A couple of summer's ago, I read this article in the New York Times about cold-brewed coffee and became quite intrigued. I decided to give the recipe a try and I absolutely loved it!
Now, as soon as the weather turns warm, I start making my cold brewed coffee mix. The only difference is, rather than the mason jar recommended in the recipe, I like to use a french press.
I also like to double the recipe so I have the coffee mix ready for a couple of days.
Put 2/3 of a cup of your favorite ground coffee in the french press.
Top this off with water, put the lid on the press (making sure the plunger is up) and let it sit overnight.
The next morning, push the plunger on the press.
Then put some of this mix into a glass (anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 full depending on how strong you like your coffee).
Next add ice and cold water to fill the glass.
I like to add a splash of cream.
