Cold-Brewed Coffee

Recipe by  

"Coffee brewed slowly in cold water is less acidic than hot brewed. You can use this concentrate straight over ice or you can microwave half a mug coffee and then add half a cup of boiling water for quick hot coffee. Develop your own ratio of coffee to water for your custom brew."

I had this over ice. It's the only coffee I've ever had that actually tastes as delicious as ground coffee smells.

Cold brewing makes your iced coffee have a smooth tastes as opposed to hot brewing and then chilling which makes it bitter. Love this recipe. I keep it in the fridge and everyone ads their own creamer and sugar for their tastes. Also, the flavored syrups for coffee work nicely for this recipe.

Excellent. NOTE: I used Starbucks' Guatemala Antigua coffee for this recipe.

This technique is brilliant (first heard about it from Rhee Drummond, the PIoneer Woman of Cooking channel). I make this in huge quantities because I go thru gallons of this in hot weather. It is super, and is better than any commercial iced coffee you can buy. It's a bit messy to clean up, but worth every drop. And if you cold brew a gallon, it lasts if refrigerated.

This recipe is worth the time. Nothing smoother than cold brewed coffee
