Easy Cold-Brewed Coffee

It's hot, like, it's so ridiculously hot you don't even want to go outside.  It's almost "officially" summer (as if we had any other season in Florida) and the days of kind-of-bearable weather are over.  It's okay, though, because I have a solution.

Iced coffee!

Not that this is breaking news, but get excited because we're not talking about plain hot coffee poured over ice here (cause let's admit it--that's gross).

I discovered cold-brewed coffee a little while ago, and after reading about how much better it is (less acidic, tastes better than hot coffee over ice, etc.) I've wanted to try some.  Specifically, I've been wanting to try the already made cold-brewed coffee concentrate thats sold in bottles--but I can't find it anywhere.

Yet another reason why my hometown needs a Whole Food's. (Please, I'm begging you.)

Since it's summer, and iced coffee is a necessity, I sucked it up and made my own cold-brewed coffee. It's so easy, it doesn't require instructions--but I'm going to tell you how to make it anyway.

I did a lot of research for the best way to make cold-brewed coffee (I'm not into trial and error when it involves my source of caffeine) and the Toddy Cold Brew System is probably the best and easiest option, but a french press works just as well!


1. Pour 1 cup of ground coffee beans and 2 cups of water into your french press.

2. Cover with plastic wrap (or the lid as long as you don't press down the plunger) and place in the fridge for 12-15 hours.

3. Get excited about the coffee you'll have in 12-15 hours.

4. Plunge the French press to separate the gross coffee grounds from your wonderful cold-brewed coffee.

5. Pour yourself some coffee concentrate and add however much ice, water, milk, and syrup sweetener your heart desires (I personally use a little bit of water and a lot of milk).

You can save whatever is left to have later on in the week! (Or later on in the day--whichever.)
