      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. You will need a wide mouthed sterilised glass jar or jug, approximately 1.4L size.

    If you use a different sized jar you will need to adjust the coffee weight to suit. We took a bit of trial and error to get the strength right for us but most articles I've read suggest 1:4 coffee:water.

    Weigh beans into clean, dry Thermomix bowl. Turbo for 1 second, twice. The beans will be chopped but chunky, if the beans are too fine your brew will be gritty and cloudy. If desired you can Turbo again by half a second.
  2. Tip the coffee into the wide mouthed jar/jug. Using the lid of the thermo bowl over the jar will help to avoid any spills.
  3. Fill the jar with cold water (filtered is best but tap works too)

    Put the lid on the jar and place in the fridge for 18-24 hours.

    Strain the coffee through a fine sieve. Strain a, second time through fabric (a nut bag, cheese cloth) or even a paper towel lined simmering basket.

    Pour coffee into a sterilised bottle or jug with a lid, it's ready to use. Will store in the fridge for a few weeks.

    To serve, pour cold brew over ice. Top with milk, cream or drink black. You can add sweetener of choice as well.

The better your coffee beans, the better your cold brew will taste.

If the coffee is too strong, use less beans for your next batch. If not strong enough then add more beans.

To serve I usually have half a glass of cold brew and top with milk.

    I'm curious if anybody ever tried to mix the "sous-vide" cooking principle to this recipe? Instead of 24hrs, heating it at a stable 60oC for 2 hours gives the same result as cold brew (once cooled...) since the chemical process that makes "hot coffee" (more bitter) happens above 65.5oC.
    Hmmm.... You know what, I'll give it a try and come back with the results tmrc_emoticons.)
    .... 3 hours later....
    It worked and taste exactly as it's supposed to be. I turned this in a recipe:
