Grady’s Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate
I am addicted to coffee. I love it. And my secret dream is to open a cool coffee house. I still have time.
In the meanwhile, I try just about every coffee product and coffee gadget I can get my hands on. I came across Grady’s Cold Brew through Fab.com, deal-a-day design inspired website that I have mentioned here before. If you haven’t yet visited or joined Fab here is an invitation.
Grady’s is a “New Orleans–style coffee concentrate that’s brewed and bottled by hand in Brooklyn, New York. Each batch is made by steeping a special blend of freshly roasted coffee and chicory in water overnight, then removing the grounds using a two-step filtration process. What’s left? A bold, velvety-smooth liquid concentrate that can be mixed with milk or water—served over ice or steaming hot.” (from Grady’s website)
The label says it’s an iced coffee concentrate, but you can use it for hot concoctions, too. I’ve tried a few experiments with the stuff, and I like it. It’s a bit pricey ($30 for two 32 ounce bottles + $15 shipping), but worth trying. A single 32 ounce bottle yields 8 servings (if you combine 4 ounces of Grady’s with 4 ounces of milk, water, etc., as they recommend). So, after shipping costs, that’s about $2.80 per drink. Practically coffee shop prices.
Use equal parts cold vanilla-flavored almond milk and Grady’s. Froth the almond milk in a tall glass until it’s creamy (a few seconds using the pictured frother. I got my frother here (Amazon affiliate link) Pour in the Grady’s and stir with a spoon. Add some agave nectar sweetener, if you like. It’s really delicious.
So, check it out. Let me know what you think.
