A reader of this site sent in her photos and recipe for Starbucks Brezza Blend made as a cold brew, sangria-like beverage (lots of fruit in it). I haven't tried this but the pictures were so stunning and it sounded so delicious that I thought I would share her recipe here. Starbucks Brezza Blend is a new summer seasonal coffee.
To get started, here's what you will need:
- 125 grams of coarsely ground Brezza blend.
- 5 cups of filtered water
- A large mason jar.
To get started:
Weigh out your coffee. (You want to weigh out the 125 grams as a whole bean coffee. Roughly about one and one-third cup of whole bean coffee.) Coarsely grind the coffee. Combine coffee and cold water into mason jar. Stir it to make sure that all of the grounds are saturated. Screw the lid on, and give it a good shake. Now place the jar on your counter (away from the sun) for 18 hours.
After the 18 hours is up, your coffee is ready. Next, strain the grounds from the coffee. Many people will want to use a paper filter to do this. Try using a Chemex paper filter or standard cone paper filter, as used with a Melitta brewer. Once the coffee is strained, add two cups of ice cubes and let the ice coffee rest. While your coffee is resting, you can start slicing your fruits.
