Homemade Cold Brew Coffee

This week, we’ve turned the spotlight on Sonoma County’s own Bella Rosa Coffee and slashed prices on all things Bella Rosa! This family owned and run company has deep roots at Oliver’s Markets – in fact, all the coffee we serve in our bakeries is Bella Rosa. Cold brew is surprisingly easy to make at home, and with Bella Rosa’s low-acid coffees, you’re in for a real treat. Cold brewing produces coffee that lacks the bitterness of its hot cousin, and the slow soaking process extracts every drop of precious caffeine from the beans! We’ve made this version Bella Rosa’s Roaster’s Reserve coffee, but try it with their other coffees as well!

*Prices valid through 11/19/19.

  • Serves: 8 cups
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 18-24 hours


  • 2 c. Bella Rosa Roaster's Reserve Coffee Beans
  • 8 c. Filtered Water


  1. Grind coffee beans in batches until grounds resemble raw sugar; you want a very coarse grind. Combine water and coffee grounds in a large jar, stirring to incorporate, then cover tightly with a lid.

  2. Allow coffee to steep in the fridge for 18 to 24 hours. To strain, line a fine mesh strainer with a cheesecloth and slowly pour the cold brew through the strainer into a separate jar. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

  3. Serve over ice; for a less concentrated coffee, add 1/2 cup of water.
