Make your own brewed iced coffee

We used to have a French Press (moment of silence) to make cold brew coffee with …

And I still love cold coffee in the summer time but am trying to curb the habit of the coffee shop every day.

So, I have another idea!

You’ll need:

Coffee filters
Coffee beans, ground
Small rubber bands
A jug with a lid
Water

I make coffee bombs for cold brew, that’s my solution. So in one filter I put 1/4 C ground coffee beans and then secure the top with a small rubber band like so:

Add 3 coffee bombs to my jug and fill with water.

Place the lid on and let it steep over night in the fridge – right after you fill it up it’ll start to “brew”.

When you wake up in the morning and it’s already 95 degree’s outside you’ll kiss that little jug of black-gold with an open mouth. It’s ok, we won’t watch.

Add a little creamer (or not!) and sip away.

Enjoy! Please Pin away, share and like. This needs to be shouted from the mountaintops, obviously.

How are you surviving your summer heat? Any fun drinks or oldie’s you run to in this weather?

  1. How long is the coffee good/fresh for once brewed? Assuming you don’t drink the whole pitcher in a morning 🙂

  2. You don’t? …

    If you keep the coffee bombs in the pitcher it’ll just keep getting stronger – so I’d remove them and then it’ll stay good for a week in the fridge. Our’s lasts 2 days, tops.

  3. Now I want to dump out the Kool-Aid in order to make this. I need more than one pitcher, I think.

  4. How much water to coffee bombs ratio? I have different pitchers. Plus you said as it stays in longer the stronger it gets. Should we add water too it? To have it continue to be available throughout the week?

  5. Hi Tiffany! I don’t think I ever paid attention to the ratio. I just used a lot of coffee bombs to a lot of water 🙂 I know, super helpful. I think the idea was (for me) to make it strong, so I did less water or a smaller container for my first try to see if I liked it and tweaked it from there. You could continue to add water to it or see how long one container lasts you. I don’t make this as often I was when this was published so I’m out of the practice. Hopefully you can play with it enough to get it to where you enjoy it. Come back and tell us what you did and how it went. Enjoy!
