Homemade Cold Brew

By the Lavazza Team 2–3 minutes
Craft your own cold brew from home! This delightful drink comes together easily overnight, and your patience will be well-rewarded. 


Homemade Cold Brew 

¾ Cup - 1 Cup Ground Coffee: We recommend Organic ¡Tierra! for Planet or ¡Tierra! for Amazonia for the smoothest taste 

3-4 Cups of Water 

Simple Syrup

1 Cup Water 

1 Cup Sugar 


Fresh Mint Leves 

Half and half, cream, or any non-dairy substitute of your choice


French Press or Pitcher



  • Add coffee grounds and water to a large pitcher or French Press*.
  • Stir to make sure all the grounds are wet and place in the fridge 12-24 hours to steep.
  • Strain the coffee into a fresh pitcher using a nut milk bag* and discard/compost the grounds. If using a French Press just push down the handle and depose of the grounds once finished.
  • Place back in the fridge to store.


  • Combine the water and sugar in a pot and place on the stove over medium heat. Bring to a low simmer and let cook for about 10 - 15 minutes until the sugar is completely dissolved and the liquid has reduced a bit.
  • Pour into a glass jar (like a Mason jar) and let cool completely.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to a month.


  • Add 3-4 mint leaves to the bottom of a tall glass. With a muddler, back of spoon, or straw, muddle the leaves slightly to release the oils.
  • Add ice cubes to the glass.
  • Add in cold brew coffee to nearly fill the glass.
  • Add in a splash of the simple syrup (or any other liquid sweetener of choice) to the cold brew and stir to combine.
  • Add a splash of half & half, milk, cream, or any non-dairy alternative you prefer, and enjoy!
