6 Ultra-Easy Tips for Your Tastiest Cold Brew Ever

Take your cold brew to the barista level with these one-ingredient recipes!

by Team Trade | August 19, 2019

It doesn't take much to make delicious cold brew: a coffee you love, Trade Cold Brew Bags, and a container to brew it in. But just because expert cold brew is easy to perfect, that doesn't mean there isn't room to experiment with your recipe from there!

While cold brew coffee cocktails and mocktails are a fun twist on the classic, you don't have to break out an arsenal of ingredients to shake up your cold brew routine. These quick one-ingredient add-ins put a fresh spin on your brew any time you're in the mood.

Tropical Cold Brew

Maintaining your standard ratios, replace the tap water in your recipe with coconut water for a tropical twist on a classic!

Coffee Recommendation Quills Southern Gothic ($16.50)

Fruity Cold Brew

You can also infuse water with the summer fruit treat you like best — watermelon, blueberries, peaches, and cucumber, to name a few. To do so, strain out the fruit and brew your cold brew with the infused water for a cold brew with a hint of something special.

Coffee Recommendation DOMA Dominic's Organic Cold Brew Blend ($17)

Cold Brew Soda

Brew your cold brew concentrate and add mineral water (we recommend Topo Chico) to taste, for a bubbly cold brew soda! 

Coffee Recommendation Gimme! Stargazer ($17.65)

Citrus Cold Brew

Add citrus peels to your cold brew bag (grapefruit, orange, and tangerine work exceptionally well) for an added citrusy pop in your cold brew.

Coffee Recommendation PT's Cold Front Signature Blend ($16)

Spiced Cold Brew

Add spices like cinnamon stick, star anise, cardamom pods, and/or clove to your cold brew bag to infuse your concentrate with fun spices. This one makes for easy cleanup, too!
