How To Be A Barista At Home (Recipe!)

July 24, 2020

For many Canadians (present company included) coffee is an essential part of the day. But, with the temperatures rising, staying cool and caffeinated may call for a different approach to your daily cup.

We’ve teamed up with Dispatch Coffee—an independent Canadian roastery and café chain offers responsible and ethically sourced coffee through online subscriptions—to share a make-at-home cold-brew recipe using the latest coffee innovations and manual brewing methods that are sure to help you beat the summer heat!

Dispatch Cold Brew

Grind 20 tablespoons of coffee to the consistency of breadcrumbs. Place ground coffee in a 1L mason jar or pitcher. Introduce cold water and stir to coat all of the grinds evenly. Cover to prevent fridge aromas from being absorbed into the coffee. Let it infuse for 16 hours. At 16 hours, line a sieve with a paper filter, and rinse the paper filter with some water. Pour the cold infused coffee through the paper filter into another resealable receptacle. Do your best to filter out the grinds when you’re done. You now have a cold brew concentrate. To serve, use one portion of concentrate to one portion of water, milk or milk alternative. Serve in a cup with ice.
