Overstocked, and accumulated a stockpile of old coffee grounds at home? Here's a way to repurpose your old coffee grounds.
Coffee Kombucha Recipe
100ml Kombucha starter
100g coarse-ground coffee
80g raw cane sugar/honey/white sugar
Glass jar (at least 1000ml)
Kitchen towel or clean cloth
Step 1: Brew the coffee
Steep coarse-ground coffee in 700 ml of water for 10 hours at room temperature. Strain with a paper filter to remove sediments and oils.
Step 2: Add Kombucha starter
Dissolve 80 g raw cane sugar in 200 mL water. Combine and mix the sugar syrup, kombucha starter, and cold brew coffee in a large glass jar.
Step 3: Ferment for 5 to 7 days
Cover with a clean kitchen towel and secure it with a rubber band. Leave it in room temperature. Label and monitor the fermentation process over 5 to 7 days. Reserve 100ml of your fermented coffee as a starter for your next batch of coffee konbucha!
Step 4: Bottle for 3 to 4 days
Transfer to an air-tight bottle and top up with sugar (1g sugar of per 100ml of kombucha). Refrigerate when bubbles are observed at the surface. Once it's chilled, you can pour and enjoy your naturally fizzy and fruity coffee ‘soda’!
