Making Iced Coffee      
  7/1/2011 2:07:32 PM

Since summer is here, I decided to change up some of my daily coffee dosage intake.  I knew about those big drippers the big-time coffee drinkers used to make iced coffee.  I simply couldn't afford that.  I used to use my trusty Ikea espresso maker.  The problem with that is I start with boiling hot coffee, which I then dilute with tons of ice.  That didn't make too much sense.

A few weeks back, I saw a short clip on Food Network about making iced coffee.  I thought it was a great idea.  It's quite simple actually.  Put the grinds into a french press.  I used the same ratio as making hot coffee.  Add water, and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  I did just that last night.  I have to say.  I am quite impressed.  Letting the coffee steep overnight did extract the flavors.  Since I did not have my coffee ground for a french press, I had to take one extra step.  I passed the iced coffee through a paper filter to take out the fine grinds.

I suppose if you do not own a french press, any container would do.  I'd suggest one with a lid to prevent accidents.  If you do not have a over-the-mug dripper, you can simply put a paper filter in your coffee maker, and use the built-in one.  Just don't turn it on by habbit.

Enjoy!
