Iced Cold Brewed Coffee

Smooth coffee absent of bitterness, perfect for that refreshing sip of iced coffee. It takes a bit of time to make, but the results make it totally worth it.

  • 4 cups room temperature water
  • 1/2 cup coarse-ground coffee (can also be referred to as French-press ground)


  • Add the ground coffee to your French press carafe.  Pour in the water.
  •  Stir gently to incorporate the coffee grounds.
  • Place the carafe lid on, making sure that the plunger is in the up position.  Set aside on your countertop or in the fridge for 18-24 hours.
  • Gently push carafe plunger down to separate the grounds from the coffee.  Pour into glass carafe and store in the refrigerator until ready to drink.  Coffee will be good for 1 week in the fridge (if it lasts that long).
  • Drink as is, over ice, or add milk to make an iced latte.
