"If the nights stay over 50 degrees, I know the days are going to sell a lot of iced coffee. But I don’t drink iced coffee," he said. "I drink my hot coffee in the morning and by the afternoon, I’ll switch to something else."


At a glance

Cold-brewed iced coffee

1 1/2 cups water

5 tablespoons of coarsely ground coffee (light to medium roasts work best)

Special equipment

French press

paper coffee filter

Stir together coffee and water in a French press, do not plunge.

Allow the mixture to rest at room temperature overnight or at least 12 hours. Strain the coffee by using the plunger on the French press.

Pour the coffee through a paper coffee filter to strain a second time. This will yield about 1 1/2 cups of coffee concentrate. Pour the coffee concentrate into glasses and mix with equal parts water, or to taste.

Serving » 1 1/2 cups concentrate
