    I make my own almond and coconut milk. I was using a flour sack towel because I find most milk nut bags to be flimsy or too small. Not the case here. I was truly surprised at how all of the coconut fit into the bag but even better was how the milk just poured out without having to apply much pressure to the bag at all. After emptying the bag, it cleaned up extremely well and easily. I always have to rinse the towels and throw them in the wash after getting out all of the fiber. Not with these, under the faucet and it was good to go. Highly recommend.

    We launched a boycott against our local gas/convenience store with really good, cheap (99c) iced coffee when they brought in a manager with a bad attitude who chased off all the good help and customers. I love Starbucks, but I don’t want to drive 20 minutes and spend $6 each day through the summer on a couple of iced coffees. So we sought out a way to make delicious iced coffee at home using the cold brew method.

    We tried a french press, but even a large press would only make so much quantity and I would have had to press every other day… Like you, I have only 24 hours in a day and I still have to find time to floss, brush, shave, etc.
    We tried just dumping the grounds into a 2qt pitcher with cold water and straining it through a wire mesh strainer into another 2qt pitcher, but I ended up going through 5 basket filters (as each one because clogged with grounds) and about 2 hours to get 2qts of coffee strained out.

    Enter the Finest Nut Milk Bag 12×12!! For just a few bucks, we picked this up and haven’t had to worry about iced coffee since! We go to Market Basket, who sells their house brand whole beans for about $4/lb (if we wanted fresher, there are local roasters for about $10/lb but we like the MB Hazelnut and love the price). Do you want to learn how to cold brew delicious coffee concentrate in large quantities on the cheap using this nut milk bag? Here goes:

    – I use a standard coffee/spice grinder (please only choose one use for your grinder unless you want all of your food to taste like a mole` or your coffee to be chai-infused) and get 7oz (by weight) of beans to a rough grind, just chunkier than what I would expect out of a pre-ground can of Folgers).
    – I dump the ground coffee into this nut milk bag and close the top.
    – I dip the bag into a gallon plastic container with 3qts (that’s three-quarters full for those without tick-marks on the side of their gallon jug. This is the only time that US measurements make sense is with quarts/quarter-gallons. I’m all for independence, but good gravy! Why can’t we all just use the mathematically-correct metric system?) like a giant tea bag, giving it several good dunks to wet the coffee and ensure that it doesn’t float on top.
    – I put the lid on the container and place the whole thing in the fridge overnight… sometimes I even do this on one morning and leave it in until the next morning, despite the cries of java-snobs everywhere who claim that 11.2 hours is the perfect amount of time. Don’t buy the hype; just go with what makes your life livable. You know those coffee connoisseurs don’t have a real job like you do, right???
    – When I’m good and ready to have my iced coffee (take that, Baristas!), I take the container out of the fridge and give the big nut milk bag a few more good dunks. Then I pull the bag out of the container and hold it over the iced coffee for a minute or so to let the juices drain out.
    (Important note here – I used to squeeze the juices out but then I had a 1/2 inch (That’s ~12.7mm for those Imperial purists out there) layer of sludge at the bottom of the container. This is fine, but it means you must note jostle, stir, or pour haphazardly when you get to the bottom of your container. Even if you don’t squeeze, there will be some sediment at the bottom… pour slowly and keep your straw up off the bottom of your beverage conveyance receptacle and you’ll be okay)
    – Once the juices are pretty much done, I leave the bag of used grounds in the sink to dry (Bonus use – For the ‘granolas’ out there, sprinkle the expired grounds in your garden to help the vegetables/flowers/medicinal what-have-you to grow better. Or… for all of you who hate the earth, scoop some into zip-top sandwich bags (for cleanliness), leaving the bags open (for utility), and place the bags in your trash containers, underneath those non-reusable, land-fill hogging trash bags to keep your garbage area smelling less like San Francisco and more like Seattle)
    – Congratulate yourself on a job well done
    (Once the grounds are dry, you can use them and shake most of whatever is left of them out into the trash, then turn the bag inside out and rinse in the sink. I roll mine up and leave it in mason jar on the window sill to dry, and possibly to lure a wayward palm civet into my ingenious coffee plans)

    The resulting iced coffee should be adjusted with water or milk, depending upon your tastes. I like mine straight up with some flavored cream, but my wife does about 3:1 coffee to skim milk with an equal packet. Somehow, we both live on despite our differences of coffee strength and flavoring… and you will too!

    This item has held up like a champ for the past few weeks (that’s about 5 uses so far)
