It’s ice coffee season—finally! I am a coffee person. All the way. Love coffee. Probably drink it too much. If you like tea we can still be friends. Coffee is awesome.
I love to get coffee out but I try to brew my own at home most of the time. It just seems more economical. So while I spring for a latte here and there I am always trying to perfect my own at-home coffee favorites. A current favorite of mine is salted caramel ice coffee!
The only real trick to making iced coffee at home is that it involves a little more planning, because cold brewing coffee takes time. I use a french press to make coffee at home; to cold brew I simply coarsely grind my coffee beans (I use about a tablespoon or two more than when I am hot brewing, because ice coffee needs to be a bit stronger because it gets watered down with ice) add them to my press, fill with filtered (cold) water and let that set overnight. In the morning I’m ready to press and go! I love adding a spoonful of caramel with a little sprinkle of sea salt. And I love me some cream in my coffee.
Have fun making your own ice coffee this season! xo. Emma
