Iced coffee is delicious and a year-round delight.
But buying cold brew after cold brew gets expensive, and making hot coffee and then putting it over ice 1. Doesn’t taste as good 2. Takes too long to get your morning caffeine fix.
Here’s how to get your caffeine fix:
Pour 14-16 tablespoons of your favorite ground beans* into the fine mesh filter, and screw said filter into the lid of the pitcher.
Pour 32 ounces of water into the pitcher (you can measure, which I do, or eyeball it to around 3/4 of the way full).
Drop the filter into the pitcher, screwing the lid on tight.
Stick that baby in the fridge to brew overnight (or up to 36 hours).
And wake up to a whole PITCHERFUL of goodness!!
Take the filter filled with grounds out, and the coffee will keep for days and days! And thanks to the airtight seal, the flavor will stay fresh and free of odors from other food in your fridge (looking at you, garlicky leftovers)
It's pretty concentrated, so you can either dilute it with water or milk, or just drink it straight with ice (I've done all three).
DID I MENTION IT'S DISHWASHER SAFE?!?!
