How to Use Old Coffee Beans

So you forgot that jar of coffee beans in the back of the cupboard. All may not be lost. Old, stale coffee beans actually make a very decent cold brew. Make sure the beans are not moldy, of course. If they are simply on the stale side, using the cold brew method will yield a very palatable brew. Also store it in ice cube trays for on-demand iced coffee.

There are various ways to cold brew coffee. Here is the easiest method.

  1. Coarsely grind your favorite coffee beans.
  2. Add the ground coffee to your French Press.
  3. Pour in cold, filtered water. 4 cups of water for every cup of coffee grounds is the rule of thumb. Adapt to your press size.
  4. Set the plunger aside for now. Cover the mouth of the container with plastic film. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours.
  5. Now, plunge as usual and pour. Remember, the cold brew method creates a concentrate. Only fill your cup to about half. Add kettle-heated water to bring it up to temp.
