Make Cold Brew Coffee at home - it's super easy, you do not need any special equipment, and can store it in the fridge for longer too. A smooth Cinnamon Flavored Cold Brew Coffee without any of the acidity and bitterness of hot brewed coffee!EASY - This is an easy recipe to make. And I highly recommend going by weight measurements for this recipe (instead of volume). Weight measurements are recommended for accurate results. There is also an inactive overnight steeping step.
Transfer the ground coffee into a nut milk bag and place the bag in a glass container or jug.
Pour the water cup by cup (over and right through the nut milk bag) to saturate the coffee grounds.
Submerge the nut milk bag in the water and cover the glass container/jug with plastic wrap and keep it in a cool place or in the fridge.
If you're not using a nut milk bag, place the coffee grounds directly in the container and drizzle the water over the coffee grounds in batches, stirring in between to make sure the coffee grounds are completely saturated with water. Cover and keep it in a cool place.
Time it for 8 hours.
After 8 hours, taste the coffee. It should be very strong, but not bitter. If you prefer even stronger coffee, steep the coffee for a further 2-4 hours.
Strain the coffee grounds. If using a nut milk bag - place the bag over a strainer and let the liquid naturally drip down into the same container, and then gently press the coffee grounds to release extra liquid (do not squeeze too hard!). Discard the coffee grounds.
If you are not using a nut milk bag - strain the coffee mix through a wide sieve to remove the larger grounds of coffee.
To remove the smaller coffee grounds, place a fine sieve, or a coffee filter lined sieve over a container and filter the cold brew coffee in batches until all the coffee is filtered.
Store the cold brew coffee covered in a glass jug/jar, in the fridge.
Store for up to a week.

Place the sugar, water and cinnamon sticks in a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar and then let the syrup simmer for about 5-10 minutes until it's slightly syruppy. Remove from the heat.
Let the cinnamon sticks infuse while the sugar syrup cools down.
Remove the cinnamon sticks and store the syrup in a jar, and use as needed.
