I'm pretty sure this comes from my life-long habit of penny pinching. Living on a ranch like I have has made me a person who will get by with nothing or, if I really need something, I will figure out how to make it myself.

Rarely do I ever just give in and buy it. I get a big satisfaction out of doing this and have fun in the process.

So when I started seeing cold brew coffee in the grocery stores at an outrageous price, I decided I needed to jump on the bandwagon and see if I could make a good brew myself. It turned out not only could I but that it was super easy!

I will share with you what I found through my trial and error. Mostly trial this time and hardly any error.

First off I had to get some beans and a method to roast them. I had done tours in coffee roasting facilities and always thought, well, how hard can that be?
