  • Water fill pitcher most of the way
  • 1 cup ground coffee French Vanilla or flavor of choice
  • 3/4 cup half & half or creamer of choice
  • 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice optional


  • Fill your 2 Quart cold brew pitcher almost to the top with water (leave enough space to add filter back to it and not overflow).
  • Add 1 cup of coffee grounds to the coffee filter. Screw the lid onto the filter and insert it back into the water. Screw the top lid on tightly.
  • Let cold brew sit in the refrigerator overnight or about 12-18 hours. You can either let it sit upright or on its side. Shake it well before serving.
  • Pour cold brew over ice, preferably in an insulated cup.
  • Add creamer and/or sweetener to cold brew if desired. Enjoy!
  • Note: we leave the coffee grounds in the filter until the pitcher is empty, then discard them and rinse well. We do run it through the dishwasher every couple batches, as it is dishwasher safe.
