Incredible iced coffee

 

STEP #1 ROAST IT

STEP #2 GRIND IT

STEP #3 POUR IT

I combine room-temperature water (usually filtered, as my tap water doesn’t taste great) and freshly ground coffee in a large French press. The press makes it’s a snap to separate the concentrate from the grinds after brewing

STEP #4 STIR IT

After about 10 minutes, a solid raft of coffee grinds will form on the surface. I find it important to stir this raft into the water to maximize contact with the ground coffee.

STEP #5

STEP #6 COVER IT

Next, I cover the French press with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for 24 hours (give or take an hour in either direction). I’ve done room-temperature brews as short as 12 hours and as long as 72 hours. Twenty-four hours is consistently the sweet spot.

STEP #7 PRESS IT

STEP #8 FILTER IT

STEP #9 DILUTE IT

STEP #10 SALT IT

Now, instead of reaching for the sugar (which is unnecessary with super-smooth cold-brew) I stir in a pinch of Kosher salt. Just trust me on this one.
