Spring. I love everything about it. Sunshine, flowering trees, warm breeze through open windows, pedicures, taking off my pants outdoors.
What? Nobody can see me. And underwear is totally the same thing as a bathing suit. Stop judging.
But my favorite part of spring? Making the switch from hot coffee to iced. Mishelle already taught us how to make hot-brewed iced coffee. But, I’m talking about a delicious, concentrated, cold-brewed iced coffee that you can make yourself at home.
You will need:
Straining device (I use a pasta strainer or a flour sifter)
1 cup ground coffee beans
1 quart water
Add ground coffee to a pitcher, top with cold water, and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 12 hours.
After 12 hours, you have officially cold-brewed coffee. Now you just need to filter it. I like to double filter mine, first through a mesh strainer….
…then through a coffee filter.
Now you have a delicious, concentrated, cold-brewed coffee. To serve, fill a cup with ice, add concentrate and mix with water, milk, or your favorite flavored creamer.
