We’ve put our heads together to bring you a series of top recommendations for iced coffee from around the world.
When it comes to iced coffee you wouldn’t be alone if the first thing that came to mind was a delicious cold brew. It’s everywhere during the summer months and for good reason. This popular summer drink produces a naturally sweeter, less acidic drink that delivers the perfect relief from a hot summers afternoon. Not to mention it’s also extremely easy to make yourself. As part of our series of top iced coffees from around the world we wanted to share with you exactly how to make your own cold brew to enjoy at your leisure.
- cold water
- ground coffee - we recommend our Single Origin Peruvian Cajamarca beans
- ice cubes
- milk, to taste
- sugar, to taste
1) To begin add cold water to ground coffee, usually at a ratio of around 1:8, and stir gently. Then leave to steep for 18 to 24 hours. We promise it will be worth the wait.
2) After what may feel like the longest day of your life, strain the coffee to remove any larger grounds that may still remain.
3) Add ice, milk and sugar to taste.
An added benefit is that you can keep your cold brew in the fridge for up to a month to enjoy whenever the mood strikes; so feel free to make a large quantity and avoid the dreaded wait every time you want to enjoy your beloved cold brew.
