Cold Brew

Cold Brew Coffee

I am a big fan of coffee and I have the luxury of having access to some of the best coffees in the world. The taste is fantastic and it makes me feel great. Research also has shown that coffee brings many health benefits:

  • Improves performance
  • Antioxidant
  • Improves diabetes and blood sugar management
  • Increases fat burning
  • Positively changes gut bacteria
  • Enhances brain health
  • Lowers inflammation
  • Improves liver health and detoxification
  • Decreases the risk of cancer
  • Lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Decreases levels of oxidative DNA damage

One of my favorite ways to prepare this energizing drink is cold brew, which brings additional advantages:

  • Higher caffeine content
  • Higher polyphenol content
  • It is less acidic than a hot coffee

Most of these benefits come from the polyphenol content of the coffee and research has also shown that the darker the roasting, the lower the polyphenol content, and the higher the content of harmful acrylamides.

Important note:

Coffee is not for everybody. As Lucretius said: One man’s food is another man’s poison.

If coffee doesn’t make you feel good, simply don’t drink it.

I have been asked many times on the seminars and social media about the best way to make it.

Here is the recipe for 4 servings of cold brew:


  • 80 grams of fresh coarse grounded organic coffee (grounded for french press)
  • 800 grams of pure, clean and filtered COLD water


  • Add the coffee to a large french press. I prefer Bodum glass french presses.
  • Slowly add the water
  • Make sure the water and coffee are properly mixed and that there are no crumbs. You can use a wooden spoon to stir it.
  • Cover the french press and slightly press the plunger so the filter is barely covered by the water. This ensures that all the coffee is constantly in contact with the water, so you can have a better estraction process. Don’t press the plunger all the way down as this will stop the extraction process.
  • Leave in the fridge for 5 days.

Enjoy great taste and texture, with all the benefits of this type of coffee preparation.


You can adjust according to your preferences:

  • Amount of coffee/water
  • Time in the fridge

Additional notes:

  • Always buy organic in order to avoid harmful pesticides.
  • Make sure the coffee was roasted recently and it hasn’t been sitting in the supermarket shelves for months. Roasting date should always be in the package.

My coffee providers:

Tourist Coffee is a Colombian company founded by a certified international coffee grader and a barista. They travel throughout the country finding the best and finest existing coffees. They also roast the coffee beans themselves, so all the process is guaranteed to have the highest possible standards. They ship their products to most of the countries in the world.
