Homemade Cold-Brew Iced Coffee

Growing up in New Orleans spoiled me for many things, but none more than for a great cup of iced coffee. During summer months it is absolutely impossible to drink anything else. There is nothing better than grabbing a medium iced from PJ’s, having a smoke, and submitting to the angry heat of the southern sun.

In Boston, admist the cluster of Dunkin and Starbucks, it can be hard to find a quick, cheap cup so I decided to make my own. Back in college,  a couple of friends made their own “cold brew” with a Toddy system, which was damn good but overpriced. I figured that I could do the same thing without buying the $50 kit…

I found some great info online, mainly here, and it’s super easy:

Get a 1lb of coffee you like, ground coarse…

 Mix coffee with 1 gallon filtered room-temp water and wait 8-12 hours…

Get a pitcher and strainer…


After the coffee is chilled, your cold-brew coffee concentrate is done. And you’re ready to make an iced coffee.

Careful, this stuff is gooood, but strong! I genereally do a 1:1 water/coffee mix.

    The best places to apply cologne are the wrists, neck, arm pits,
    back of leg (opposite side of the knee), and
    behind your ears. Attitude by Giorgio Armani fits the man who has regular days where you have to
    roll up your sleeves and get the job done. This cologne takes Fierce to the next level by incorporating clean spices and herbal notes.
