Mr. Mole and I like to have a pick-me-up drink in the afternoon and I have been trying Cold Brew coffee bags from local and online retailers. They have been good but the price for a 3 oz bag can run from $3 to $12.
Once I figured out that I could do the same cold brew for way less, I got to work.
If you live near a Walmart, you can find this 12 oz bag for $3.50. Yes, that is correct…where can you find good coffee so cheap? It comes in 4 flavors!
Then make a muslin sack and place 3 oz of coffee in it just like the store bought bags. Put a clip at the top open end.
You can weigh the 3 oz or measure out in a cup.
Fill a pitcher/jug with 45 oz of water…or 1.3 liters
Wait 24 hours in the fridge, pop some coffee ice cubes (don’t want to dilute the coffee strength) and preferred sweetener or liquid flavoring and top it with some cream. Remove the bag and dump the contents into your compost bin or wormery and wash the bag by hand in the sink for next time.
You now have enough for 4 large servings per pitcher for the cost of 22 cents each instead of what a coffee shops charge. You can vary the flavors as Walmart offer 4 flavors and you can make it with decaf for less of a jolt.
Time to stop and enjoy…which I have already done by the lowered level of my drink.
She also found this darling pendant too!
Mr. Mole heard me mention that there are some days when I get out of the shower in the morning I just want to roll myself up in the thick Costco towel and crawl back into bed and wait for a servant to bring me some chunks of mango. Well, not having servants, he did the next best thing…he bought me my own bag of fruit!
I’m a lucky mom/wife!!!
I hope all the moms out there had a great day yesterday!
