What you’ll need
2 cups water + 1 cup coffee grounds (makes about 1.5 cups of cold brew iced coffee concentrate)
Combine the coffee grounds and water into a container and stir together thoroughly. Allow the coffee grounds and water to sit overnight, or for at least 12 hours.
Place a coffee filter in a strainer and place the strainer into a liquid measuring cup. Pour about 1/3 – 1/2 of the coffee grounds mixture into the filter and allow the cold brew to strain through. Pour the remaining coffee mixture onto the filter until all of the mixture has been strained.
Add equal parts cold water to the strained coffee mixture.
1.5 cups strained coffee + 1.5 cups cold water. Add ice and serve!
Don’t forget to have an array of flavoring syrups on hand to flavor your coffee with a touch of caramel, french vanilla, praline, butterscotch, pumpkin pie, or gingerbread.
