How do you enjoy coffee in 90 or even 100-degree weather comfortably? One way is to drink cold brew coffee, which is what I’ve been doing for much of the summer. Sure, you could buy the stuff from a cafe or even a grocery store, but it’s simple to make, and it’s fun to see what your favorite beans taste like with a different flavor extraction process. The way I’ve been preparing this refreshing coffee drink is by
- putting ground coffee in a French press with filtered tap water, and
- letting it “brew” at room temperature for about twelve hours, then
- pouring the resulting coffee in a container to be stored in the refrigerator.
From there, it’s just a matter of pouring the cold brew into a chilled glass or over ice to enjoy on hot afternoon or warm evening…
