Jessa (Duggar) Seewald’s Coffee-Making Method Could Be Your New Morning Miracle (VIDEO)
Jessa (Duggar) Seewald has some advice on how to start the daily grind.
Seewald, 23, shared an Instagram video on Thursday with the caption, “Good morning, cold brew!” followed by instructions on her DIY method.
Before brewing, the former 19 Kids and Counting star says she soaks coffee grounds for 12 to 24 hours until it becomes “a coffee concentrate,” which is then mixed with milk or water (hot or cold, depending on your temperature preference).
Besides being fun to watch, there’s a health reason for Seewald’s method: According to her post, this style of cold brew is 60 percent less acidic than “typical, hot-brewed coffee,” and stays fresh (if refrigerated) for up to two weeks.
Good morning, cold brew! 😍 This style of coffee-making soaks grounds on the countertop for 12-24 hrs, and creates a coffee concentrate that you mix–1 part coffee to 3 parts water or milk (hot or cold). Cold brew is up to 60% less acidic than typical, hot-brewed coffee, and it keeps fresh in the refrigerator for up to two weeks! 😋 It's our fav! You can use regular pre-ground beans, or grind your own–preferably medium-course. (haha! And yes, this batch is more "coarse-ground" than normal 'cause I was in a hurry yesterday didn't do a thorough job grinding the beans…😄 but it still tastes FABULOUS!)
“You can use regular pre-ground beans, or grind your own—preferably medium-course,” she wrote. And even though the beans in her video were a little courser than she prefers, she assured that “it still tastes FABULOUS!”
The reality star calls the coffee technique her “fav” — and if she and husband Ben Seewald are truly looking to have 15 sons, this system will certainly come in handy in the future. Scroll down for her recipe so you can do recreate it at home.
I love that cold brew is less acidic/bitter tasting when compared to normal hot-brewed coffee! @ben_seewald thinks it tastes so good that he just adds water, but I'm not that brave! 😝 No black coffee for me! Here's my favorite way to drink it: 3oz cold brew, 9oz milk, and agave nectar to sweeten (around 1 tbsp or so). 😋 Tastes sorta like a vanilla latte! (Since the cold brew is concentrate, it's 1 part coffee to 3 parts water or milk. You can add the water/milk hot, or go for the iced version if that's what you prefer.)
Jesse Seewald’s Cold Brew Latte
3 oz. cold brew coffee
9 oz. hot or cold milk (depending on how you want your coffee)
1 tbsp. agave nectar
Stir all the ingredients together until combined. If using cold milk, pour over ice.
