Ok, I made a batch of my Iced Coffee last night so I could show you “how to” make it. I am not a coffee connoisseur so I just use generic coffee grounds but if you have a fancy favorite use that. I will normally make it either in the morning before I leave for work or before I go to bed. It should “cold brew” about 8 hours, don’t get crazy on the time – give or take 8 hours. I always put mine in the fridge for the 8 hours but you can just leave it on your counter. All you have to do is add the water to the coffee grounds, let it brew (sit), strain and voila! I use 1 1/4 cup coffee grounds to 8 cups of water. When the liquid gold is ready . . . add ice, sweetener, a bit of milk and a bit of 1/2 & 1/2 . . . ENJOY!!!
