Hi there! One of my favorite parts about summer is iced coffee. I'm a fan of hot or cold coffee, but cold-brew is always a bit stronger than your typical warm cup. Cold-brew coffee is essentially a coffee concentrate, and is made by brewing the coffee with cold water instead of hot. It's super simple to-do, and is made even simpler if you use a french-press like I do. You can make it without one, your just have to use cheesecloth or a regular coffee filter to filter it, and that can get a little messy. With a french-press, the filter is built in, so all you have to do once it's brewed is push the plunger down and pour. Get the how-to below!
Ingredients: Yields 4 servings of cold-brew
- 4 heaping tablespoons of coffee, or one for each cup, depending on if you want more or less
- 4 cups of cold water
Step one - Scoop out your coffee into your vessel for brewing, and douse with cold water until filled.
Step two - Stir, stir, stir. You want to make sure all of the grounds get wet and aren't sitting on top of the water.
Step three - Let brew in the fridge for twelve hours, or overnight. After it's done brewing, filter into a pitcher or jar and serve over ice. Enjoy!
