Cold brew coffee is great. It tends to have a smoother flavor than hot coffee and you can drink it even on a scorching hot day. But how do you make cold brew coffee when you're not at home? Our Travel 5-Packs are a perfect solution for making cold brew while in the outdoors, at a hotel or Airbnb, or even at the office!
All it takes is some water and one of our Travel 5-Packs, which can literally go with you anywhere. Why is this great? Because now you don't need a separate container or loose coffee grounds to make your cold brew. You can just throw a Travel 5-Pack in your bag and literally have cold brew anywhere.
Here's how to do it:
Kuju Coffee Travel 5-Pack Cold Brew Recipe
Makes 5 cups of cold brew (2.5 cups of concentrate)
1 Kuju Coffee Travel 5-Pack Pouch (your choice of roast)
Open & Fill With Water - Tear open the 5-pack and fill with cold water (preferably filtered) up to the top of the bag, approximately 2.5 cups. As you fill the bag, the filters will float up to the top, but you can just push them back down.
Zip It Up- Zip the 5-pack back up and ensure that there are no leaks.
Give it a gentle shake- After ensuring there are no leaks in the zipper, give the bag a gentle shake or turn to fully saturate the coffee.
Let Sit for 12-24 Hours- Store in fridge or cooler for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours, depending on how strong you like your coffee. If you’re in a hotel, you can use the mini fridge. If you don’t have a fridge or cooler, then you can also leave it out at room temperature.
Mix Concentrate With Water - Since this is a cold brew coffee concentrate, the liquid coffee will be very strong, so when you’re ready to drink, mix 1 part concentrate, 1 part water and 1 part ice.
Good for up to 2 weeks, but tastes best within a few days of brewing.
Cold brew made with our 5-packs is a foolproof way to make delicious cold brew coffee without the need for extra mason jars or ground coffee. And you can do it while you're traveling or on a trip.
