Hey! Guess what I did today! I finally made a successful batch of iced coffee that doesn’t taste bitter and watery. In fact, it actually tastes really good! And it was easy! My coffee habits are definitely expensive #StarbucksSnob, so this discovery will make a huge difference on my bank account! Better yet, this is one recipe that I can take back to school with me this fall. So without further ado, here’s my secret iced coffee recipe!
Makes 6 cups
- A 6-cup French press
- 16 Tablespoons medium roast coffee, ground coarsely for a coffee press
- 1 tablespoon measure
- A big pitcher
- 2 ¾ cups of ice
- 2 ¾ cups of water
- Fill a tea kettle or pot with 2 ¾ cups of water, and allow to boil.
- While waiting for the water to boil, add 16 tablespoons of ground coffee to the French press.
- After water has boiled, remove from heat and let sit for a minute to slightly lower the temperature.
- Pour the hot water over the coffee grounds, and stir to make sure all are covered.
- Set the plunger loosely on the top to trap the heat, and let brew for 4 minutes.
- After 4 minutes, slowly press the plunger down.
- Add the ice to the pitcher, and pour the coffee over the ice and stir.
- Serve with more ice, stevia, and soy milk!
