Homemade Iced Coffee

Good morning!

Before you head to the coffee shop and pay around $3 for your iced coffee, check my easy recipe out.

Now that it's warmer, iced coffee sounds so satisfying. With this easy recipe you can have your own home brewed iced coffee in a big jug in the fridge and it'll last you a couple of weeks, depending on how much you drink.

Simply add about 1 lb course ground coffee and gallon of water in a large bowl or jug and let sit 24 hours. This does not need to be refrigerated. You can stir it around from time to time.

When it's ready, place a strainer over a large pitcher and line with a coffee liner or cheese cloth. Pour in the grounds/water solution a little bit at a time. The strainer and coffee liner will catch the grounds and allow the cold brewed coffee to drip in to your pitcher. You will have to replace the liner a few times as it gets saturated with grounds. The whole process takes about an hour. I was watching a movie during it, so I would pour enough to almost start trickling over the liner and then walk away for 15 minutes.

(Yes, I believe my sink is from 1973.)

Once you strain all the coffee, you should have about a gallon of home brewed iced coffee at your disposal. Keep in the fridge. Typically, cold brewed coffee is much stronger than drip, so I like to pour about half coffee half almond milk into my glass. Sweeten as desired.
