The idea left me, well, cool.

The idea left me, well, cool. Coffee is supposed for being hot. Very, very hot.

And then, I made a serious mistake. I accepted a sample of iced coffee in a popular coffee shop. It turned out strong, sweet, creamy along with icy, icy cold. Amazing.

I needed to figure out how to make this myself — it absolutely was that good — because just as much as I might want iced espresso again, I was not likely to pay the outrageous price to own someone else make it for me.

One might think, as I did, that pouring hot java over ice and adding milk and sugar would have the desired effect. Not exactly. Not also close.

The problem is the ice seriously dilutes your coffee. This dilemma sent me hunting for the secret for the reason why the sample was not at all diluted. That's when WHEN I discovered that Ree Drummond, That Pioneer Woman, is quite an iced caffeine aficionado and quite ready to share her secrets.


First, it's essential to make a big batch of predominant cold brew coffee emphasis. This is the solution. You'll need a big container, ground coffee along with water. And time — at the very least eight hours (exact formula and instructions below).

Cold-brew coffee is not just coffee served cold. The thing that causes it to be cold-brew coffee is that the brewing process itself takes place without heat. Instead of steeping the grounds in trouble, you steep them in cold water for just a lot longer.

And while you can create as little as A SINGLE cup of cold brew concentrate during a period, why would you? I'd rather make 2 gallons at the same time because it keeps well for around six weeks in your refrigerator.


Once you have that beautiful concentrate locked and also loaded, it's time to make one or numerous tall, beautiful, lovely iced coffees! You'll need ice, coffee concentrate and the selection of milk, cream and/or suscrose. Or just drink them black. It will be nonacidic but not the least bit poisonous.

And there you are: Icy-cold, undiluted, perfect iced espresso!

Dump 1 pound of ground coffee in to a very large container. Any brand of ground coffee do, but you'll be super happy should you start with something dim, rich and freshly roasted.

Now pour in 8 quarts (2 gallons) with cold water. The water buy is important: If your tap normal water is highly chlorinated (taste and smell it to discover this; if it tastes good to your account, use tap water here), go for bottled or filtered normal water.

Stir with a wooden spoon until all the dry coffee is soaked. Cover. Allow to steep at room temperature for as a minimum 8 hours; longer is definitely fine.

Line a big sieve or colander with several layers of cheesecloth, in addition to pour the steeped coffee beans grounds through it. You’ll prod it a bit for getting all of that coffees perfectly sieved, but stick to it. You'll end up with just shy of SEVEN quarts of rich, dark coffee concentrate that may be void of bitterness and small in acidity.

Discard your coffee dregs; tightly cover the concentrate, and place it within the refrigerator.


Not ready to commit to nearly 3 gallons of coffee focus? No problem. Scale along the proportions: 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per cup of cold normal water


Fill up a 12-ounce glass — or even a one-quart canning vessel — with ice.

Pour very cold coffee concentrate within the ice until the glass or jar is about three-quarters full.

Add your available choice of milk or cream.

Add how much sugar you need for making it as sweet since you desire. Stir to selection.

Remember, the coffee concentrate will keep well in the refrigerator as much as six weeks, provided it truly is kept tightly covered. Appreciate!
