Coffee Collaboration: Head To Head: Cold Bloom Method

It’s a Brew Off!

On a previous episode of Coffee Collaboration, Carl sent us a cold bloom French Press recipe that we tried and loved. A new challenger, Ian, sent us his recipe and was absolutely sure it was better! We love a good competition, so we brewed up both recipes for Gail to judge.

How did our competitor’s fair?

Check out the full video below to see who brewed it better! Plus, watch Gail be, well Gail, and make a mess as she brews both Ian and Carl’s cold bloom methods.

Ian's Cold Bloom Recipe:

Coffee: 18 grams, finer than drip coffee

Water: 60 grams of cold water

Mix water and coffee before leaving for about 20 hours. Drop the slurry into an AeroPress and top up (to the number 4) with hot water at 195F.

Brew for 10 seconds. Plunge!

Carl's French Press Recipe:

Begin prep for French Press coffee (12 hour wait time). Put the grounds into the press, pour enough water to get all the grounds wet, then add just a splash more water and let sit for 12 hours.

Add your hot water (195F) to the slurry and brew for the normal amount time (about four minutes) and there you have it!
