Unlike most iced coffee recipes, this slow-steeped cold drink never uses warm water for brewing. Try it today.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole coffee beans
  • 4 cups water , at room temperature

Instructions

  • COARSELY grind coffee beans. Combine with water in a 1.5-L jar. Let stand at room temperature, covered, for 24 hours.
  • STRAIN through a large coffee filter or cheesecloth.
  • FILL a glass with ice. Add equal parts coffee concentrate and cold water or milk. (Concentrate makes about 6 six cups of iced coffee.)
