  • 1 ½ cups coffee beans coarsely ground

  • 7 cups water


  • Combine coffee grounds, cacao grounds, and water in a cold brew coffee maker or large jar. Let steep in refrigerator or on countertop for 18-24 hours.
  • Discard coffee and cacao grounds. If using a jar, pour coffee grounds and cacao nibs through fine mesh bag or cheesecloth into another jar.
  • Add plant based milk and sweetener, if desired.


**Important! If you are gluten free you may want to avoid coffee altogether. I personally have never had a problem drinking it, and I have a gluten intolerance. It is probably because I drink whole bean organic coffee, and grind it myself. I learned that it can be problematic for people who don't tolerate gluten. So I did some research and one article mentioned to try organic whole bean coffee because it isn't highly processed causing cross-reactivity issues. So please do the research yourself, and test it out. I try to only post recipes that are 100% gluten free since I have a gluten intolerance. I am really careful about avoiding gluten in my daily life.
