How to Make Cold Brew

If you like your coffee but don’t want the acidity, then cold brew is your way to go! Get a little caffeine kick without the GI punishment. Check out this method How to cold-brew coffee at home Set your coffee grinder to course (or whichever setting makes the grounds look like crumbs). You don’t want the coffee looking murky or tasting too bitter so make sure not to ground the coffee too finely.  Get any large container of your choice that has a lid. You can make as much or as little as you want but an 8:1 water-to-coffee ratio seems to work best. Coffee grounds go in the container first, then cold water on top.  Mix the water and coffee completely by gently stirring. Cover and then steep in the fridge for about 24hrs.  Then, remove the leftover large grounds by straining into a large bowl or extra container. You can either use the remaining grounds for composte to build healthy soil or discard. Strain coffee once more back and forth two or three more times. You know you have a good mix when there is no more foggy residue leftover at the bottom when at the end of your pour.  If you can’t sift out the murky parts it meand your grounds were too fine.  Now pour and serve!  Cold brew is good with ice and whatever you would like to add. Thanks to the low acidity, cold brews will keep for up to a month in the refrigerator. Perfect for a little caffeine with less GI punishment. ...

It was a short time after I graduated with my masters degree, circa 2011, I tried CrossFit for the first time. Just like most “has-been” athletes, I was absolutely hooked on the competitive edge CrossFit brought to fitness. Suddenly, fitness became the goal and I was excited about it. I have proudly competed, trained and found fellowship in CF for 4 years now and it has helped me grow exponentially. Recently, I’ve had a lot of conversations with my friends about CrossFit- the structure, the brand and the programming. They’re pretty sick of sticking a lacrosse ball under their butt and losing valuable WOD time. This was my inspiration to write this article. As a company and a sport, CrossFit has certainly done a phenomenal job giving the fitness world some much-needed color....
