    The ratio you're making is a concentrate, and will be pretty strong... probably undrinkable, microwave or not, unless you cut with something like water or cream.

    I said it would most likely be undrinkable... that seems like a simple no to me.

    Like chast said, just do it.

    Lunfardo,

    Why would you want to go to all the trouble of making cold brewed coffee concentrate and then want to heat it in the microwave?

    Since reheating hot coffee in the microwave alters the taste (not in a good way), I imagine that heating cold brewed concentrate in the microwave wouldn't be a good idea.

    If you decide to experiment and try to do it, please let us know how it works out for you.

    I have no clue what that's supposed to mean.

    One thing you'll discover about this Coffee Forum is that there are a wide variety of opinions here. Just consider each one and then make up your own mind.

    We can learn a lot by asking questions and experimenting.

    LOL This sounds like the type of question the guy wanting to know if it was OK to take his fart joke vid to a job interview would ask.

    Concentrate on the concentrate…..
