  • Step 4

    Let the coffee steep at room temperature for 12-24 hours depending on your preferred coffee strength. The coffee that I tend to make is brewed for 24 hours. However, I like my coffee stronger than most people do, and I have observed that 16-18 hours is most people's preferred brewing time. After it has been brewed to the desired strength, remove the grounds from the cold brew maker, dispose of them, and then place the cold brew in the refrigerator where it can be stored for up to two weeks in an airtight cold brew pitcher.

  • Step 5

    Get a cup and add 8 oz of cold brew as well as some ice. Then, add sugar and International Delights S'mores Coffee Creamer to taste. To begin with, I recommend a splash of the creamer — which equates to about 1 tablespoon of creamer. You may want a bit more or less depending on your preference.
