Homemade Iced Coffee

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


  1. Fill a tea kettle or pot with 2 ¾ cups of water, and allow to boil.
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, add 16 tablespoons of ground coffee to the French press.
  3. After water has boiled, remove from heat and let sit for a minute to slightly lower the temperature.
  4. Pour the hot water over the coffee grounds, and stir to make sure all are covered.
  5. Set the plunger loosely on the top to trap the heat, and let brew for 4 minutes.
  6. After 4 minutes, slowly press the plunger down.
  7. Add the ice to the pitcher, and pour the coffee over the ice and stir.
  8. Serve with more ice, stevia, and soy milk!
