Coffee is my love language. I spend time with it every morning, and most afternoons…even some evenings. It is a very sweet relationship that I have with coffee. I am just playing, but really and truly I do love some coffee. So I am always trying new ways of enjoying my favorite drink! French Press is my method of choice when it comes to brewing a strong cup of coffee. The pressing creates a smooth but bold flavor, and it eliminates the bitter and acidic aftertaste. I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to have a cold drink in the afternoon, and iced coffee always hits the spot.
This recipe, if you can even call it that, it simple. It is more of a method, or process to get you the most smooth, rich cup of iced coffee that you would think you were at your favorite coffee shop. I add heavy cream, sugar, or even sometimes if I am feeling really fancy, sweetened condensed milk.
This method of brewing is slow, it cannot be done in an hour, but it is so worth the extra time put in! I promise you will love this method of cold brewing! And your friends and family will too. Enjoy!!
