Cold Brew Latte Recipe
- As promised here is the recipe I use for my cold brew lattes.
- They taste amazing.
- Big sellers during the summer and of course, do not require any power!!! :)
- Beans: So, I use a dark roast. I prefer Ethiopian roasted between FC+ and Vienna. So, dark and oily.
- Grind: Fine. We set to "Auto" on our grinder. It's the same grind setting I use in my drip coffee.
- Filter: Toddy Commercial Cold Brew Filters 5 gallon
- Ratio: 1:5 to make the concentrate. So 80 oz of beans to 400 oz of water. Time: 24 hour extraction.
- ^^^^ This is for cold brew latte concentrate. Don't confuse with my cold brew. They are different grind/bean/extraction times.
- Once I have my concentrate, I use that to create the lattes:
- 65 oz of concentrate,
- Added to 1 gallon of milk,
- Added to 16 oz of syrup (but experiment here and find out what you like)
I put this whole thing on ice in a beverage dispenser. We transport it in milk gallons. The same milk gallons I used to make the drinks. Once we get to our destination. I pour it over ice in a beverage dispenser. And serve it (again over ice: in the cup).
So a few notes: When you make these, it's good to have an extra milk gallon container. When you add the cold brew, milk and syrup together, it will come out to 1.5 gallons. So, the extra container helps.
Also, when you pour it into your beverage dispenser, it will go over ice to keep it cold (cold temp holding). When you do this, you water the product down. So use enough ice to chill the drink but not so much that it's watered down. We make the drink a bit strong to over compensate for this, but you should be mindful of it.
