This past week I have been learning all about cold brew iced coffee. Essentially cold brew is exactly that pouring water over the coffee and letting it sit in the fridge for an extended period of time to brew instead of using hot water. I decided to try making cold brew using the instructions on this post from The Creative Princess.
It’s really pretty isn’t it? My husband was at a loss as to what this was in our fridge when he came home! I know he enjoyed it later though once I explained what I was doing.
I let this sit overnight, then I strained the coffee in order to remove the grounds. Next, I placed the rest in a pitcher and one ice cube tray to make some coffee ice cubes!
Once I was done, I was able to make a delicious coffee using cold brew which actually is much more subtle taste than using the hot coffee over ice. The hot coffee is a bit more bitter. I’m guessing another reason for the taste being not as bitter is that it is sitting for a while before using it.
This recipe is essentially a normal iced latte; however, I added the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough syrup from Torani. This can be found online, although I found it at a local restaurant supply store.
Enjoy this delicious start to your day!
