French Press Cold Brew

French Press Cold Brew

Cold brew is a favorite of mine through the summer months, but even the rest of the year I will have some of the decaf or adaptogenic variety after a workout or on warmer days.  I use a 4:1 ratio water to grounds.  My preference is Swiss water decaf of organic or high quality, like Four Sigmatic or LifeBoost, but sometimes I go half-caff.  And lately more often than not I will mix it with adaptogenic brews like Rasa Cacao or Original, or even Dirty Rasa, which I much prefer cold brewed to hot and topped with a bit of coconut cream.  It is a fantastic way to take your adaptogens if you choose to, and for me gives me a clean energy in the afternoons.  It is also a lot less expensive than my old adrenal supplements and basically the same thing, but much more enjoyable.
