and a funnel if needed.

  • 2 cups of coarsely ground Ruta Maya Coffee. We use a 50/50 mix of Dark and Medium Roast.



  • If using a new reusable coffee filter or mesh bag, make sure to follow the cleaning and preparation instructions included with the product.

  • Place the ground coffee into the filter or bag and place the bag inside of the 64 oz. empty jar. Wet the dry coffee and let sit for 30 seconds. This is a process called “blooming,” which is necessary to maximize flow and to avoid dry sockets, and weak brew.

  • Alternative Method - Pour coffee grounds directly into the 64oz. empty jar.

  • Pour filtered water over the coffee and into the jar in a slow, steady stream. 

  • If using a CoffeeSock cold brew filter, close the filter by gathering the top of fabric together, wrapping the strap around the gathered neck of the filter, and pass through the attached ring.

  • Alternative Method - Pour water directly onto the coffee grounds, without the use of a filter or bag, (you’ll use this later.)

  • Allow the coffee to steep for 12-16 hours at room temperature.



Homemade Cold Brew




  • Remove the coffee grounds from the jar once the steeping period is over, and your cold brew is ready to enjoy.

  • Alternative Method - Pour cold brew and grounds through your fine mesh bag directly into a pitcher, or place a funnel over a separate jar and place a fine mesh bag on top, and pour coffee though.
