Guys: I actually made something I pinned on pinterest and it turned out so good I had to share.
Maybe it's just in PA, but cold brew is all the rage right now, at Starbucks and local coffee shops alike. Who knew it was so easy to make at home?!
All you need:
1 12oz bag of coffee grounds (I used Starbucks but will probably experiment with others)
10.5 cups room temperature water
*Optional* Your choice of sweetener or cream
Combine coffee grounds and water in plastic container with lid. Stir until all grounds are wet and let "brew" overnight in fridge.
Remove from fridge and pour over mesh colander covered in cheese cloth to separate grounds from concentrate. Throw away grounds.
Store concentrate in fridge and to make one cup full cup with ice, fill 1/3 with concentrate, add water until cup is almost full. Add any cream or sweetener and enjoy! The original recipie suggested sweetened condensed milk, I had it with half & half and simple syrup, but my favorite combo so far is just plain on sweet cream coffee creamer!! Let me tell you...Yummo.
Really after you make the concentrate the rest is a "make it how you like it" experiment! Besides it being easy and delicious, it's also total money saver!
Enjoy! (and if you make it yourself please share your favorite coffee and sweetener combos)
