Homemade Mocha Cold Brew



  1. Place coffee beans in your food processor and coarsely grind (this takes approximately thirty seconds or so, but you be the judge).
  2. Transfer the ground beans into a large bowl or pitcher and mix in the cocoa powder and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the warm water over the coffee bean mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Place the bowl or pitcher in the fridge and let sit overnight.
  5. The next morning, stream the mixture through a coffee filter (or use a paper towel in a mesh sieve to speed up the process if you’re impatient like me) to remove the granules.
  6. To serve, fill a glass with ice, pour in the coffee, and add your desired accompaniments (milk, cream, etc.).
  7. Store the remaining coffee in the fridge for up to a week! Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
