How to Make This Recipe
Coarsely grind coffee beans and cacao nibs. Place in a cold brew coffee maker or large mason jar with water. If you have a fine mesh bag, place grounds in that.
Otherwise, you can place grounds directly in the jar and strain it out after brewing.
Brew grounds for 24 hours and strain out grounds. Add sweetener and almond milk, or however you like your coffee.
