If you love iced coffee and you're not already brewing your own, you need to invest in a French press and start making your own cold brew. It is so insanely easy. You don't need a lot of time or fancy equipment. Plus, it's a lot cheaper to invest in a French press than it is to buy a cup of iced coffee every day.
I started making cold brew a year ago, and it's been a lifesaver. I can roll out of bed and pour myself a glass of cold brew (with milk). I don't have to get dressed, walk to the coffee shop, order coffee (interacting with people in the morning is hard), and then pay. Here's how to make cold brew coffee in a French press.
- Prep Time:5 mins
- Cook Time:6 hrs
- Total Time:6 hrs 5 mins
- 6 tablespoons coffee beans
- 3 cups filtered water
Grind your coffee beans. Use medium or coarse settings.
Pour ground coffee into carafe (aka the plastic or glass container).
Add filtered water. Place plunger and lid on without touching the liquid.
Let sit for at least 6 hours. I usually let it sit overnight.
Push down the plunger. Pour and enjoy!
