Start with 12 ounces of coarsely ground coffee, and 7 cups of fresh or filtered water. Add 1 cup of water and 6 ounces of ground coffee into the bottom of the cold brew system container, then slowly pour 3 more cups of water over the grounds. Wait a few minutes, then add the rest of the ground coffee and the last 3 cups of water.
Make sure all of the grounds are wet, then steep your coffee grounds for 12 to 24 hours.
Remove the stopper and let the coffee concentrate flow into the decanter.
To serve, use 1 part coffee concentrate to 3 parts water, milk, or soy. You can adjust the ratios to suit your tastes.
Storage: Once your beans are opened, store them in an airtight container that you keep in a cool, dry place. If you want the beans and your coffee to taste their best, which obviously you do, grind them just before you start brewing.
