Cold Brewing Your Way to the Perfect Iced Coffee

by Whole Latte Love September 07, 2016 1 min read

It's that time of year. The sun is shining. The flowers are blooming. And, some of us are making the change from a comforting warm brew to a cold and refreshing iced coffee. But, before you dump hot coffee over ice and call it a day, consider cold brewing a gourmet iced coffee.

Don't worry, it's not hard. But, a good cold brew will require some patience on your part. The payoff, however - a great-tasting, full-flavored coffee that's low in acidity - is well worth the time and effort. Go ahead, give it a whirl. You won't regret it.

Tip: Start the cold-brewing process before going to bed, you'll have ready-to-drink coffee in the morning.

Cold-Brew Coffee

Ingredients

  • A French Press
  • Whole Bean Coffee
  • A Grinder

Instructions

  1. Grind your beans. You'll want a coarse, but consistent, grind for French press coffee.
  2. Add the ground coffee and room-temperature water to your French press. Stir.
  3. Let sit for 8-12 hours.
  4. Press down on the plunger to strain your coffee.
  5. Pour over ice and enjoy.

Tip: For an extra flavorful drink, brew some coffee, let cool. Use the coffee to fill an ice tray and freeze it. Use the coffee cubes in your drink instead of regular ice.
