Now that you have all the necessary things to become your own barista, here is a quick recipe you can try for yourself. 
How to Make Cold Brew?
Ah! A hot summer’s day and you are out for some very important work you have to finish. But nothing can comfort you like a beautiful cold brew with your favourite music on! Here is how you make it and enjoy on a scorching hot day. 
To make a cold brew you need to start with grinding your own coffee beans in a jar. But no worries, if you are using ground coffee, just measure it with your coffee scoop, and put it in a jar. To this, add some cold water and keep the jar sealed in your refrigerator for about 20 to 24 hours. 
After a day in the refrigerator, take it out and strain your coffee to another jar. The easiest way to strain your coffee is to pour your coffee over a piece of cheesecloth, or if you have, strain it with the coffee strainer. Straining is an important process, as once you strain it you won’t have any coffee grounds ruining your beautiful coffee experience. 
If you are a fan of the super-strong coffee, you can drink it as it is. Or if you want something a little light, just add some more cold water,
or even cold milk and some ice.
