Before boiling, use a spoon to take out all the coffee beans. Then put on high heat to boil (157 degrees, if you like the science).
Take the pan off the boil and then slowly pour in the cold brew coffee, stirring as you do so.
Once cooled, it is ready to serve and can be kept for up to 2 weeks. Store in a dry cool place.
