I love iced coffee. I drink it all year round and have it just about everyday. And while the old fashioned method of brewing in a french press or espresso machine is great for a quick fix, once I discovered how easy it is to make your own cold brew I don’t think I’ll ever look back. Letting the coffee steep at room temperature for a longer period of time gives it a truly unique flavour. It is less acidic, more caffeinated and super strong. Perfect for adding ice without over diluting. Great paired with my Vanilla Simple Syrup recipe.
What you need:
- 1 cup coarsely ground coffee
- 4 cups filtered water
- Fine mesh sieve
- Large mason jar or bowl
- optional: coffee filter or cheese cloth
Step 1 – Mix coffee and water in a large mason jar or bowl.
Step 2 – Cover and let sit for 14 to 24 hours.
Step 3 – Strain with a sieve. (Option to fit sieve with coffee filter or cheese cloth for even less grinds).
Step 4 – Drink with ice. Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy!
