On the Williams-Sonoma site, I found this awesome video that de-mystifies the process of using a cold-brew system at home. One benefit of making your own is that you can use organic coffee, which would be fantastic (that’s been my only complaint about Grady’s – not organic). I loved watching this guy make the coffee because it looks crazy easy – basically you pour water on ground coffee…and that’s about it. The only caveat is that it has to sit for twelve hours, but that’s no big deal if you just make it ahead. I’ve yet to try the at home cold-brew system because I just wonder if there will be a big enough difference in quality/taste to justify the effort, but I’m starting to think it might be time to at least try out a French press to really up my coffee game.
