Cold Brewed Iced Coffee


When did August get here by the way?? On another note, have I mentioned that I really like iced coffee? Dunkin Donuts is my favorite.. I know I'm so high end classy right? Sometimes I'm too lazy to leave work and drive to a DnD (as I like to call them), so I plan ahead and make iced coffee at work. It takes overnight though... which can suck when you have a hankering and didn't plan ahead.. but if you do, it's awesome :)

How do you take your coffee? I'm a half and half with a little splenda kinda gal.


Cold-Brewed Ice Coffee
New York Times 6/27/07

Yield: Two drinks

1/3 cup ground coffee (medium-coarse grind is best)
Milk (optional)

1. In a jar, stir together coffee and 1 1/2 cups water. Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight or 12 hours.

2. Strain twice through a coffee filter, a fine-mesh sieve or a sieve lined with cheesecloth. In a tall glass filled with ice, mix equal parts coffee concentrate and water, or to taste. If desired, add milk.

It really is just that easy! And you will be so surprised by the taste. Give it a try!

I love iced coffee, this sounds like a great idea! I bet I could use my french press to strain it, what do you think?
