Perfect Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee
Preparation5 minTotal Time0:05
I make this recipe extra-easy by brewing before I go to bed at night in my 4-cup french press* and just pressing first thing in the morning. I'll just go ahead and admit that I buy my coffee pre-ground and it works great. A standard grind is fine, but look for one -- or grind yourself -- a little on the coarse side of standard. Use a coffee you like, and you may be surprised how much more you like it when you brew this way. I like a strong, small cup, and that's what this brew yields when served with a generous splash of milk. You can treat it like a concentrate and dilute it with cold filtered water to taste without any loss of quality.
grams (scant 1 cup) ground coffee
tablespoon brown sugar
teaspoon ground cinnamon
cups cold filtered water
Milk of choice or additional cold filtered water, to taste
Into a 4-cup french press, liquid measure or jar, pour the ground coffee, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour in half the water and stir well. Add remaining water and stir again.
Let sit at room temperature or in the fridge overnight, then press or strain through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag into a clean container.
To serve, fill glass with ice and pour in coffee and milk to taste. Dilute with cold filtered water if desired.
* I say 4-cup, the manufacturer says 8-cup because they call 4 ounces a cup. What??
