What is cold brew coffee? Cold Brew is chilled coffee made from grounds that have been steeped in room-temperature (or cold) water for 12-24 hours (depending on how strong you like it). The eco-friendly Trade Coffee Cold Brew Bags are the key to incredible cold brew. With your favorite coffee grounds, a mason jar, the cold brew bags, and a few hours, you can enjoy a batch of delicious iced cold brew, all summer long. Want to enjoy an even more of a personalized flavor, just add in things like cinnamon, orange peels, etc in the bag. With these wonderful bags, there are no equipment or trips to the coffee shop required, and our favorite part – NO MESS!!

The cold brew bags are an incredibly easy and affordable at-home solution for cold brew coffee lovers. The easy-to-use cold brew bags made of compostable corn-based fibers and offer a cafe-quality beverage at home. Each cold brew bag (full of 3oz of coffee) makes 28oz of ready-to-drink cold brew coffee (or tea – it’s great for loose leaf teas), depending on how strong you like it. That’s about four, 8oz cups (adding 4oz of ice to chill it down) at regular strength. If you choose to dilute the coffee down with filtered water, you’ll, of course, enjoy more cups.
