  • French Press
  • Coffee Grinder


  • 0.5 cups Ground Coffee coarse
  • 4 cups Water
  • 0.5 cups Plant-Milk we use unsweetened vanilla soy milk
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla pure extra is best!


  • Grind your beans for 15 – 20 seconds. (if you bought pre-ground beans you can skip this step). You want your grounds to be coarse but not so coarse that they cant absorb water.
  • Place the ground beans into your french press (you can use a mason jar too).
  • Pour your water over top of the beans.
  • Put in fridge and let brew for 8 hours or overnight. (minimum of 4 max 24)
  • Press the beans and pour the cold brewed coffee over ice, milk and vanilla.

Pups Notes

  1. Refer to the blog post for full tips and instructions on ratios used! Depending on which receptacle you brew your cold brew in you may need more or less. This fits my french press perfectly but yours may be a different size so just refer to the ratios and you’ll still be able to get the same results!
  2. As with most coffee endeavors you can tweak certain aspects to get different outcomes, so don’t be afraid to play around with the ratios a bit!
