Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee Kind of Sunday

If you have coffee beans, water, some kind of filter and a fridge, you can make iced coffee. That’s what I did for the first time a few days ago, and then today.

I used the recipe (below), but modified it a bit for stronger coffee.

Here’s the NY Times recipe:

1/3 cup ground coffee (medium-coarse grind is best)
Milk (optional).

1. In a jar, stir together coffee and 1 1/2 cups water. Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight or 12 hours.

2. Strain twice through a coffee filter, a fine-mesh sieve or a sieve lined with cheesecloth. In a tall glass filled with ice, mix equal parts coffee concentrate and water, or to taste. If desired, add milk.

I used 1/2 cup ground coffee with 2 cups water and mixed the finished coffee product with 1/2 the recommended water. Mine was the superior iced coffee, I think — but use the NY Times recipe by all means if you’re not a fan of strong coffee.
