When it’s freezing outside, my boyfriend loves a good hot cup of coffee. When it’s roasting outside, my boyfriend loves a good hot cup of coffee.
I have tried to persuade him to cool down with a refreshing iced coffee in the summertime, but he’ll have none of it.
Seattle’s Best even sent me a selection of coffee with which I tried tempting him. He still refused to try it iced, but he sure didn’t refuse to try it hot. Now he’s hooked, but like I said… hot.
Anyhow, for the rest of you…if you enjoy iced coffee, here’s how to make it at home. (Recipe from Seattle’s Best Coffee)
Simple Iced Coffee Recipe
2 ½ cups cold water
1 ½ cups ground Seattle’s Best Coffee (they recommend level 4, but choose your favorite)
Coffee filter or cheese cloth
Carafe or bowl with lid
Pour grounds into a bowl. Add 1 cup cold water and stir gently. Slowly add remaining 1 ½ cups cold water, agitating the grounds as little as possible.
Cover, steep at room temperature for 12 hours.
Strain the coffee grounds through a filter. Store concentrate in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
To serve, add 1 part coffee concentrate to 3 parts water over ice. Enjoy your smooth-tasting iced coffee with your favorite mix-ins or toppings.
Or you can have it hot (if you’re stubborn).
