Coffee Talk: Iced Coffee at Home

A little while ago, my friend Rebecca shared her method for getting Iced Coffee perfected at home and reminded me—yes! forehead smack!—cold brew. It’s been ages!

Simply combine your coffee grounds and water in a French Press, and leave overnight. You can leave it on the counter or in the fridge, but don’t plunge the press until the following morning.

And here’s an extra step you can take to really get it right: use your first batch to fill an ice tray! Then use coffee cubes rather than ice cubes–which makes the drink last without becoming watered down. A 1/2-cup of grounds with 2 cups of water should be about right.
