My son is a barista at Starbucks. He makes up a large amount of cold brewed coffee everyday. I am fascinated by the process and decided to try it on a smaller scale.
I used a mild blend, ground for the French press.
3/4 cup of coffee and then filled the Bodum to the top with filtered water. I stirred it well and let it brew overnight at room temperature.
I also made a supply of simple syrup to use as sweetener.
I didn’t find the brew strong enough to dilute 1:1 with water. It is, however, not at all bitter which is one of the problems depending on you blend. I diluted it a bit with the simple syrup and ice cube and a splash of half and half.
A lovely summer iced coffee!
