Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee

I’m up in Boston for a few days for work and found myself making a pitcher of cold-brewed iced coffee with none other than Mr. Doug Pfeffer (if you haven’t explored his crazy awesome projects it’s worth it). Anyway, after getting it all done I figured I’d share the recipe for this summer delicacy:

  1. Mix a ratio of 1.5 cups water to 1/3 cup ground coffee (medium grind is best, which is also the same stuff you put in a coffee machine)
  2. Let it sit in the fridge for around 12 hours (more should be fine, less is probably not so good)
  3. Strain through a coffee filter or something else super fine
  4. Drink (over ice if you so desire)

    Sure, come up to Boston and don’t say hi :)

    Enjoy the city while you’re here and I think I’ll give that coffee a shot. The Seattle’s Best shops (mostly in Borders) are the only places I see commercial cold brewed coffee and its pretty good.

    Welcome to Boston! I tasted cold brewed iced coffee for the first time at Tazza, a jazz club and coffee shop in Providence. It was one of the most lovely things I’ve ever had. Thanks for the recipe!
